yardsale set

Now that you've tackled your spring cleaning, it's time to set up a garage sale for those unwanted but sellable items! 

The key to running a smooth yard sale is to have the proper signage and easily-visible price tags. The Fiskars Fuse Creativity System® really comes in handy for this!
