Sometimes the mass garage sales have rules.  Get your dad to find out what they are and if there’s nothing against it, go ahead!

If there are no rules, I’d bring ’em along to sell.  You never know!

I don’t think there is anything wrong with it, but the ‘audience’ is different than what you would typically sell to, it’s not a craft fair. People want the cheapest deal they can find at garage sales so expect to be haggled with.

My grandmother makes scrunchies, pot holders, etc that she always puts out at her garage sale and they never do that great. Good luck!

@tmsing:  It won’t hurt you to try. Just make sure that the area where you are having the garage sale doesn’t require a permit. Once I was hosting a garage sale with my landlord when I lived in Cali, and we got written up for holding one without a permit! It’s a stupid law/rule imo and just one more way to get money out of hard-working citizens (as a permit costs $100 or something). So make sure your bases are covered there.

Sounds like a perfect opportunity to get it out there!  Bring business cards!  I love buying all my cards from artists like you actually.

eh, I wouldn’t personally. I love garage saling and honestly I wouldn’t purchase cards at one even if they were handmade. To me that is something that would go along the lines of craft fair.
