Michigan Shop’s Customer Garage Sale

Homestead Needle Arts (8185 Holly Road, Suite 4) in Grand Blanc has a great event each summer, the Customer Garage Sale! It’s going to be July 20 and it’s easy to participate. This is the time that YOU can sell your own items and shop for needlepoint treasures. There is no fee to attend but there is a seller fee for the first 25 items. REMEMBER, CASH OR CHECKS ARE THE ONLY METHODS OF PAYMENT FOR THE GARAGE SALE ITEMS. Anybody wanting to use a charge card for garage sale items will have to pay an additional charge fee of 4%.

RULES – READ TO PARTICIPATE IN SELLING.

1. SELLER FEE:
There is a NON-REFUNDABLE $1 PER ITEM SELLER FEE WITH A MAXIMUM FEE OF $25. The fee will be paid when you drop your items off. You will need to pay this fee by cash or check.

2. WHAT YOU CAN PUT IN THE GARAGE SALE:
Your items must be needlepoint related. That means canvas of any type or size, threads of any type, books, and stitching tools of any type or size. Canvases you have started or finished are acceptable! NO MAGAZINES, NO CROSS STITCH, NO KNITTING, etc.

3. MAKE A LIST OF YOUR ITEMS:
Using a piece of 8-1/2 x 11″ paper put your NAME, DAYTIME PHONE NUMBER, AND YOUR THREE INITIALS AT THE TOP. Number it down the left side using the same numbers as your pieces. 001, 002, etc. Give me a SHORT description of each piece for example 001 Bird canvas, 002 needlepoint book, 003 flower canvas, AND THE PRICE! If your price is not legible on the tag I can refer to your list. (It’s okay to choose a different set of initials if you prefer total anonymity.)

4. TAG EACH ITEM AS FOLLOWS:
Your items must be marked with your price wanted and your 3 initials clearly on a tag that we can all find. Use tags that will stay on or with your item. Stapling them to the item is BEST. DO NOT PUT YOUR CANVASES IN PLASTIC. THEY SELL BETTER IF THEY ARE NOT IN PLASTIC BAGS.

5. WHAT ITEMS REQUIRE PACKAGING:
It’s best to put small items and threads in a clear plastic zip lock bag. IF THEY GO WITH A CANVAS, STAPLE THE BAG TO THE CANVAS!

6. DROP OFF DATES:
