Hate pricing all the little items you have for sale and sitting there all day? Put everything out in the driveway and advertise a free yard sale. If you want it or need it take it for free. You won't have anything left at the end of the day.

Vintage planters with figurines make handy holders for desk items like pens/pencils, scissors, and letter holders. These old ceramic collectables from the 40's and 50's are the perfect place to hold reading eyeglasses. I keep a lamb on my kitchen counter, a guy with a bowling ball on my desk, and girl with a flounced skirt and parasol on my bedside table.
Find vintage planters at thrift shops and yard sales.
I use the "reverse search" on the internet with the person's yard sale address to call them and ask if they have items I'm interested in buying. This saves time and gas going to sales I won't find anything at that I want, & it gets me early to sales where I am interested.
This especially helps to find if they have sizes I'm interested in.
