  • SUGAR BOWL SALE

    We’re supporting the Buckeyes with a Sugar Bowl Sale. On Friday, January 2 all shoppers will get 10% off for every OSU touchdown. That’s right…every touchdown gets you an extra 10% off your purchase. This is uncapped and Ron (the owner) isn’t very happy about this sale. He’s tried to pull a fast one on us. Like bringing in a bunch of vintage sugar bowls and saying that’s the limit of the sale. He joked and said if OSU scores more than five touchdowns that he won’t open the store. He even tried to change the sign at the last minute and put 5% off.

    He fought us on this. But we won!

    So fear not vintage lovers and deal seekers. We’re sticking with the game plan. You will get 10% off for every touchdown. We hope the Buckeyes put up six touchdowns, trounce the Tide, roll into the National Championship, and everyone gets 60% off their purchase. Ron is hoping they win 3-0. Regardless, he’ll be glued to the TV Friday night. Will you?

    HELPFUL TIPS

    The experts at Vintage Depot offer these tips to help you have a successful yard sale:

    • 1) Prepare early. Start rounding up your trash (er, treasure) several days in advance.
    • 2) Be an early riser – set up 1 hour before the sale.
    • 3) Invest in tables – people do not like to bend down.
    • 4) Group items logically – e.g., kitchenware, sporting equipment.
    • 5) Price items right – 1/3 or less of the original cost is a good starting point.
    • 6) Make your sale items attractive – wipe them off for a fresh, clean look.
    • 7) Selling for an organization? Set up signage, let people know how to reach you post-event.
    • 8) Have fun!
