The summer months are the best for hitting up Tag Sales, I always called them Yard sales.

My mom got me hooked on tag sales. She was super at haggling prices, which is part of the fun of a tag sale, and also picking up some really neat stuff.

If you are like me you will most likely walk away with some goodies!

This event that is coming up has to be the biggest citywide tag sale event of the summer coming up on August 13th, it is probably too late to register to have your tag sale included, but you can always call the town hall specifically the Town Clerk's Office at Town Hall and see if they will include you.

This event will be rain or shine, wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and bring your shopping bags so you can load up on all the good things going up for sale.

Here are some ways to get the best deals.

Plan your sales, since there is a map above, you can hit a bunch in one area and then go to another which will save you time and gas.

Look Poor. Don’t show up to a garage sale like a bum, but don't look totally unkempt and disheveled, Many sellers will not budge on price if you look like you can afford more than what they’re asking.

Make a point to bring small bills so you won’t have to feel awkward presenting a $50 when you just haggled to get the price down to $5.

Form a Relationship. Find the seller and strike up a conversation. Ask him or her about the pieces you’re interested in, and where and when they were acquired. Forming a humanizing connection can make acquiring a deal easier.

Be Willing to Walk Away. If the seller is asking $50 for an item, don’t offer $5. Being unrealistic will just sour the whole deal. Instead, offer a reasonable amount, such as $30, and negotiate from there. If the seller still won’t budge, start putting things back this may cause him or her to reconsider. If not, walk away.

Good Luck and Happy Tag Sales to you!
