My wife and I decided to move from our fairly large four bedroom house to a smaller apartment, the grandchildren had grown up and their visits to our home were less frequent. Clearly we would need a yard sale, it’s amazing just how much stuff you collect over the years. But how to advertise it, then I remembered seeing an advert for corona neon beer signs and a web site where you could design you own sign. We thought it would be great to advertise our sale with a neon sign, giving us twenty-four hours coverage. Although not that expensive to buy we decided it would be best if the sign could be reused by other people who also wanted a yard sale, so the wording had to be non-specific – no telephone number etc. In the end we decided on a simple basic sign, as follows: ‘Yard sale This Weekend’ We connected it to the power supply and put the sign on our lawn first thing Monday morning. The sale was a great success with many buyers telling us that they had come after seeing the neon sign advertising our sale.
