    The Fairy Tale Begins and Reality Emerges

    Once upon a time, there was a garage sale, an absolutely, positively marvelous garage sale. It was the best garage sale you can picture.

    The seller sold big and little items, old and new items, and everything in between. The buyer was very happy to buy the seller's treasures.

    Best of all, the seller made more money than the seller ever thought possible. Sound like a fairy tale? It is not, or at least it does not have to be.

    It is and can be reality for you, as the seller at your garage sale, if you follow the advice in this book. What do you have to lose? Nothing, plain and simple.

    If "Once Upon a Garage Sale... " does not show you how to make more money at your garage sale than you paid for this book, email the publisher for a full refund.
