How To Make a Clothes Rack for a Garage Sale: Mix and Match

What you need

1 “pole”: Use what you have and get creative. Use a broom, scrap wood, a shovel, string, a PVC pipe—the pole possibilities are endless.

2 bases: You can mix and match bases, as long as they’re similar in height.

  • Cabinets
  • Bookshelves
  • Ladders
  • Lamps
  • Barstools

Whatever you choose for your bases, make sure they’re stable. For more wobbly items, use rocks or bricks to ground them.

Pro-Tip: Use items you’re selling for storage.

There’s no need to drag out a folding table if you’re already selling furniture. Make the most of every item. Desks, tables and chairs can all be used to display smaller items. Here are some ideas:

  • Hang jewelry on the side of chairs or mirrors.
  • Open chest and desk drawers and put smaller for-sale items inside.
  • Bookshelves can house cake stands, shoes, blankets, and of course—books.

Here’s to an organized and successful garage sale!
