Tips to Recycle the Garage-Sale Way Planning and running a family garage sale can be more than a moneymaking venture for you and your kids. Dollars might be an incentive for parting with outgrown toys, books and clothes, but your kids also will be reaping the benefits of hands-on experience in marketing, merchandising and sales. Here are some tips to recycle and turn your castoffs to treasures the garage-sale way: Get Ready: --Set aside time before the sale to help your kids clear the clutter and sort through books, toys, DVDs and clothes. Wash items that are soiled, and put jackets, shirts and blouses on hangers to show off the merchandise. People don’t like to dig in piles of stuff. If a toy has small parts, corral the pieces, put them in a small bag and tape the bag to the toy. --Put price stickers on items and price to sell. --Although you might advertise the sale in the newspaper and on websites like craigslist, your kids can make their own fliers to distribute to neighbors to publicize the items they are selling.

Eye-Catchers: --Make your sale “an experience” with small touches. Cover tables with bright fabric, hang a mirror near clothing and hats, and play music on a DVD player. If your garden is in full bloom, fill jars with flowers and sell by the stem. --Draw in shoppers with a big poster with “Extraordinary Kids Stuff” printed in large letters in the kids’ department. --Set out a table or box of “free stuff.” You’ll be surprised to see what people will take for free! --By far, snacks are a super draw. Sell coffee and cold beverages. And who can refuse buying a cookie or sweet roll while strolling around your sale? Selling: --Find a cash box and be sure someone is always in charge of it throughout the day. --Be prepared to bargain, especially for bikes, scooters and skates. --At the end of the sale, gather leftover items in good condition, remove the stickers and donate to a nonprofit organization. Extra Idea: One of a few favorite tips posted on my Donna’s Day Facebook page included setting up a “Man’s Table” filled with tools and gadgets and placed strategically by the street. The successful idea came from the time the writer’s husband dug through his shed and set out boxes of miscellaneous stuff at $1 per box. “Men are happy to stay longer and don’t bother their female partners while they are shopping,” she wrote. Plus, “It also got rid of lots of clutter from the shed!” •••

By Samantha Weaver

• It was 20th-century U.S. Attorney General and Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson who made the following sage observation: “The price of freedom of religion or of speech or of the press is that we must put up with, and even pay for, a good deal of rubbish.” • It’s common knowledge that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is regularly ranked as one of the world’s wealthiest people, but you might not realize that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is the world’s wealthiest

• If you’re planning a trip to Iowa anytime soon, you might want to schedule a stop in the town of Walcott. There you can visit the Iowa 80 Truckstop, the world’s largest. With a whopping 220 acres, the truck stop is 1.5 times the size of Disneyland. • In a traditional Hungarian wedding ceremony, the bride wears a headdress made of woven wheat, thought to help ensure the couple’s fertility. • Historians say that famed German composer Ludwig van Beethoven was quite particular about his coffee. It is claimed that he counted out exactly 60 coffee beans for each cup that he drank. • The longest mountain range on Earth is located underwater -- in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, to be specific. It’s nearly 25,000 miles long, and the only part of it that’s above water is the nation of Iceland. © 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Cocktail Watch

Q: I have an Ernest Borel wristwatch with a spiral design movement. It is from the 1940s or earlier. Is it worth anything as far as selling it is concerned? -- Ellen, Sun City, Ariz. A: The Ernest Borel watch company was founded in 1859. Some of the more interesting watches manufactured by Borel were the work of Adamir Debrot, a designer who was responsible for many of its innovative technical solutions and original time pieces throughout the 1940s, '50s and '60s. I suspect that the watch you have is one of Debrot's designs. I also think the watch you have is what was marketed as a "Cocktail Watch," which featured a kaleidoscope dial. That particular dial featured five different patterns, namely flower, sun, arrows, star and wheel. The "Cocktail" was launched in 1953 and soon became one of the most popular designs marketed by the Ernest Borel company. As with most collections, the value of a vintage watch depends on three major factors: rarity, condition and desirability. I contacted several dealers who specialize in vintage watches, and they seem to agree that your watch would retail in the $150 to $350 range. ••• Q: I have a player piano roll cabinet that has been in my family home for more than half a century. How much do you think it's worth? -- Martha, Ephrata, Pa. A: Your question is much like asking how much a car is worth. If it is a 1985 Yugo, not so much. On the other hand, if it is a 1934 Packard Roadster, break out the champagne and celebrate your good fortune. Incidentally, the running joke about the Yugo went something like this: Why does a Yugo have a defroster on the rear window? To keep your hands warm while you push it. Getting back to your question, what is the condition of your cabinet? Is it made of cherry, oak or mahogany? What is its size, and does it have an interesting design? Most player piano cabinets seem to sell in the $75 to $150 range. ••• Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

• On Aug. 4, 1892, Andrew and Abby Borden are found hacked to death in their Fall River, Mass., home. Daughter Lizzie, later immortalized in a famous rhyme, was arrested and charged with the double homicide. Taken with her Christian persona, the all-male jury acquitted her. Today, the house where the Borden murders occurred is a bed and breakfast. • On Aug. 5, 1914, the world's first electric traffic signal is put into place on the corner of Euclid Avenue and East 105th Street in Cleveland. It consisted of four pairs of red and green lights that served as stop-go indicators, each mounted on a corner post. • On Aug. 6, 1928, Andy Warhol, one of the most influential artists of the latter part of the 20th century, is born in Pennsylvania. He took literally the advice of an art teacher who said he should paint the things he liked. He liked ordinary things, such as comic strips, canned soup and soft drinks, and so he painted them. • On Aug. 2, 1939, Wes Craven, the man responsible for terrorizing millions of moviegoers with his "Nightmare on Elm Street" series, is born in Cleveland. Craven began his directing career with 1972's "The Last House on the Left," a violent teen horror film. © 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.
