    Signs.....signs and more signs is the key! Good size and very clear readable signs. Clean marking with date, time (8 to 2) with directions. Make sure you have plenty of signs so that people can find you easily! Make sure all your items are clearly marked...ALL items. People hate to keep asking....."HOW MUCH?" I know if not marked they would just leave the item rather than ask the price!
