      4-H Club gears up for the Payette County Fair
  The Sunnyside 4-H Club of New Plymouth is geared up for the Payette County Fair. The club, which has been
active in Payette County for more than 30 years, has 4-H members aged 5 to 16. The youngest member, Ty
Everson a 4-H Cloverbud, will be showing his bunny at the Fair.
  The other club member projects include horses and market swine. The Sunnyside members meet year round,
using the winter months to complete their 4-H Demonstrations and learn about their 4-H projects.
  Beginning in May, the youth with horse projects begin meeting at the Payette County Fairgrounds once a week
to practice with their horses. Sunnyside 4-H Club is particularly concerned with riding safety and requires all horse

have learned many of the “tricks of the trade”.
1. Start with cleaning closets, rummaging through junk drawers,
gathering outgrown stuff in the kids’ rooms, etc., etc. First thing
you know you have enough STUFF to have a yard sale. You
will want to offer only clean items that still have plenty of wear
potential. Stuff rags in your own “cleaning rags” bag! Then…
2. Choose your day or weekend carefully. The day the State
Fair is not a good day. A good day for a sale in New Plymouth
however, is the time of the County Fair. Then..
3. Place an ad in the newspaper a week or two before the sale,
so people from miles around can plan ahead to attend your sale.
‘Word of mouth’ won’t do. Invite other family members or friends
to join you and bring their stuff. The bigger the sale, the more
attractive and the more fun: Extra hands! Extra eyes! Then…
4. Price everything reasonably and don’t reduce any price on

watching people walk through your sale and leave without buying
anything. (Many people simply will not ask the price even on
items they may really want to buy.)
5. Signs: Signs with clear pointing arrows work best. Potential
customers will go right by signs with addresses that cannot be
read without binoculars, or they may stop.. get out of the car..
scratch their heads.. get back in the car.. shrug and drive on.
6. Have a year’s worth of plastic bags on hands. Offer one to
each customer. Those who need one will appreciate it. Those
who don’t will appreciate the courtesy. Also have newspaper or
something appropriate to wrap glassware or other fragile items.
Provide an extra chair for the elderly, while other family members
shop or for customers to try on shoes, boots, etc.
7. Wear something with big pockets: change in one, bills in the
other. A locked metal till can disappear in an instant. You are
honest. Others may be tempted.
8. Enjoy yourself. These are neighbors and friends. A cheerful
face and a welcoming smile will encourage customers to take
their time and really look at the items you’re offering. I have been
to sales where the lady or man having the sale said absolutely
nothing to anyone... just stated the amount due at the ‘pay up’
table. So smile, smile, smile! Then…
9. The second day sale: You’re getting weary-- slash prices.
Have a half-price table, or a 25-cent-table, another table for only
50-cent items. Even put out a ‘Freebie Box’. Then…
10. Promptly take down your signs when the sale is over. Then…
count your bucks and go to the bank!
