I have done rummage sales mainly to get rid of stuff. I only price large items. Then I set up a table that might be “Fill a bag for x dollars”. I found clothes doesn’t seem to sell very well. Items that I do put a tag on are sold really cheap because my goal is to get rid of things! By really cheap I mean generally under $5. Even then people will try to bargain— I am very amiable to what they offer(keeping my goal of getting rid of it forefront)

And, I offer a refund if an item doesn’t work. I had a Rubbermaid tub of Christmas lights— probably 15 sets, I wanted $5 for (not including the tub). The woman offered me $2. I refused. She reluctantly bought them for $5 after I assured her she could return any that didn’t work. I had tested them all so I knew they worked. My sister was appalled and told me a few choice words she would have said . I am pretty easy going
