Since it's nearly stoop sale season, here's a guide for shoppers and sellers alike. It contains both useful pointers (make sure your pricing is consistent) and idiosyncratic advice. Prime example of the latter: "If you don't care about getting arrested, think about having your child sell mojitos or skinny margaritas. Then your family will make even MORE money, because people in the Slope love that kind of ironic shit." [FIPS]
