Hosting a Lemonade Stand Within a Yard Sale

By everydayyardsale Jun 29, 2013 405 Words
Think Summer think Yard Sale. Think Yard Sale Think Lemonade. Hosting a lemonade stand within a yard sale is great fun for kids. This will be their first step towards business administration, book keeping and finance handling. Here are a few tips that will come handy when hosting a lemonade stand.

Pick up sugar and lemons from local supermarkets. For getting a good deal check the local supermarket.

For lemonade stand accessories visit the dollar store. Here you will find a wide myriad of fun table clothes, pitchers, hand-held citrus juicers, poster board and cups. Most of the items can be reused, therefore, store them safely.

Choose fresh lemons over flavored powder mix. These days, people are more concerned about their health and prefer organic food over the flavored and artificial ones. Apart from that lemons are more budget friendly than a container of flavored lemonade powder.

Have the cups of fresh lemonade pre-poured. However, keep them covered with a tissue or a coaster. It will be easier on those running the stand because the customers need not be kept waiting.

Always offer a healthy alternative. Many people shy away from the loads of calories added to the homemade lemonade. For them you can always keep the sugar-free lemonades in a box of ice.

Do not forget to keep a garbage bin near your lemonade stand. Also keep a sign that says the price per cup.

Lemonade Recipes

Here is a lemonade recipe for your garage/yard sale.

Simple Lemon Juice


1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup lemon juice
3 to 4 cups cold water


Make simple syrup by heating the sugar and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.

While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.

Add the juice and the sugar water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.

Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
