I'm not sure if this is classed as clever, but I definitely buy more from people who have divided things in to sizes, and have brought or hired a rail so you can flick through easily. I rarely buy stuff when there's just a big pile or box of clothes to rummage through.
Could you take a block or box to arrange things on in 2 tiers on the table so everything's nice and visible? Too cluttered a table would put me off as a buyer too, you want to glance at the table and be able to see everything.

(Sorry if that's not what you were after!)

I'd price them at whatever you're happy to accept-be expected to haggle.

Make sure everything is cleaned/ironed so it looks in the best condition possible.

Make sure any toys and equipment is as clean as possible.

Bright coloured tablecloth if possible-a length of fabric from a haberdashery is fine.

Take change with you and plastic bags.

Be approachable and say hello/weather talk to any prospective customers.

Encourage picking up of items to look at.

If you can get a rail for any clothes I'd use a rail.

Cardboard boxes for books/very small toys or sets of things. So a box of books for example-write the price on the box. A collection of a play set/garage/train track all in a small box each.

Put the tall things at the back of the table and the smaller at the front.
