    Re: on sale

    "On sale" suggests a discounted price.
    "For sale" simply announces the availability of the item, for a price.

    "I have some potatoes for sale. Would you like to buy some?"
    "How much?"
    "Well, they are regularly 50 cents a kilo, but this week only, they are on sale for 45 cents."
