My leftovers are going...

May 16th, 2008 at 09:37 am

on craigslist. I have quite a few nice things left over from the garage sale last week. I had success with the desk, so I am going to list as much as possible today.

The advantage of craigslist over ebay, is that it takes much less time to list the items. I don't have to calculate shipping or find a box. And, I set the final price instead of waiting for the highest bidder.

I had such good response by listing all my garage sale items that I think there is a large amount of traffic on craigslist.

So, I think I'll make a goal. To sell at least $50 worth of items on craigslist. The listings are 45 days, so I will give them that much time. If they don't sell there, I'll set them up on ebay.

    I agree with you that Craigslist is much better. I recently sold a car using it with much less hassle. Smile

    Another thumbs up for Craigslist. We just found the exact lawnmower we wanted, used, for $35. We also were able to sell some vintage audio equipment from my mother's house that we didn't think anyone would ever want. Very cool!

    Loving craigs list! We have bee sitting on a vintage astroid arcade game for many years. We decided to sell it--needed space. Put it on craigs list and it sold in less than 3 days for $300. This is not an item we put on ebay due to shipping. I livein a rural community in WV and just could not imagine us finding the "right buyer" for this type of expensive item--in mint condition these "antiques" go for around $2000--ours was not mint---so was tickled that it sold and sold so quickly!
