I have an addiction. There, I said it. About a year ago I joined a social media garage sale page and I’ve never looked back. I can’t even count how many groups I am in now, and most days my entire newsfeed is filled with people hocking their used
junk treasures. I have contemplated time and again removing myself from the groups and eliminating the temptation to buy and sell. But I just can’t do it. How could I miss that half used bottle of designer shampoo?! Plus the drama! Oh the drama that unfolds. . .
And I have mostly stayed because, well…what’s the alternative? Well…I found one. VarageSale.
VarageSale is an online community of buyers and sellers that are local to where you live. It was started by a Mom who was fed up with the unfriendly Facebook pages and Craigslist classifieds and wanted something better. So she created it.
And it’s better ya’ll, so much better.
The user interface and design is slick and intuitive. It’s super easy to post things for sale with prices and pictures, and you can customize exactly what you want to see in your feed. Don’t have a need for a mirror made out of shells? (That’s a real thing people!) Then exclude it from your feed and you will never know it even existed. Want to hone in on baby clothes? Then configure it so you will only see baby clothes.
Plus, no commenting which means no drama around “Wants” or “Interested” or “Want with Questions.” And no supreme dissapointment when you think you have finally scored an awesome item only to find out it was Crossposted and someone else beat you to it.
Some other cool things VarageSale does that sets it apart:
- You can buy items at a fraction of the retail price (some up to 90% off!)
- It allows you to shop with confidence by browsing member profiles to see real names and photos which have been vetted by local admins and moderators.
- The app uses location technology to sort the news feed based on what’s closest to you — no matter where you live in up to 42 states.
- It’s completely FREE to use, and available on iOS, Android and online at www.varagesale.com
