A few weeks ago I saw a friend selling an item on a “garage sale” group in another state. I saw this and thought “What a clever way to buy/sell in your own neighborhood without attracting people from too far outside of the area” (ie: Craigslist, eBay). I also don’t like buying and selling on Craigslist because I just don’t know who is coming to meet me or, an even scarier proposition, COMING TO MY HOUSE! For furniture I admit that I did it, ONCE. I was terrified and made sure to have the dresser BY the door, ready to be taken out and my husband was there.
I decided to start a Central Bucks “garage sale group” on Facebook. It has attracted a good amount of readers/sellers. In less than two weeks there are already 163 fans and I have made my first sale AND two purchases! I also started a Montgomery County group since MontCo is so close.
I really was hoping to get rid of all the kid stuff my kids are outgrowing but I am also thrilled about finding stuff for them too. I think I need to set a limit of one in one out.
Does 12 books in one sale (out) mean I can get 12 items (in) now??
My finds so far were a book I posted that I was looking for (Everybody Poops) and a chair booster seat called “Kaboost.”
Paid: $12 for both
