Have you ever tried to buy or sell your items online? Maybe you’ve tried Craigslist or your online neighborhood group?
In 2012 Tami Zuckerman, a former elementary teacher, was frustrated using other sites for buying and selling online. With her husband, a programmer, the two of them created VarageSale – for a more user friendly experience.
Through VarageSale you can buy and sell new and gently used items within your local community. So far, it’s available in 42 states and has millions of users. VarageSale is free to use and you can access it online at www.varagesale.com, or on iOS and Android.
Varage sale is different from other existing classifieds sites or social networks because you can browse member profiles to see real names and photos which have been vetted by local admins and moderators, and through location technology you can sort your feed based on items closest to you. Another great perk is you get to know your neighbors. Read more about customizing your news feed.
More perks and goodies! For a limited time new VarageSale sign-ups who join a newly launched community will earn $5 for every item they list for sale (up to 25 items). And, every item listed for sale (new or existing users) is also an entry into a state-wide contest to win a family vacation (up to 5 people) to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Users must join using one of the links below to qualify. Users that do qualify will be contacted through VarageSale private message and paid via PayPal.

I thought I’d give it a try. I downloaded the app on the my iphone. It was pretty easy to figure out. I just listed a crock pot.
I joined a few local communities. Then, I easily posted our crock pot.

Update 2/5/16 – I posted another item. I’m selling an almost full perfume bottle of Dolce & Gabbana The One Eau de Parfum. Nothing is wrong with it. It’s just not my favorite.
I wrote this post while participating in a campaign for VarageSale and received a promotional item, payment, and/or sample to thank me for taking the time to participate.
