Craigslist is one of my favorite sites to find sales and post my own. It was started in 1995 by Craig Newmark for use in the San Francisco Bay Area. By 2007, Craigslist had established itself in approximately 450 cities in 50 countries. Its sole source of revenue is paid job ads and serves over nine billion page views per month. Garage sales, estate sales, and yard sale ads are free!
I have never sold much on eBay, more for my focus on using other venues than the fact that a tidy profit can’t be had. The key to making money, I would venture to say, is in what something is bought for, not the price you sell it at. A good guide for buying the right things to sell is The eBay Seller’s Guide to Finding Profitable Hidden Bargains at Garage Sales.
