Garage sale sites on-line

Have you been caught up in the latest craze?
I know that I have been.
What is it you ask?

Garage sales on-line!

When I was looking to find the grandson a crib for our house someone suggested to me, why not check Facebook.
They have all kinds of garge sale sites.

Who knew?

Sure enough I found a couple of local sites to join.

Within days little man had his own crib!


That went so well I thought I would try my hand at selling something.

When I needed to sell my vintage stove I listed it that morning.



By that night I already had a buyer picking it up!

Since then I have bought a few more things on my favorite garage sale site.


I bought this family tree to sit in the entry way at the new house even before the deal was done.

I knew it would look wonderful there.


A few weeks ago I purchased a lovely, glass topped table for the sun room.


$20.00 dollars, what a deal!

The little mans high chair was also bought on a FB garage sale site.



My latest find was some curtains for the bedroom.
I needed something fast before we moved in.
A few clicks of the mouse and I was off to pick them up.


The lady even through in a brand new donut maker!


Total price, $8.00!

A few of the FB sites have quite a few rules to follow.
But mainly when you see an item you are interested in, you just type interested next to the picture. Then send them a personal message.

Most people message you right back to except your offer and arrange a time to pick up your item.

The first time I went to meet someone, we arranged to meet in the parking lot of a out of business restaurant.

We both laughed because it felt like some kind of shady deal exchanging money for a package.

Its fun to browse the sites even if I am not buying!

Last night I got out my donut maker to give it a try.


We had a bunch of bite sized donuts in no time!


(This is my pinterest site for a variety of great donut recipes!)


I have recently turned a few of my other friends onto these great garage sale sites.

I just hope they don't find the big bargain before I do!

Do you FB garage sale too?

  9. I usually check out sites like Kijiji here, and have bought a few things through that and even sold a load of wood through it. Very fast & convenient. Almost too convenient, and I try not to look at it unless I'm looking for something specific ;) You've found some great deals! I find everyone lists things at great prices just to get them out the door!

  11. Just catching up with you Liz. Your new home is looking lovely. I haven't shopped at FaceBook garage sales. It looks like you've had very good luck both buying and selling. I hope the weather clears up soon so you can get the rest of your things from the old house.
    Little man looks so cute in his new crib!
    Have a good weekend.

  12. Your donuts look delicious! I am the worst garage sale shopper ever. Worst thrift store shopper too. You found some pretty cool stuff that is useful as well.
