Listia: A Fun Swap Site
So in my hours of misery, there is a light of fun. Listia is a great spot to clean out the closet, clear out some old books and a few odds and ends. It works with a point system instead of all cash like other auction websites. You get a few points when you join, points when you post listings, points for bidding, points for commenting etc. You can even get points for watching videos.
And I have received a few gems in return for some unwanted items, such as a couple of nice blouses, kitchen items and some garden cuttings to grow over the winter. A few things I have had to pay for shipping (that is reasonable) and a few things have had free shipping, a nice option. Like Ebay, be sure to be clear on your posts, provide plenty of information and if you are bidding, read carefully and ask questions.
Now, if you have something of value, Ebay or Craigslist may be the better option, but some of the items I had on Ebay for a while went pretty quickly on Listia so I was able to clear out some stale inventory.
