What should I include in the title of my listing?

When titling a listing, be brief yet descriptive, remembering that the title may be the only thing that gets looked at.

How should I price my items?

Keep in mind that this is a yardsale site, so price your items much like you would at an actual yardsale … and of course, yardsales and bartering go hand in hand, so always leave a little wiggle room just to keep things interesting.

How do I communicate with a seller or buyer?

The purpose of the site is to connect local sellers with local buyers. Once the connection has been made, it is up to the individuals to communicate via personal email and/or phone.

Does the site handle payment of goods?

Payment of goods must be coordinated between the buyer and seller, and is not the responsibility of this website.

What should I do if I have a complaint about a buyer or seller?

Please see Register Complaint.

Why do you need my personal information in order for me to register on the site?

The use of this site only requires personal information necessary for day-to-day account usage and maintenance. Any additional information provided will be used only for site statistics and improvement and will never be sold to outside parties. Please see Privacy Policy.

What’s the most important thing to remember when using this site?

Have fun, be courteous, and find lots of cool stuff!

How long will my item be listed on the site?

Your item will stay listed for 30 days and then become deactivated. You can choose to reactivate the item within 60 days, which will re-post it publicly for another 30-day cycle. If the item is not reactivated within 60 days it will be completely removed from the site.

While we are happy to provide safety tips (see below), we are not responsible for the safety of those who choose to utilize this website. Having yardsales and selling yardsale-type stuff can be a lot of fun and very useful, but staying safe while you do it is most important.
Tips for safe local selling:
  • Be extremely cautious selling small items of high value. Items such as jewelry, one-of-a-kind trading cards, etc. should probably be saved for more impersonal sites such as eBay. If you wouldn’t display it while hanging out on your front lawn at a yardsale, you might not want to sell it on this site. You are at your own risk when you list these types of items—you don’t want to attract anyone with malicious intent to your address by publically advertising small items of high value. Please be extra careful!
  • Consider meeting the buyer at a grocery store or other public location, particularly when items are easily portable (a box of clothes, microwave, bedding, even small furniture and bikes, etc.). While a great tip for anyone, this might be especially useful for those who live alone. Being able to meet up easily at a public location is the beauty of this very local service.
  • Be smart and follow your gut. Pay attention when you are communicating (via phone, email, etc.) with a buyer or seller. If something doesn’t seem right, end communication right away. Please report any individuals who seem suspicious or are using the site inappropriately. Follow your intuition and play it safe!
