Yard sale shopping is just a click away

READ MORE: Yard sale shopping is just a click away
Saturday yard sale shopping is a routine way to find a good bargain, and there is a website that can save you some of the headache. You can buy or sell just about anything on Gloria Anderson, website founder said, “Everybody has that item that they bought and they thought they were going to use it. Then they got it home, and they realize they don't like it and they're not going to use it." With over two million hits and 60,000 active members, locals are quickly catching on to From a $1 t-shirt to an SUV for $10,000, you can find just about anything. Shellie Harrell, a website shopper said, "I’ve done 100% of my holiday shopping on this website. I've bought everything from toys to clothes, to purses, to jackets, shoes. Everything you can possibly think of that I have bought, I buy on the site.” You don't have to pay taxes on your website purchases. Users say they like this site better than Craigslist or E-bay, because it's user-friendly, negotiable, and safe. Membership costs eight dollars a month, or, you can put a sticker on your car, and join for free! If you still want to go to mom and pop's yard sale to check out the items for yourself, you can do that too. The site posts actual yard sales going on around town. You can even map out all the yard sales you plan on hitting ahead of time." It's not all about buying, you can make quite a bit of cash too. And isn't all about online shopping. Members gather at the empty Bruce Cavanaugh Auto Mart parking lot at 6321 Market Street to exchange prearranged sales. They meet every Tuesday from 5:00 to 6:30.

I've been a member for a couple years now. Not only have I found a lot of great bargains, I have sold a lot of stuff on there. I've also made some wonderful friends from the site. Happy shopping and selling!

Wilmington Yard Sales

I've not had good luck with selling my furniture on WYS. I've only had 2 requests but no sale in the last 2mos. I relist every 3wks but no bites. I list it on Craig's list & I've had many emails but not a sale yet. The furniture is in excellent condition & I'm keeping the price low. I get more excited by going to the yardsale then shopping online.

Great deals on WYS

Buy or sell one item on and you will find yourself on it all the time - just can't give it up!
