The Golden Rule
We fully expect our members to be friendly, kind, truthful, and to treat others as they wish to be treated at all times.
How does this work?
Post a photo of the item you want to sell along with as much info as possible, such as: dimensions, how old, condition and price. When a member expresses interest such as "I want it" or "interested" you must give them a minimum of 12 hours to make mutually agreed upon arrangements. After 12 hours you can go to the next person in line that expressed interest on your post.
Asking the seller a question does not guarantee you a spot in line. If you are interested but have questions, make sure to include "interested" or "I want" in your comment to be guaranteed a spot in line.
Tagging a member does not put that member in line; an individual must post interest personally.
Only comment on items you are serious about buying in a timely manner.
Sending a personal message to the seller without commenting does not guarantee you a spot in line (sellers: selling to the person who sends a message without commenting will reflect badly on you and look as though you are not following the rules).
If you're confused on who's first, click here.
Do not offer a member a lower price for their item on their post. After you comment, send them a personal message with your offer.
Do not delete your sold items. Use the status button to mark your item as sold. Once marked sold, the item will self-delete in seven days. Why should you mark then sold rather than delete them? Here are a few reasons.
If you are not interested in purchasing an item, do not comment.
How many items can I have up at a time?
There’s no limit, sell as much as you want. All we ask is you follow these guidelines:
ONE PHOTO PER ITEM. You may use the comment section to provide alternate views of your item.
ONE CATEGORY PER ITEM. Select the best category for your item and only post it once.
ONE ITEM PER PHOTO unless being sold as a "lot" you should only have one item in each photo.
If you have your item listed on another site, note in the description the item is "CROSS POSTED.”
An explanation for this can be found here.
Awesome, I see she is selling something I have too; can I just make a comment on her post that I have one to sell too?
No, making your own personal post is the right thing to do (this also applies to ISO post).
If I offer more than the member that is ahead of me in line, can the seller skip her and sell it to me? I really want that!
No, regardless, we use the “first/next in line” system.
I need to sell this item NOW! How do I do that?
Call it a FLASH SALE and sell it to the first person that can get the money to you.
Can I sell a car seat?
As long as it has not been in an accident and it is not expired. When listing a car seat or infant carrier, you must include the manufacturer, model number and expiration date. Buyers, buy at your own risk. We strongly recommend you check out our tips for purchasing a used car seat.
What about Home Businesses?
Yall can now post to the Small Business Directory! For more details check out our Small Business Directory Guidelines.
Can I post about a fundraiser?
Absolutely! Just make sure to follow our fundraiser guidelines.

This community was founded in November 2012 by Nancy Easter Alexis Martinez as a buy/sell group on Facebook. As the Facebook group grew, Nancy realized she needed help maintaining it.
In June 2013, she added Stephanie March Edler, Jessica Oliva Jones, Stephanie Shaver, and Tiffany Markey Truxillo as admins.
In October of 2013, Jessica Oliva Jones orchestrated the groups move from Facebook to VarageSale.
This community has been happily swapping on VarageSale since October 28, 2013.
