I have been wanting to have a garage sale for awhile. But it’s a little tricky when you don’t actually have a garage. We’ve discussed having the sale at a family members house. But the transportation of all the items starts getting a little overwhelming. Not to mention hosting the actual garage sale. Lucky for me, and you, I found a better way with VarageSale.
VarageSale lets you sell (and buy) new and gently used items with your local community. (Just like a garage sale.) But it’s all online. It’s a virtual garage sale. All you have to do is snap pictures of your items and add them to your profile. Ta-da! You sign up through Facebook which helps the community be built around trust and real identities. The site was actually founded by a former elementary teacher, Tami Zuckerman.
If you’re looking for an easy way to earn some extra cash for the holidays, this would be a great way to do it! I even listed some of my handmade scarves and other items from my shop.
Of course you can also do some shopping on the app (or website). Because who doesn’t like a good deal?! Buy items at a fraction of the retail price and stock up for next season. And you can shop with confidence by browsing member profiles to see real names and photos which have been vetted by local admins and moderators. Plus it’s a fun way to meet people in your area!
VarageSale is community based with hundreds of local communities across 42 states, and millions of users. The app uses location technology to sort the news feed based on what’s closest to you. The more people posting and shopping within a community, the more local your experience will be.
And they just launched 7 new communities in DFW:
Arlington & Grand Prairie – http://m.varagesale.com/m/VpzqrBymTn
Carrollton & Farmers Branch – http://m.varagesale.com/m/WyYinD0eTn
Dallas Inner Loop – http://m.varagesale.com/m/hqS4xcqmTn
Duncanville/DeSoto/Lancaster – http://m.varagesale.com/m/vLcp7UumTn

Mesquite & East Dallas – http://m.varagesale.com/m/adGCMthlTn

Another nifty and helpful trick for users? You can customize your news feed so that only the categories and items you care about, show up. Here’s how!
Want to really earn some extra cash for the holidays? New sign-ups who join a newly launched community (those 7 new Dallas/Fort Worth communities I’m looking at you) will earn $5 for every item they list for sale (up to 25 items). That’s potentially $125 up for grabs!
Super Seller cash offer available to new VarageSale signs-ups only, and only eligible in new communities. Limited to first 100 new sign-ups per community.
And if all of that wasn’t enough, every item listed for sale is also an entry into a state-wide contest to win a family vacation (up to 5 people) to the most magical place on earth in Orlando, Florida (Disney World). Disney contest is available to new and existing VarageSale users and is state-wide.
What are you waiting for? Starting finding those local deals and earn some extra cash. VarageSale is free to use, and available on iOS, Android and online at www.varagesale.com
