We’ve been trying to sell this headboard since October, and literally no one will come pick it up even though we’re giving it away for free. If you’re interested, hit us up.
Craigslist is the OG of selling things online. Unfortunately, New York doesn’t seem like a city that loves Craigslist. Donnie has had one good experience, but we have a lot of misses here.
Facebook Marketplace definitely seems like the new Craigslist. The ability to view people’s profiles and know they’re real adds an air of legitimacy to it. You can also chat through Messenger, which most people already have.
AptDeco makes buying and selling so easy, but you definitely have to have quality pieces to list here (and be in the New York area). We had great luck selling a bedroom rug but haven’t had as much movement on the headboard because it isn’t brand name. You also pay a 30% commission on sales, but it’s worth it for AptDeco to process credit cards for you and handle the shipping.
OfferUp was the sleeper hit for us. We haven’t sold any furniture, just little pieces, but the way they handle shipping is so seamless that it’s our new go-to. They take a 10% commission, but it’s totally worth it to be able to print a shipping label and just drop your box off at the post office.
Donnie has very strong feelings about eBay. Because we like to list items for sale on all the websites we possibly can and increase our chances of getting rid of things, we’re happy to leave eBay in the early 2000s.
