    Sold items on craigslist

    I thought a thread showing things being sold for more than scrap value would be beneficial, feel free to show any items you may have bought or sold via craigslist . Iím mostly focused on selling but all pictures and storyís welcome , more pics the better . I started selling locally in a attempt to clean up around the place and offset lost income due to the current events . So here is the first thing I listed , I received over 20 inquiries the first day and it was sold within the week .

    1997 jet ski with dual tandem trailer , needs a little love . Has sat for a few years , did have to replace a tire on the passenger side . Believe it or not buying a new rim with tire was cheaper than buying just the tire and remounting it . Crazy right ?







    Also if anyone else is posting pics thru imgur , after you upload your pictures You can set your size to medium thumbnail and just add the direct link ( copy and paste ) using the picture frame in the task bar above your post using preview post . Gives you the same size pics Iím using .

    Buying ewaste and video games !

    I have given up pretty much on CL. At this point, I sell mostly on Facebook Marketplace, Right now I have 5 Jeep Rims up for sale.... I'm asking $300 at this time....

    Ive been getting a lot of bikes and mowers that I have been moving pretty well because I have a bike guy and a mower guy. Mowers are anywhere from $5-10/ea if they dont run, more if they do run (i dont do any troubleshooting other than put in gas, prime and try to start, dont have time).

    And bikes have been pretty good lately. Most store brand bikes that are repairable/decent and not rusted away Ill get around $10/bike. But Ive recently found some good brand bikes (cannondale, trek, specialized, etc) bike in the trash that Ive gotten $50-100+ from my bike guy for. All needed cleaned up and repaired some otherwise I would have sold myself, but again, dont really feel like messing with stuff most of the time and like to keep the items moving.

    Other thing that has been good recently, dehumidifiers. I found ~5 at the curb, and plugged all of them in and they all work. Sold most for $20/peice on letgo. I mostly use letgo since I am in a pretty populated area where theres a good amount of people on that app. CL I quit using to sell as its much quicker/easier on letgo. Facebook marketplace I have heard is all the rage recently but I dont have a facebook account.... might set on up just for marketplace selling though. My wife has a fb and has sold furniture on it before and it goes QUICK... might just have to give fb marketplace a try
