Spring will be here before you know it. You know what that means? Spring cleaning. This year, when you clean out your closet, clear out the garage or tool shed, or, decide to make room for new furniture by getting rid of the old, there's lots of different places you could try and sell your items. You could have a garage sale or post them to a site like Craigslist or eBay, but there are some newer options to try.
Conversely, if you're in the market for new, second-hand items like furniture or some one-of-a-kind antiques, a new car, desks, clothes, dressers, and more, you don't have to head down to the local flea market. We've found some new apps that can bring the flea market to you.
Check out our list of new apps that let you buy and sell your items from your smartphone.
Trove Marketplace helps you buy and sell items within your own community, so you don't have to worry about calculating and figuring out shipping costs. However, certain items can be shipped, you'll just have to work that out with the buyer/seller.
Sellers rage from individuals to local vintage shops or second-hand stores and with the app's built in chat, you can arrange appointment times with them easily. When it comes times to make or receive a payment, you can use the app to accept credit, or take cash when you meet up to make the exchange.
When I looked for items using Trove Marketplace, I saw some pretty cool stuff. There were lots of couches, dressers, desks and chairs, but there were also unique items and antiques that any impulse buyer could have a field day with.
