What other sites besides Craigslist are good to sell stuff locally?

I'm in desperate need of cash fast and I have listed stuff on Craigslist, but no one's responding. I know I could sell them on ebay, but paypal will hold the money for three weeks(because I don't sell very often is what they told me) Times are bad and I have to pay bills now!
Anyway, are there other good sites where you can list locally?

  • Paypal has never held my money on Ebay, are you sure that's the case? They can't do that, it's your money.

  • I agree with pp, try FB. I have a friend that buys expensive clothes for her kids. Then posts them on FB when they grow out of them.
