Do you think there should be a "For Sale" place here on CM?

Like a mini ebay? So we could buy & sell our kids outgrown clothes, buy some & get rid of toys too. Maybe even make a couple of bucks too? Just a thought since most all of us have tons of outgrown kids clothes & toys. Yay or Nay?

  • Some groups have swap and trade sections.

    I'd be worried about giving out private info as well. There's a lot of crazies here.

  • i don't think it's safe to give out your address to strangers

  • I am sure it would cost money, but what would be wonderful if we had a place to donate gentle worn clothes to some moms on here that need it, maybe we could send it and everyone pay like $5 bucks to cover the shipping, IDK do you think it would be possible to start a buy and sell group?

  • Maybe they have something like this in the groups? I usually find groups in my town on Facebook for buying and selling

  • I think it's a good idea, if there could be a way to screen by distance so you don't find exactly the big item you want on the other side of the country. I've found a lot of things I needed, and given unwanted stuff away, locally through Freecycle.

  • There is a few groups already that are for buying and selling but most of them are not active what so ever.

  • Butterfly, maybe in order to sell or buy you would need to use another username so no one would know who you were.
