  • Just put it in your local newspaper. That's where the pro-yardsalers look anyhow.

  • I never had to put my #, had them respond to the e-mail, that doesn't show your e-mail address. Just looked an most of them don't have a phone #.

  • Don't have to put your phone number on craigs list to run ad for garage sale. You can try your local online newspaper, if you want. GL

  • There's a category under for sale that is garage sale. See if you can put it there without a phone number.

  • Just advertise it and leave your number out. I get a bunch of spam too and I hate it. I just ignore it and delete it. Put it in the local paper. You would probably have better luck there. It doesn't cost much.

  • Use the "for sale" category... Leave out your #
