Are you tired of sites like Kijiji and Craigslist, trying to find deals or sell your items, only to have to deal with people that live on the other side of town? Well, then Varagesale is the answer! Varagesale is a Facebook application that you can use to sell or buy used items locally. The West Island area has its’ very own “virtual room” in the application, so you can be sure that buyers or sellers won’t be asking to meet you at the closest metro station!
The app is so easy to use, and one of the best things about it is that you can look at the Facebook profile of who you are dealing with. Kijiji and Craigslist is completely anonymous, as you simply communicate by email, but in Varagesale you can see the person’s profile. Often times you find you have mutual friends with the other person since it is a group created for just the West Island, therefore I am much more comfortable using Varagesale than any other online garage sale tool.
You can download Varagesale at www.varagesale.com and then just click on the “Join” button next to the West Island group name. Here’s a little tutorial to show you how the application works:
