Five Sites That Are Better Than Craigslist

Five Sites That Are Better Than Craigslist

If Craigslist is your go-to online source for amazing furniture deals and second-hand steals, there’s a good chance you are going to love these sites even more. They are game changers in the world of online shopping for secondhand home furnishings and decor. I love skimming Craigslist for bargains as much as the next person, but I am not a fan of having to communicate with complete strangers and dealing with sketchy buyers and sellers. Thankfully, I have discovered five new sites that will provide the same online shopping experience as Craigslist, but without all of the headaches and hassles.

Move Loot – A one stop shop for buyer and sellers. Move Loot manages the entire process from start to finish. If you want to sell an item, Move Loot will pick it up from your house, photograph it and create/manage the listing for you. After your item sells, Move Loot delivers it to the buyer. Move Loot is currently available in select states, but expanding quickly.

Chairish – A national marketplace full of vintage design pieces. For buyers, it provides a trustworthy environment, access to hard-to-find goods and better pricing than most antique shops. Looking to sell? It’s a great lace to share your goods with prospective buyers across the country.

Furnishly – Exclusively secondhand furniture items that are specific to your area.

Krrb – Pronounced “curb,” this site connects buyers and sellers from around the world. Krrb features vintage treasures, refurnished and secondhand, local goods (art, handmade, etc), estate sales, garage sales, flea markets, housing for sale or rent and local services, jobs, classes & events.

AptDeco – A simple and reliable way to buy/sell great quality home furnishings & accessories in your city without all of the back end coordinating. They handle all transactions and shipping in their marketplace. AptDeco is currently available in NYC, Boston, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia areas only, but will be expanding to other cities soon.
