  • ALL items posted must have a price listed and a picture of the actual item. We do not allow stock photos to avoid any misrepresentation of the condition of an item. We do this to protect YOU.
  • We cannot control whom a seller chooses to sell to. However, we do ask that all sellers try to be fair in their decisions. It is up to a seller to decide how long they will wait on a buyer to respond (we recommend at least a few hours, since everyone has different work schedules).
  • Do not skip over buyers. If all options have be covered in trying to contact and make sale arrangement with a buyer have been exhausted, then you can move on to the next buyer.
  • Once a buyer has been established, please post “PPU” and a pick up date on your item immediately. (ex. PPU month/date)
  • Do not delete the item until it has been picked up (in case there are any issues). Once it has been picked up, delete the item or comment “SOLD” on the item and tag an admin to delete it for you.
  • If you are interested in an item, please TAG the seller with a comment stating "I want this" on the items photo, and then PM them immediately to set up a transaction. Just commenting “interested” on a post does not guarantee that you will get it.
  • If you can not make it to a meeting, you are required to call/text/PM the other person as soon as possible to notify them. We DO NOT TOLERATE NO CALL/NO SHOW'S on this page. You will be banned, pending review by the admins.
