Interesting things happen to me in the early morning hours on the Internet, and today is no exception. My friend, Tracy, posted a link on Facebook to a new auction site…one with a twist. This one, Listia.com, is a barter auction site that runs on credits rather than money. Her post said I’d get free credits to start out with if I got an account, and to please help her out because she had a ton of stuff to get rid of from her craft room.
I’ve seen said craft room, and she’s right – she’s got a TON of stuff – cool stuff.
Well, anyone who’s seen my office knows that I, too, have a ton of stuff I could unload. Mostly books. And computer stuff.
So, I signed up, and sure enough, I got 400 credits for doing so, an extra 50 credits for hooking it to my Facebook account, and another extra 50 credits for hooking it to my Twitter account. Nice.
Then, I got another 100 credits for listing my first auction (which you can see in the box to the right.) I have no need for this tripod any longer, since my Flip cam grew legs of its own and crawled mysteriously away sometime in the last few months. (I may possibly have left it somewhere in Atlanta last summer, too.)
So, I ask you – don’t you have stuff, perfectly good stuff, that you don’t need or use anymore? Wouldn’t it be grand to give it away to someone who really needs and wants it? There’s good karma in this, folks. Our stuff wants to be where it’s loved and valued, not gathering dust and being ignored.
Go on ahead and get 600 free credits and get started! You know you’ve got stuff to list.
