MY GOOGLE SEARCH – SWAPPING SITES- THE FIRST 15 PAGES
Personally, besides http://www.listia.com (one-sided, but you use your points to get other things you can use- over 1200 transactions), I used http://www.swapstyle.com (oldest site worldwide for womens clothing, shoes, makeup, designer handbags, etc.), http://www.rehashclothes.com (most user-friendly site for womens clothing, shoes, makeup, handbags and books, and the site I still frequent), and http://www.dignswap.com (until it was hacked and it was never the same after that). For swapping designer handbags to the UK, I used http://www.myhandbagswap.com once (shipping is expensive). For swapping books (one-sided; you give out your books, and use points to get books for yourself), my favorite site is http://www.bookmooch.com (I’ve got over a 100 finished transactions on that site alone), and I also use http://www.paperbackswap.com (pretty good book site) and on occasion, http://www.titletrader.com (least used, least user-friendly as well). I didn’t really like http://www.barterquest.com as the people are really flaky (communication is very important) and I didn’t even do any transactions at all. I also tried http://www.craigslist.org and http://www.freecycle.org (one-sided, but you can also get free stuff too) for local swaps, but with the recent bad press about craigslist I’ve been hearing, don’t think that I will be using it for swapping anymore.
If you want to sell your stuff, http://www.ebay.com has become more expensive to use (between listing fees, and PayPal fees, it all adds up). I am now using http://www.bonanza.com, http://www.tradesy.com and http://www.etsy.com.
Hopefully you found this post very useful, as I highly believe in swapping as recycling is a big part of my everyday life.
