Buying & selling on Facebook, Craigslist, in-person sales, and more!

This is super topical for me since we're planning to move into our new house soon, but you may be interested if you're a serial redecorator, or just need some new pieces (or to clean out old pieces) in your current home!

This week on the Your Home Story podcast, Ashley and I are sharing what works well for both buying and selling secondhand home items direct from sellers (online or in-person). You can get some amazing pieces and deals!, but it takes work to find them. Plus, selling your used furniture, rugs, etc. can be a great way to get some extra cash to cover new purchases!

We talk about using Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace and buy/sell groups, garage sales, and more.

Here's one of my favorite Craiglist finds--this vintage dresser. It's been a dresser in our townhouse and a TV/media stand at our last house, and it's one of the few big pieces of furniture we kept when we moved last!


Another favorite is this vintage rug!

Also, in the episode I mentioned tips for shopping at estate sales; there's the link for you.
