Anyone know of any good ways to sell all my unwanted stuff including f baby stuff, cloths, shoes etc. I’ve tried gumtree and eBay but besides the odd enquiry I haven’t had much luck. All my items are practically brand new and I’ve donated a lot and given presents but still have heaps taking up space.

Ask your question

  • My local buy swap sells on facebook and fb marketplace are full of baby stuff i have bought stuff from there myself



  • You could set up a stall at a local market, depending on how many items you have.



  • A friend of mine uses Ebay ( and they charge a small fee on what you sell ) and I have had success on Gumtree with miscellaneous items . What I found is items don’t get sold straight away and you do have to constantly monitor your ads. Eg I’ve sold heaps of my kids textbooks just before school starts whereas during the year is a bit slow or nothing if you know what I mean . Also make sure you highlight your items are new and take good pics because it will make a difference on the sale. Good luck :)



  • Gumtree or facebook pages are great



  • You can sell your stuff on Gumtree – that is pretty good. You can upload pictures so people can see what they are buying. If you have a local newspaper you can advertise in their for free. We have the Quokka here and its free and you can sell in there. Just make enquiries around and see where else. You can also try Ebay.



  • I like selling on Facebook & gumtree I’ve had 100% success rate



  • i’m happy with gumtree… its successful and free



  • everyone suggests facebook, but if you follow many people, then they don’t have much success, people not showing up etc. The best is probably a garage sale.



  • I use local buy swap and sell sites on Facebook, if you don’t want people coming to your house you can organise a location such as a car park.



  • There are various sites on facebook, they usually come under the heading of the suburbs – look at ‘groups’ on the left of the page. People also advertise their garage sales on facebook as well as there is no cost involved



  • you can try buy swap sell on facebook page if your on facebook. just be aware that people don’t always turn up or waste your time. I’m over facebook because of people not following the rules or asking for things for nothing. people can be selfish these days…but try that, for a month or so, if you feel its like ebay and gumtree, then donate your stuff or garage sale….maybe have a joint garage sale with a friend or families so it attracts more people when you have a lot to sale.

    its hard these days now trying to sale clothes compared to furnitures



  • Try your local buy sell swap Facebook pages. Usually goes pretty quick on there



  • Gumtree is the best way and it’s free. You can choose whether you want to be contacted by email, SMS or phone. Quick and easy, just take a few pics and add the price!



  • Sometimes there are secondhand markets that sell only baby items – may be worth investigating?



  • A garage sale or flea market stall might be the way to go?
