Cool New Tool If You Go To Yard Sales!

Hello online selling friends! Sorry I haven't posted for a while, it's been a busy spring for us. Anyway, I wanted to take a minute to tell you about a new tool that I heard about. The links below are not affiliate links, I just put them there for your convenience.

My friend Jen over at Molasses Creek Traders just told me about this great new tool if you use Craigslist to find local yard sales.  It's called Yard Sale Treasure Map and it's free! It maps out the yard sales in your local area based on the posts on Craigslist.  If you're in a big city it's a great way to narrow down the sales in your area. Here's how it works:

You just input your address and use the drop-down box to decide your maximum distance then chose the day for which you'd like to map out the sales.

Boom! You have a marked map of your local sales!  It worked great for me but I did read of some glitches when I was reviewing the comments on their site.

Yard sale season is just starting here in PA, so I plan to use this tomorrow to help me find my local sales.

Happy Selling,
