But I was trying to sell local and it’s not working!

Some guys say that saw sales tend to be seasonal. Might get a bunch of calls in October.
Yup, my C’list adds only attract the scammers and spammers.
Octoberish things pick up.
i’ve been downsizing and giving away a lot of stuff on around the house. I seem to attract a better quality of people on Facebook marketplace. Craigslist does have some weirdos
$80 good stuff!!
I'm guessing there's not a lot of demand for chainsaws in your part of Kansas, but scammers have no geographical boundaries (or any other kind, for that matter).

CL seems to be the place people go to get stuff for nothing. The only thing I ever had success selling on CL was my Vermeer 630A stump grinder. It had a 4 cylinder Wisconsin. The muffler mounts cracked and I lost it on the high way. I put a tin can over the pipe when it was sitting. it either blew off or I forgot to put it on, and it sat for about 6 months. When I started it it would barley crank over till it blew a big glob of water out. Two cylinders had filled and rusted pretty bad. the compression was half on those two cylinders. I wanted $1500 knowing it needed an engine or overhaul. So, I put it on for $2500. One guy came out, I started it, ground out a stump in my yard, but it was blowing oil out the filler tube bad, lots of ring blow by. He said it's going to need a lot of work, will you take $1500 cash? I said I don't want to, but my wife wants it out of the yard. So, if it makes her happy, I'll take $1500.
On the other hand, I'll have a 100CC saw with a brand new $60 chain on a 36" bar, and a half dozen idiots will show up. They go, oh, I didn't know a 100CC saw with a 36" bar was that big, will you take $50 for it? AAHHHH!
Some of my C’list shoppers think I’m desperate to sell a saw. Lowball offer they make.
Then they see the eighty plus in the garage. And, I hardly budge on the price.
You've got me trumped, I only have about 40.
I’ll take it off your hands at full price. I’ll send a third-party check and you can mail the saw to me in Beijing.
Facebook is good for sellers but bad for buyers. Tried to replace my dead washer for a week and nobody responded! Not one!
Craigslist at least deletes old posts.
Thats funny as I usually have a washer or dryer on CL, have had people drive more than hour plus for one. Wife sells a lot more on Facebook. CL will get scammers fast , but I screw with them. Have sold a lot of crap on it.
Heck today I picked up 2 large rubber made totes full of AA mostly once fired shotgun shell empties for nothing. Guy had em as free. Granted they aren't a high dollar deal.
Chain Saw Black & Decker - $5 (Grand Rapids) hide this posting
They don't make chainsaws like this anymore. Price is right.
Last Wednesday I bought some stuff locally from a Facebook ad. Paid her immediately with PayPal, said I was going out of town but would follow up in regards to getting the items.
Messaged her today and was told “you never got back to me so I sold them again” despite her having my PM’s AND PayPal receipt.
That sucks. You get your PayPal money back?
Not yet but I’m not expecting a problem.
smoke free jacks are a selling point
Bwahaha!!! Looks like none of you guys with insurance and equipment took him up in his offer the first time so now you can just go get the wood.
So I guess nobody here wants to get rich quick? (Had to rotate pic to square up house.)
