Default WTB (Want To Buy) - *** If you can't/won't ship, please include your location in the title of your post!

folks, increase the chances of selling your larger items by indicating IN THE TITLE where the item is located!

example thread titles:
FS: Like-new carboys in Lansing, WI
Trade: Your cornies for my ball-locks (NYC)
Selling various items, Tulsa OK

i, and i suspect many others, aren't going to open every classified ad in hopes that it's within driving distance. i'm always in the market for fermenters, a kegarator/keezer, etc - but few things suck more than finding an ad for something you want only to discover that once again the item is in alaska. result: i've stopped looking here and now only scour Craigslist.


What hops should I grow? Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking: black harvest ale (wet-hopped with homegrown hops), witbier, hoppy saison, local sour cherry kriek, oud bruin, gueuz'ish thing, saison bottled with ECY34
Fermenting: IPA w/ HBC-438 (thanks vinnie!), 2x saison w/ 3726, Ardennes BDSA
Aging: witbier with brett, TYB saison brett blend, Tripel'ish with brett, sour cherry mead, rye sour ECY20/ECY34 split, several other sours, acerglyn, and probably some stuff i've lost track of...

I concur. I signed up for Freecycle, like craigslist, except ONLY for FREE items you want or have to give (idea is to reduce amount of useful stuff going to landfill)

And people just WON'T post where the stuff is!

Wouldn't it be easy to post, "Item is in Reed City" or "Item is a few miles west of Cadillac"?

This would help people know whether to even pursue the item, and I suspect it would also reduce the number of callers asking about the item then dropping out due it being so far away. Same applies here.

Yeah!! Thanks for posting this. I am down in South Texas and will see something for sale only to find out it's in Washington State. Really a bummer.

Two more suggestions

1. Include the price (it seems quite a few adds leave out this minor detail )

2. include pictures. (it may take a few minutes of your time, but why should I buy your used item, when I'm unertain of it's condition?)

(not so much a suggestion, but an observation) This is just my opinion but I think people ask for too much for their used items, especially when you add in shipping.
In general, I would rather buy an item new, than a gently used item at 10% off. It also depends on the item, and the type of wear. Good luck selling 3 year old plastic buckets. Now a barely used Monster Mill 2 - 2.0, OK, a 10% discount (taking into account shipping) may be enough.

The App doesn't list the location of members, so if they don't state it in the post and you are using your phone/tab then you don't know if you can get it.

Actually not true. If you view the posters profile in the iPhone app it tells you location.
One way or another, this week will end with a homebrew.......
