10. Cars


While there is certainly a group of people that only buys cars from dealerships, there is also a large group of people who turn to sites like Craigslist in order to find a good deal on a used car. In this regard, Craigslist is actually better than your old classifieds, because if you really wanted to, you could look for a used car in any state in the country.

9. Appliances


The best thing about Craigslist is that you can buy and sell almost anything. As far as appliances go, you can get everything from a toaster over to a refrigerator. As long as you trust the person you are buying from, you can outfit your whole kitchen.

8. Furniture


Buying a couch can be a pain if you go to a retail store, because you’re going to inundated with attention from salesmen who are trying to get you to buy the most expensive item. Buying your furniture on Craigslist means getting your business done quickly and cheaply.

7. DVDs


Whether talking about Blueray discs or the regular old DVDs you can find a huge selection on Craigslist if you do enough searching. Most people assume that you won’t be able to find the newer movies on this site, but if you search hard enough you can certainly find someone wanting to unload a newer title.

6. Computers


Obviously there are two schools of thought on buying a laptop or desktop on Craigslist. Most people are going to want a shiny new computer if they are buying one at all. Others are perfectly happy buying a used model at a deep discount. Hence the reason why computers are among the top things to sell on Craigslist.

5. Books


Who doesn’t love getting a new (to them) book to settle down with at the end of a long day. The best thing about buying books off of Craigslist is they are usually deeply discounted and sometimes you can go the grab bag way of just buying a ton of books, and finding some you never knew you’d like.

4. Toys


The old saying goes that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The same can be applied to children who may have grown tired of their old toys, only to find one they must have on a site like this which makes this a great place to sell your kids’ used toys.

3. Tickets


While ticket brokers are certainly doing a brisk business these days, you can’t go wrong trying to get a pair of tickets to your favorite sporting event off of this site. You will have to keep a sharp eye out, as tickets tend to go fast.

2. Cellphones


Much like computers, you can usually find a pretty good deal on a cellphone as long as you are willing to look. The one thing you should always be wary of when buying these on the site is to make sure that they work, and that they work with your provider.

1. Collectibles
