9 Websites To Buy And Sell Used Furniture That Aren't Craigslist

If you like going to yard sales but hate waking up early, these sites are for you.

Posted on

1. Chairish

Chairish is an online marketplace and app for buying and selling curated home goods. Sellers can use the app to easily snap and upload a photo of what they want to sell, along with a description or story behind the item. Once the listing is approved by the team, sellers get 80% of the sale price and Chairish arranges shipping. Buyers also have 48 hours to return the item if they decide it isn't quite what they were looking for. Check it out here or download the app.

Best for: When you want something high-end at a medium-end price.

2. AptDeco

aptdeco.com

AptDeco is a new used furniture platform based in New York City that takes much of the hassle out of buying large items secondhand: It sets up insured delivery (currently available in the five boroughs of NYC) and handle the payment. Its curated collection of used furniture is also much easier to wade through than Craigslist. Check it out here.

Best for: If you live in NYC, and want a West Elm table at a Wal-Mart price.

3. 1st Dibs

1stdibs.com

1st Dibs is one of the top online marketplaces for high-end vintage and antique furniture, jewelry, and fashion. The price points are usually high, but if you're looking for a replica of Marie Antoinette's chartreuse velvet settee, this is the place to go. Visit here.

Best for: If you have high-end taste and the budget to match.

4. Etsy

etsy.com

In addition to Mason jar cocktail shakers and Game of Thrones embroidery samplers, Etsy is also a great place to buy used and vintage furniture. There's a lot to wade through, but using the price, color, and ship-to filters can also help narrow it down. Get started here.

Pro tip: To reduce the shipping amount, select a custom "Shop Location" from the filter menu and select a location near you.

Best for: When you want to shop an estate sale but you don't want to leave your house.

5. Lushpad

lushpad.com

Lushpad is an online marketplace for authentic modern furniture. Shops or individual sellers can sell licensed and approved modern and mid-century modern furniture. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Lushpad currently operates in North America but is planning to expand. Visit here.

Best for: When you want to Mad Men your house but don't have a Don Draper budget.

6. Krrb

krrb.com

Krrb (pronounced "curb") is a "hyperlocal" marketplace to find globally inspired furnishings. You can set a location and search nearby sellers or curated collections, but Krrb does not deal with the transactions or delivery. You can post via the website or the app, and there's even a function that aggregates postings from other websites like eBay and Etsy right to Krrb. They don't charge commission, but listings cost "credits" that you buy or earn through things like filling out a profile, shopping, or social sharing. Get started here.

Best for: When you want to buy or sell something unique in/near a major city.

7. Furnishly

furnishly.com

This Chicago-based person-to-person marketplace is a user-friendly way to find semi-curated furnishings in your area. Furnishly takes care of the transaction and buyers can arrange delivery through the seller on the site if it's offered. Shop here.

Best for: When you want a streamlined online yard sale experience.

8. FleaPop

fleapop.com

FleaPop is an online market for both used and new furniture. Sellers can create "shops" for free, similar to Etsy, and FleaPop charges a 6% commission. Buyers can shop by item, location or style and payment is taken through the website with Paypal. Get poppin' here.

Best for: If you like flea markets but don't like crowds.

9. Move Loot

moveloot.com

Currently operating in the Bay Area and Raleigh-Durham (with plans to expand), Move Loot is a startup that serves as a used furniture warehouse and marketplace. To set themselves apart for buyers, Move Loot actually picks up the items that are approved for sale and holds them until they sell at a warehouse for up to 60 days. After that, sellers can either pay to have the item returned or donate to a local charity. Items are reduced 40% after 30 days and buyers have the option of offering a lower price at any time that the seller must approve. Check out the site here.

Best for: If you want a smarter, better Craigslist (and you live in SF or NC).

If all else fails... troll Craigslist like a pro.

craigslist.org

If you're going to brave the wilds of the world's largest online classifieds, here are some tips from Apartment Therapy: Use "Show Images" and multiple keywords; if you're looking for something specific, check back a few times a day; make a personal appeal to sellers for items you really want. Start listing here, and check out more pro tips here.

Best for: If there's something really specific you want and you have a lot of patience OR if just need any table by tomorrow afternoon.
