Selling stuff on Facebook

Hello, I've seen a few people talking about selling things on Facebook, and I was wondering how to go about it. Is it best to set up a separate selling account so that your stuff just gets posted onto the local selling pages rather than all over your friends' news feeds, or is there a way round this using your own account? I've got a fair bit to try and get rid of so I don't really want to be cluttering news feeds up with pictures of baby clothes etc!

I have just joined a couple of my local Facebook selling pages and have sold two of the five things I had for sale.

Furniture, white goods, phones and electrical stuff seems to sell quickly. Clothes don't seem to do so well. People also link to their own FB selling pages.

same as Preciousbane - there should be local selling groups to you... you sometimes have to request to join..

It is quite good to do Facebook for popular things though.. saves ebay fees etc.

I put on my status 2 days ago that I had newborn through to 6-9 clothes to sell if anyone knew anyone who might be interested. 2 days later �60 in my pockets for �12 outfits. 1 bundle so fare sold via local selling page.

I've just joined a few selling groups in my area. Kids stuff (high chair, stair gates, playpen etc) all sold like hot cakes. Love it. No fees and I can drop stuff off locally or have it collected. In 2 weeks made about £100 from stuff I no longer needed.

I think that if it's a closed group (ie one you have to request to join), then anything you list on it will only show on the group's homepage & not on your normal newsfeed, so no need for two separate accounts.

I found my local selling group just by putting the first half of my postcode into the FB search box.
