When it comes to making a quick buck or just cleaning out your closet, the go-to platforms have been eBay and Craigslist. But those can be really hit-and-miss; either you end up selling it for much less than expected, it ends up taking forever, or you have to deal with some shady people. Sure, Craigslist can be a great tool for selling and buying things, but a new App has hit the market by storm!
