Abundance Aid: Everything Must Go!

As people finish their contracts and pack up they realize they have a lot left over to sell or get rid of. The question then comes up of where can I sell my stuff? It would be fun to have a garage sale but unless you actually live on a street in Korea with garages then you are out of luck. Otherwise, people either give their stuff away to friends, leave it for the next person or dump it at the edge of their building.

Thanks to several websites and online services there are places to go to sell your stuff online. The following is a list of where you can go to sell your stuff.

Where to Buy / Sell:
  1. Facebook Marketplace: Unless you quit facebook or deny it exits their Marketplace area is great to find something you are looking for or list your item. I have sold a few things on there and the whole process is quite easy and manageable.
  2. Seoul Craigslist: The next major place to go is Craigslist, which can be good and also a source for oddball pleasure. I would err on the side of caution when using Craigslist.
  3. HiExpat Marketplace: Although I haven't used their site to buy or sell anything this area of it looks very organized and diverse. 
  4. Waygook.org: This is a great site that is kicking Dave's ESLs butt. They have a section where people can list items.
Those are the major ones I can think of and that I would use if I were going to sell or buy something when I need to. For now, let's see what people have up for sale:
  • Don't know what to do with your life then maybe this seller has the solution for you:

  • I know there are a lot of people out there who enjoy snorkeling when on vacation at some island nation. Maybe they need some flippers:

  1. If you are living near an army base you may also be able to find a Facebook group that has stuff for sale, too. I know that there is a Camp Casey Flea Market group for those up north near Dongducheon, and there's a Yongsan one, too.
