Internet Marketplaces

If you're looking for something a little more low-key than an auction but a little more focused than a classified ad, you'll want to explore the various niche marketplaces, trading sites, and swapping sites available on the Web. Most of the sites invite users to sell what they don't want anymore. There's a particularly large market for selling your old books, CDs, DVDs, and videos, but you'll find at least a few trading sites for anything you might want to get rid of. It's worth exploring—you never know how easy it might be to make a few extra bucks.
