And the Van is Gone

Hubby has had his van for 19 years.  He paid cash for it way back when, then treated it like his baby since then.  Over the years he has done repairs as they have been needed, but when the air conditioning went out and the head gasket blew and the shop gave him an estimate of $2500 to fix it (with a book value of about $800 in good working order!) he decided it was time to give it up.  I put an ad for it on Craigslist, my old tried and true place to sell things, and got one response.  Then I put an ad for it on Facebook Marketplace and got more than 20 responses.  We sold it to the first guy who looked at it and came close to our price and off he hauled it!  From now on I will definitely go through FB Marketplace to sell stuff.


  1. I've had pretty good luck with FB Marketplace - you just need to set parameters like "local pickups only, will not mail or deliver" and "no holds"
