    "I own an on-line only store that sells vintage and collectible items and I needed a new and fresh place to sell my merchandise. I had an E-bay store and I have tried a few others like Craigslist but, I just wasn't attracting enough buyers. I tried Just Collect and I shut down all of my other selling sites. Just Collect is the best, tons of buyers and sellers and the community is so friendly. "

    "I had some old vintage salt and pepper shakers that I wanted to sell. I found the website CardShopFinder. It's a great place to find sports card shops but it was not useful for me when looking to sell other memorabilia categories."

    "Well, I've always loved ebay. But recently I stumbled upon Memory Lane and I must say I'm impressed! They seem to have hard to find collectibles and vintage items that ebay sometimes lacks. In fact, that's their specialty! I'd highly recommend the easy to use site for finding all the old treasures you can't seem to locate elsewhere."

    "After seeing the news about the million dollar baseball cards found in that attic in Tennessee or Kentucky, I started digging thru my old stuff at Mom and Dad's to find my old ones. I found a few and have been using this site to see what they're worth and see what they have to sell as well. I've really rekindled by love for card trading and though I haven't hit it big like those people in the news, I'm going to keep digging and listing my cards because you never know. It's also a good marketplace to start a new collection, they have such a wide variety to choose from and they also have comics."

    "I like that I can sell my stuff and not just that I can get an estimate of exactly what my things are worth. Makes it so much easier and if something doesn't look like it's worth much, I won't bother trying to sell it."

    "eBay is one of the biggest and most famous auction sites, and I use it since more than 15 years. It allowed me to make money from an old manga's collection, and to buy things I wouldn't have been able to find anywhere else. 5 stars are too few for it.. GREAT website and app!!!"

    "I had recently inherited a large collection of vintage vinyl records. I kept some of them but had no idea what to do with the rest. After doing some searching I came across Back to the Past. After giving them a list of my collection they quickly made me a great offer. I was glad to see that the records would go to those who will really enjoy them. "

    "This is a very up market kind of shop, very different from something like Amazon or Ebay. One downside is that you can't look at and bid on the items at your own leisure, the auctions happen at specified times. If you're looking for something genuinely very valuable and want more assurance than is offered on other, more general online shops, this is a pretty good pick. "

    "I have a ton of collectible items I've wanted to sell, but never had the courage or know-how to create my own business or website to sell them. Etsy proved to be a valuable resource that made it easy to establish myself as a seller and put my products online for the world to see. I sold four items on the first day and never looked back. The amount of people I was able to connect with and showcase my items was better than anything I could have done on my own."

    "I had a largish collection of memorabilia I inherited, most of which I didn't care to keep. So, I decided to give this dealer a try and was very pleased with his professionalism and the offer he made. Highly recommended if you've got some collectibles you want to get unload. "

    "Gone is definitely innovative, and definitely different than your usual craigslist. This APP makes transactions much easier, and you don't even have to meet up with a stranger, since they are the one who comes and picks up your items that you are selling, and they find the buyer!"

    "This a perfect app for moving all that junk that you no longer need out of the spare room and the garage. It's super easy to use and you will find a lot of people to buy stuff in your area instead of worrying about shipping stuff. It's also great for finding deals on things that need right in your neighborhood, there's so much to choose from. "

    "I was looking for a website to sell my vintage memorabilia and collectibles. A co-worker recommended Close5 to me. It's a free Android and iOS app which you can use to sell and buy locally. I tried it out and found it no better than Craigslist or eBay. In fact, I didn't care for it at all. The app interface is very hard to understand and use. There aren't many people using the service, so it's hard to get people interested in your items. It just didn't work for me. I'm back to using eBay and Craisglist. Oh well. I don't recommend this."

    "My fetish for technology means I am always buying new tech items to replace the gear I already have. This creates a problem because I generally have old gear that is just collecting dust in my office. Wallapop is a great solution for this problem. Wallapop is a like a mobile flea market, which lets me sell those items I am no longer using. Setup is quick and easy definitely worth the install. "
