Hop Over to VarageSale for Easter!

EasterVarageSale copyWell, another holiday is upon us and this is your friendly, neighborhood reminder to join VarageSale! I’ve written about why VarageSale is an excellent way to earn and save money during Christmas and Mardi Gras. Now it’s time to showcase the ways VarageSale can make your life easier and your wallet thicker for Easter.

For those unfamiliar with VarageSale, it is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell items locally. Founded in 2012, VarageSale is now active in over 400 communities across the United States and around the world (including three in the New Orleans area: Kenner/Metairie, Westbank, Covington/Mandeville). It can be accessed at www.varagesale.com, and the platform is available on iOS, Android and Kindle devices. You can read more about the mechanics of VarageSale and the benefits to using the platform here.

Now, back to why VarageSale puts the spring in the Easter Bunny’s step!

Please note :: the items featured in this post were listed by VarageSale users in the New Orleans area communities. Some of these items may already have been sold by the time you read this, but some may still be available!

VarageSale for Easter Baskets

image_2Before browsing through Easter items being sold on VarageSale, I didn’t realize just HOW many baskets there are being sold. When I was a kid, we had basic wicker baskets. Nowadays, there seems to be an Easter basket for each of your children’s favorite character. Need an Elsa basket on the cheap? Join VarageSale. So your kid was really into Angry Birds last year, but is now really into soccer … join VarageSale!

VarageSale is not just a convenient place to find affordable Easter baskets; it’s also a great place to buy and sell basket stuffers. Everything from Easter grass to puzzles to games (often brand new) is being sold on VarageSale for a lower price than you’d find in stores.

When I wrote about utilizing VarageSale for Mardi Gras, I put out a call for all the creative, crafty locals in the area. Did you know that in addition to selling items that you no longer want or need, you can open a Small Business on VarageSale and sell custom items? VarageSale is the perfect place to buy handmade lawn decor, beautiful wreaths, and custom wall decor for Easter.

VarageSale for Disney Fans

imageIt is a well-known fact that a large portion of the New Orleans population treks to Disney World over Easter vacation. I was part of that population last year, and I can honestly say that I saw more Saints t-shirts than Disney characters during my trip. I wish I had known about VarageSale back then when I was looking for inexpensive custom Disney shirts for my family. There are several members of VarageSale selling embroidered Disney shirts. How cute is this Minnie Mouse Easter Bunny shirt? Perhaps you went to Disney last year and want to sell some of your items to earn a little extra cash? I did just that recently by selling the Mickey Mouse ears that I purchased for my family. Now I’ve got some extra pocket money that is untraceable by my husband and another family has Mickey Mouse ears for their trip at a fraction of the retail cost. That’s a win/win situation, I’d say.

That Easter egg platter your aunt gave you that isn’t quite your style?

Those bunny party napkins that are currently cluttering your kitchen drawers?

Those Easter-themed cupcake supplies that you bought last year, but were too lazy to use?

Do I need to even say it at this point? Sell them on VarageSale! There are thousands of members looking to buy items like the ones you’re not using anymore at a reasonable rate.

VarageSale for Easter Outfits

If you can find Mardi Gras and Christmas outfits on VarageSale, then of course you can find adorable Easter/Spring outfits as well. Before spending $50+ on an Easter outfit for your kids, see what VarageSale has to offer. Whether you are looking for a cute onesie for your newborn or a smocked dress for your little girl, there are plenty of inexpensive options available.

So, have you joined VarageSale yet?

If you answered “no” to that question, then I have three more questions for you:

  1. Could your home benefit from a de-cluttering?
  2. Would you like to earn extra cash with minimal effort?
  3. Do you love a good bargain and supporting other local moms?

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then I recommend you hop on over to VarageSale today! It’s the easiest way to save money in town.
