COVID-19 Forces Changes To The Way To Garage Sale
The term garage sale has been reinvented. Facebook has spawned a new way to sell your random unwanted items.
Before the pandemic users would go onto local based groups and bid on items starting at a dollar.
Many of these groups hold weekly meet ups to swap cash and product.
With the current restrictions on social interaction, many have gone to a porch pickup. The auction will end and the buyer and seller agree to pickup at a designated porch. No interaction happens - the seller will leave the item on the porch and the buyer will leave cash or send an etransfer. I know from experience and the honesty between buyer and seller is amazing.
The world of commerce will continue in these strange times!
