It’s no secret that raising a child is expensive. The costs really do add up especially those first few years when you need to buy all that baby equipment (crib, stroller, car seat) etc. Then your little one grows up so fast and what do you do with all the “baby stuff” you have collected if you aren’t planning to have more kids? Or if you are a new parent just starting out and not a lot of money, where can you find good quality baby products at affordable prices? The answer to these two questions is the same: TradingCradles.com
TradingCradles.com is an online marketplace for parents to BUY and SELL all their baby and children’s items! Find the items you need for your child and sell the items you no longer need to a family who can use them. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved. The best thing is that it’s completely FREE for both parties. There’s no listing fees, selling fees or any kind of fee actually. TradingCradles.com is the “middleman” connecting its buyers and sellers in cities across the USA. There’s no time-consuming registration either. It’s very quick and I think parent’s will appreciate that since time is limited when you have little ones running around!
As a seller, its very quick and easy to list the products you want to sell. You can select your city to find buyers in your local area and the category that your product is is in. Then all you have to do is write your 250 character or less ad, upload your image and post. The short ads allow for “Twitter Like Shopping” which is a unique feature of TradingCradles.com. It allows just the key features of the ad to be posted. They understand that parents don’t have time to read long-winded ads! Next, your ad will then be looked over by the Parental Team who check each and every ad to ensure there’s no safety issues with the product and to prevent spammy ads from being posted.
I think this is a great way for families to make a little extra money on items they are no longer using. Sell your gently used baby clothes and put that money towards buying some new clothes for your children or save it. Extra money is always helpful!
TradingCradles.com is also a great spot for BUYERS. Find items you need in your local area and save some money! Those big ticket items like cribs and strollers can really add up and be out of reach for some families to afford brand new. Find a selection of used strollers or whatever it is you need for your child.
The buying process is very straightforward as well. You simply select the location nearest to you and then browse the various categories to see what’s available. Then if you see something you like or want to ask a question about, just click the “contact seller” link and send your message using the TradingCradles.com secure message system. After the seller replies you make the arrangements to purchase the product. So easy!
TradingCradles.com is currently only in the US. I was curious to see what kind of products I could find. I selected “San Diego” as my city and then went on to pick my category, “Strollers”. I found a Double Stroller listed for only $125! I liked that they had the little Facebook and Twitter icons so I could share my finds with my group of friends. I am in Canada so I can’t buy or sell anything here, but I would FOR SURE be listing my old baby products on TradingCradles.com if I lived in the States! I love how user friendly it is and that it’s just for parents.
Check out TradingCradles.com and make some extra money selling your old baby products OR buy some affordable, pre-loved items you need for your growing family!
