Yolisto: Almost a Yard Sale

Since I moved here from the States I’ve lamented the lack of all kinds of things. Roads without potholes, peanut butter that doesn’t have lard in it, good coffee, Target, organic vegetables and yard sales.

And I mean real yard sales, rich people yard sales, yard sales with NICE things for sale, not the junky ones you get here once every blue moon where everything is overpriced crap.

Along the line of yard sales another thing that has been lacking here is some kind of decent classified advertising web site (you know I really MUST sell that Johnson Brothers tea set that I never use but keep dragging from house to house).

Well I was just reading the DroppedIn blog, way over there in Planet Merida, and it turns out that Malcolm and Jillian have just launched a sweet little free classified advertising site for the Yucatan peninsula, it’s called Yolisto.

There’s nothing much being advertised on Yolisto yet but it’s truly just a matter of time. It’s so pleasing to the eye and so user-friendly that I’m sure it will fill up with lots of tea sets I don’t need in no time at all.

It’s not the same as a real live American-style yard sale but it’s so close that I can almost smell the bargains…sniff, sniff.

    Yes, my husband sold something on Mercado Libre and it worked out just fine. The buyer was in Morelia or somewhere and they got the goods, we got the money, perfect.
