Washington neighborhoods have lately been pioneering new ways of offloading old stuff: Coordinated community-wide yard sales have taken place in Brookland and Columbia Heights. Today, the always-awesome Burleith listserv brings news of another innovation: the online yard sale, with items listed for sale at a site set up for that very purpose. This way, you can buy a Tae Kwon Do sparring kit, a Nespresso coffee machine, nesting side tables, and a juicer without ever leaving your house. Like Craigslist, but less creepy!
Kind of takes the community feel out of a Saturday morning walk, but there’s no denying that kind of convenience.
