Listia All-Stars August 2014
When I signed up for Listia I had no idea what I’d find. I signed up so I would have something to do since I’m disabled and don’t get out much. What I found were a lot of really nice people who understood being disabled and it helped me come alive again and to feel like I actually have a purpose. I haven’t been able to work for years, so having items on Listia made me feel like I had a job and I could give good customer service. I love bidding on items as well, it’s been fun getting mail with good stuff in it instead of just bills! I want to thank the team at Listia for being nice as well because they definitely make the experience better. Thanks to all Listians for helping me feel better! Click to visit LynneDunlap on Listia
I have made many friends on listia. I suggest the site to everyone I talk to, in person or online. I basically live on Listia. the one person that stands out though is George A. he messaged me after reading a comment that I had made on a listing. he noticed that we both lived in maine. after a quick few emails back and forth, not only did we live in the same state, but realized we were only 25 minutes away from each other. we very quickly became facebook friends. Unfortunately I have been out of work for a lil while, due to the economy in the rural area I live. i was desparate for any work. I am a carpenter by trade. my son was graduating from high school and I felt bad that I couldn’t even afford to pay for his cap and gown. I happened to mention this on facebook, when George commented that he might be able to help. he needed some repairs done around his home, which I was glad to do. this gave me enough to buy my sons cap and gown, but also it has led to more work and leads. This all has happened in a months time and couldn’t have been possible without Listia. Click to visit Jitterbugjim on Listia
When I happened to come across Lista on January 25, 2014, I was not doing too well health wise. Being disabled, there’s not much I can do physically, so I’m usually stuck inside. I love to browse other auction sites, “window shopping”, picking out things I wish I could afford to buy, which usually only adds to my feeling down on myself. On the day I found Listia, it became a very happy day in my life which has quite literally brightened up my life and has made me feel better overall! As usual, I was leery and hesitant toward Listia because life has taught me that nothing in life is free, but as I became more familiar with how Listia works, the more I came to realize, that old saying no longer applies. What a great feeling I felt as I slowly but surely built up my credits, seeing that indeed I could win things for free! Then I became a seller! To simply pick an item from around the house that has been stored away in a box or something I haven’t used in years and list it on Lista, then watch people bid for it, gave me a great feeling about myself and made me feel good that through my auctions I was helping others feel good by winning my items I no longer wanted or needed! I quickly forgot about the other auction sites that expected me to buy things. I am now spending all my time on Listia, and get so excited when my auctions end and when I win auctions myself! My new motto is, “Whoever said, nothing in life is free, evidently hasn’t found Listia!” I want to thank each and every one of the team members of Listia, you all have created a community where people can meet and share things with each other in a fun and rewarding way! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I Love Listia! Click to visit Cirad on Listia
