allstar1_110415(kimberlypusey) This site is amazing! I joined back in August 2012 and after a friend had posted on Facebook an auction she had won and I have been addicted ever since! Some of the people I’ve won auctions from have become dear friends on Listia and on Facebook. A lot people on Listia are genuine and there are some that are questionable but Listia protects your credits.  I have found that the people I have met on Listia ARE great people, like me and you.  Most are kind and will do what they can to help and offer advice. And I appreciate that. I have met some of the most kindest, sweetest, greatest people I’ve met in a long time.  Thanks to all the moderators who work to make the site a safe and fun place to be!

allstar2_110415(susanmalston3) I started on Listia to find items for myself and started by listing guitar picks (because at any given time I have a 100-1,000 guitar picks on hand). I teach guitar to local people who are interested in learning how to play, and as a reward for practicing their instrument, I give them really cool guitar picks. Soon my guitar picks started flying out in the mail at an alarming rate and my credits started to build up fast which I used to bid on and win a lot of intimate items for a local ladies group. One day I noticed a lot of local families were depending more and more on the local food banks, so I inquired as to where they got the food items from and I was told that local charity organizations donated money to help them buy the food for families in need during these hard economic times, then that little light in head lit up. Now today 100% of my guitar pick sales go to bid on and win intimate items, which I turn around and sell at our ladies group and then 100% of my proceeds are donated to local food banks to help feed anyone who is in need. This is just a hobby for me, but it’s a VERY rewarding hobby indeed. So anyone who GIN’s or bids on and wins my guitar picks; know that the credits you are using on my items are going for a really good cause…. Oh, and I do come across items once in awhile for myself, lol… THANK YOU Listia for making it a really fun way to help my mission with feeding hungry people.

  1. who won the goal contest, who won the 2 million free credits who won the other 500,000 free credits, Listia that was a great contest, I had loads of fun doing this goal contest but would like to know who won.

  2. I have been on listia about a year and a half ~ It isn’t so great ~ It’s like pulling teeth to get credits released even though I ship within 24 – 48 hrs. with a 100% tracking. at my expense ( which is very expensive ) When I was new to listia I understood that they would hold back credit payments, to make sure I was doing the right thing. This site causes to much aggravation
