me3(marthaannflores) I started Listia on January 1st, 2012 and found out through Facebook. I started searching auctions and got all set up that same night. It became a nightly ritual of taking pictures of items for my daughter and I to get rid of and list. We had so much fun bonding, too. It also provided a means of companionship and means to help each other. Listia helped me through some real bad times: severe depression, recovery from surgery and more. During these times there have been many Listian friends that have listened and helped me along the way. For this, I’m very grateful. So not only have I gotten many items, gotten rid of many items, got closer to my daughters, made many friends, and improved my health, but most of all, I met a wonderful family with a precious little lady fighting daily for her life. Thank you Listia for bringing this little lady into my life (I hope one day to meet her – she holds a place in my heart).

Sept '13 @ SP(KarmaCake) I have been on Listia for a few months and am truly amazed by its unique and creative take on online marketplaces. It is better than Amazon, better than Ebay, and better than most other online marketplaces out there! The ability to sell almost anything is wonderful and extremely helpful to all Listians. As a medically disabled military US ARMY vet, I am so happy this venue is a blessing and a very successful experience. I look forward to continuing to use this site, list more and more, and become a top rated seller on here providing the utmost best customer service possible to all fellow Listians.  God bless you Listia, for giving me the ability to gift  Christmas presents to more people than I ever have any other year of my life. I love this site!
