CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Baxter Village was built as a walkable community with plenty of shops and entertainment. Now, neighbors don't even have to leave home to enjoy another neighborhood perk.
"I'd say a typical day we probably get about 20 postings," said neighbor Erin Baird. She created the Baxter Parents Marketplace about two years ago.
The private Facebook group is restricted to neighbors. Currently there are hundreds of listings for sale, ranging from baby clothes to electronics.
"It really is going to depend on the day and who specifically is cleaning out their closet," joked Baird.
Baird admits she's never been drawn to sell anything on bigger web sites like Craigslist or ebay. "The nice thing about this particular site...is that we are just dealing with residents of our neighborhood," she said.
In other words, there's a safety and simplicity in knowing where people live.
People love their eBay and Craigslist, but we've all heard the warnings. The Better Business Bureau says never wire money, beware of fraudulent checks, and fake merchandise. The BBB says if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Baird says by dealing with neighbors, they don't have to worry about shipping or having to meet people at different locations.
The Marketplace has about 250 members. Baird and her co-managers verify addresses and get to know people in the process.
She's done a good bit of buying and selling herself.
"It's nice because we now have relationships," said Baird. "I know who has children a size up from mine and whose taste I like."
Baird says her group was inspired by another marketplace web site in Lake Wylie. She stresses the importance of privacy and establishing guidelines to make it work.
