Facebook Flea- The New Online Flea Trend

Facebook Flea- The New Online Flea Trend

What a fantastic day it was last Sunday in the Flea market! Great weather, fabulous vendors and fabulous finds, the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday. But sadly, it is over now. Flea Markets are not only about shopping, it’s also about the associated baggage of fun that comes along with it.

Would it not have been incredible if we could browse through all those amazing stuff everyday? *Sigh*

shocked-girlLuckily, Internet is there to save us all and enabled us to have our very own online marketplace designed to be as easy as possible to sell your stuff online, and buy other people’s. The feel of bargaining with a vendor and quoting your price is something that you won’t get in most of the shopping websites. That’s where Facebook groups come in- now enabled with features of buying and selling, it’s the exact feel of haggling with a shop vendor. A number of Buy n Sell Facebook groups runs for several cities in India where you can list your item or buy one.

While you have to carry cash in a flea market, in Facebook fleas there is no hassle of carrying cash. As I told you, it’s the exact feel of talking to a seller in a flea market.

Simple steps:

-> Browse through the listed items
-> Liked something, ping ‘Interested’ to the vendor
-> Want something, post a query.
-> Chat, negotiate, quote
-> Buy at your convenience

And moreover it’s accessible anytime anywhere, even then, when you are taking a dump!
You discover everything under the same cover no matter how varied your requirements tend to be and it saves your time as well. They say, ‘better late than never’.  All these made me take a resolution of shopping from online flea market only. I’ve currently decided that whenever I’ll shop, I’ll shop from online flea only. Even essential everyday commodities are available at attractively good deals.

Want to enjoy the exact same advantage? Why don’t you wish to shop from the Buy n Sell Facebook communities as well?
Who knows you might prove to be actually luckier than me and land up with greater deals than mine!

This OLX scam is the most hilarious one ever

This OLX scam is the most hilarious one ever

We recently read a post on Facebook by a person on how he got cheated and it was so hilarious that we had to share.

After spending so much time on posting photos of his iphone on OLX and chatting with buyers to make a deal, this person decided to meet his buyer at a busy street in Kolkata. Probably, having selling and buying stuff on OLX for the past 2 years, with all the trust, he left his brain to party at home.

Yes. This proves he did.

Even after being asked by the buyer to move a bit far and make a call to check the network connectivity, he didn’t realise that the buyer was planning to run off with the phone. (Oh man! Checking network connectivity is important, I know, but how many times 6 ?).



And did I tell you? The buyer had recently met with an bike accident and was unable to walk and.. he was wearing a hoodie. Suspicious already ? But c’mon our friend has come empty headed to the plot so he cannot make out anything.

Still, the buyer took so much effort. He made our friend wait saying that his brother had to come. And then he said he wanted to pee and tried to move to a secluded place along with the iphone. But. Nothing worked (Thank god, our friend was cautious about peeing at least).

Then the buyer started of with this connectivity checking again(7..8..9..) and ran off with the mobile the 9th time (yeah, 9th time. Looks like a fetch game with a puppy right?). Our friend did burst out his lungs trying to catch the buyer (okay! not buyer anymore) but went in vain.
