Guidelines and Ad Tips

Guidelines

This site offers free advertisements for anyone wanting to sell -- or find -- wool-related items from spinning wheels to fibers, from carders to books, from looms to animals. Those posting the ads are individuals or very small businesses. The site is run by volunteers so please be patient and kind. PLEASE remove your ad when you have sold your item, thanks! In exchange for these kindnesses, we encourage you to donate to our preferred charity, Young Writers Project, which is doing amazing things with young people. Thank you!

OUR AD GUIDELINES:

  • You must be an individual or a small seller,
  • You are responsible for being honest and forthright in what you are selling,
  • It is your responsibility to ensure safe delivery of products you are selling and sharing,
  • We are not responsible for any misrepresentations but ask that if you have a problem, alert us, WITH the link to the offending advertisement/community member,
  • If anyone violates our basic honesty code, we will make sure the ad is unpublished and the user is blocked and contacted.
  • PLEASE DELETE YOUR AD WHEN IT HAS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF! Do this as a favor to the community: nothing can be more frustrating to someone than to find an ad, follow up and find out that it is long gone. So when you sell, please come back and DELETE the ad. THANK  YOU!

Keep in mind:

  • Use common sense in ALL transactions: Not all people are nice. So if you are selling an item, make sure you do not divulge personal credit card information nor get into complicated arrangements with people in a foreign country who seem to have limited understanding of English.
  • If you state in your ad, PICK UP ONLY, PLEASE tell the people WHERE you are located.
  • It is very important that you include your contact info in your ad, otherwise no one can contact you. Please, please remember to include that. Thanks!

I notice that in the ads, no one states the price of the item, nor where they are. I've been looking at looms for sale. Is there a link to more info about the items, that I am missing? I have used the contact info to email the sellers of the looms I'm interested in. Seems a little combersome if they don't live near me or the price is too high.

When I place an ad to sell a loom and a spinning wheeel, should I leave off the price and also where I'm located? 

Thanks for the help,

Nancy

 

hello someone,

when I click on a category, a blank page opens. I can't seem to find any info on any items.

I have a friend who is having the same problem.  Did you every figure out what was wrong and how to fix it?

It is made abundently clear that you want us to remove our ads when the item is sold but NOWHERE can I find out how to do that. How do I remove my ad?!!

I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE AN AD, PLEASE GIVE DIRECTIONS ON THE SITE

Hi,

How do we contact the seller to ask questions, arrange viewing, purchase the items listed for sale?

Thanks!
