Craigslist is the go to place to buy and sell things in almost all local areas now. Many people have found rare treasures and some awesome deals on there. The difficulty is that sometimes you have to look for hours to find that perfect deal, particularly when you are located in a very large city or are willing to travel to neighboring cities. On craigslist, multiple cities mean you have to perform multiple searches. Sometimes you may be flexible in what you are looking for and search for five different items.
