In light of the holiday season, we wanted to share Joy's story with everyone. Below is her story of how she used OfferUp to make her daughter's Christmas wish come true!
"I discovered OfferUp from a friend who just happened to come across it by accident one day and found some amazing finds for her little boy. Well with me being someone who loves a good deal I was curious about this new app. So I downloaded it and gave it a try and decided I would put some things I had been meaning to sell up on the site and see what would happen. It was a slow start for me but eventually, people would message about things I had for sale and it was so easy to get my stuff up and sold.
This past holiday season my little girl asked for an expensive dollhouse for Christmas. She has wanted one now for well over a year so I figured I had to get her one no matter what. I let her look online to pick one out and let's just say she picked out one that was well over $200. I just about fainted. So I saved and saved, and finally had the money to spend it on a 4ft tall all-wood dollhouse. I decided to check OfferUp to see if anyone by chance might be selling something similar. It must have been fate because the night before I was going to order a new one, I found the exact same one being sold just 20 minutes from where I live.
I jumped out of my seat and messaged the person selling it asking if I could pick it up. I felt like I had just won the lottery with that find! I only paid $45 for a dollhouse that was well over $200 brand new. I will never forget how my daughter's face lit up when she saw it in the living room all set up and with white Christmas lights on the roof of the house. I will remember the look on her face for the rest of my life. Thank you OfferUp for helping me make my little girl's Christmas wish come true!"
