Mississippi Gulf Coast Bargain Shoppers and Sellers

Scheduled to open officially on the 15th of this month, Gulf Coast Swap Meet may very well revolutionize your bargain shopping experience. Even if you don’t use the flea markets, swap meets, yard sales or other local solutions to save some cash and instead frequent eBay, craigslist and the like you’ll feel at home using either the classified ads or the auction section on the site.

Gulf Coast Swap Meet is currently only for residents of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Use of the site is totally free with no catches. The site is ad supported and currently looking for sponsors from the local area. Local area businesses must be based in the area in or around Gulfport, Biloxi, Ocean Springs, Long beach, Gautier or Pascagoula.

What’s on eBay today?

Wiimote charge station. This charges 2 wiimotes and comes with 2 2800mAh batteries. Including shipping it’s $13.30. Saving you $7.00 off the retail price.

You can probably get a cheaper deal if you look around a little. Besides this auction is now over. I saw some the other day going for $11.00 with shipping.

I bought a 6ft HDMI cable the other day for less than $7.00 and bought a PS2 to PS3 controller adapter for the same price and both work flawlessly. I bought SaGa Frontier for the PS1 on the same day for cheaper than it would have been if I had found it locally, but as I said yesterday would have gotten a better deal from Amazon.com.

It’s not a secret that eBay and Amazon can be used to get great deals on stuff, but they’re also a good place to go when you’re bored. There’re a few more places I like to frequent to price my collectibles or just to browse for things to spend my money on.
Here’s a quick list.

Auction Arms is a firearm auction site.
Gun Broker is another firearm auction site.
Just in case you are wondering all firearms have to be shipped to an FFL and aren’t shipped until they receive payment along with a copy of the FFL.

Auction Fire is another auction site I like to go to, but I never bid on anything there. I read the fraud alert forum to get a laugh. Actually the thought of buying anything from Auction fire scares the crap out of me.
