Imagine the possibilities. You’ve got a bunch of old Sega Genesis games, or a host of old records that you wouldn’t get nearly what you’d want from a pawn shop. Anyone can agree you don’t want someone lowballing you on prices, or being shafted when it comes to meeting up to purchase the product. Close5 changes that entirely. Now that college is over for graduated, you can now get rid of that ridiculous bean bag and Ikea futon that you probably have no use for. Who wouldn’t like that extra cash? Father’s Day is coming up as well, so how about helping out your dad by selling some of those old ties that he never wore and replacing them with something he’ll actually use?
