Why?

So why are we doing this? Simply stated, our goal is to: “Make people’s lives better by creating a marketplace of opportunity and connections.”

We’ve seen an overwhelming frustration with the current solutions for selling stuff in Routt County. Typical classified ads are either too expensive or too broad to be effective and other free solutions like Craigslist don’t represent the Steamboat area well at all.

Steamboat Stuff was born as a solution to the problem of “I’ve got all this stuff in my garage with no great way to sell it.” Rather than join the choir and sing our woes we figured we’d be the ones to do something about it.

Then came the idea of using this platform to not only help people sell their stuff, but to benefit local non-profit organizations as well. That’s why we make it easy for you to pledge a percentage of your sale to the area non-profit you care most deeply about. We see this working on three levels:

  • You get a free listing with absolutely no risk to advertise and sell your stuff locally.
  • You sell your stuff and earn some extra cash for the things you no longer need. And the buyer gets some cool, new-to-them stuff.
  • You donate a percentage of the sale to a local charity so they can do great things in our community. Whatever amount you decide.
