Flea Markets in UAE

Selling Secondhand Items in UAE:  Flea markets in Dubai and other Emirates

The UAE is home to millions of expats who move in and out constantly. As often as someone arrives, someone else leaves. When it’s time to go home, finding a way to dispose of your used things is not always easy. Some people opt to ship everything back home. And others prefer to sell everything locally to recoup some cash for their move.

There are a number of options for selling your things in the UAE. One way is to sell through web-based classifieds. However, these sites are actually quite cumbersome, because posting an item for sale is a long multi-step process. If you don’t mind this, you might mind the phone calls at one in the morning asking for your item at half the price listed. And most of the time, classifieds are for big things, like cars and homes; what about all the other stuff that you’ve accumulated over the year!?

Another option for selling used items are the various flea markets and private sales that take place throughout the year in the UAE. These events are ideal when you have smaller things to sell, things that are easily transported from your home to the event site. However, due to the costs of booking a table at these events, it only makes sense to sell your stuff there if you have enough things to sell to cover your costs (factor in petrol prices and time). One way to reduce costs is to share a table with a friend!

If you rented a table at one of these events, but you still have some stuff left over, post it on Melltoo for FREE and share your posts with friends, so they know what’s still available. After you post your stuff, we’ll handle the hassle of promotion, payment and delivery for you! All you have to do is snap a photo, sit back and we’ll deal with the rest!
