Group Description

Do you live in Berks County, in or near Reading, Pennsylvania, USA? If so, and if you and have stuff to sell, or if you are on the lookout for good deals on used items, then you should join our group.

Do you provide a PERSONAL service IN OUR AREA (examples are childcare, dressmaking, mechanics, plumbers and handymen, etc), or maybe you're having a Yard Sale, and you want some free advertising? Then join this group!

We're part of the family of Reading Area CheapCycle groups that includes ReadingCheapCycle (our biggest group), plus AmityCheapCycle, BerksCheapCycle, BirdsboroCheapCycle, BoyertownCheapCycle and WyomissingCheapCycle. It is OK to be a member of all 6 of our groups, because sometimes people are willing to drive a little way for a great deal.

We're better than newspaper ads or eBay, because we're free! And if your item does not sell, at least you didn't have any out-of-pocket expense; the only cost was the time it took to write your ad.

We're not affiliated with FreeCycle groups, but we operate in much the same way. The biggest difference is that in a CheapCycle group, you SELL your item, and in FreeCycle groups, you GIVE it away.

Here are our basic posting rules:

No "adult-oriented" post - this is a "G" rated family site.

We reserve the right to reject, edit or delete any post.

PLEASE - make the top line (the Subject) look like these:

FOR SALE : (then describe your item and include your general location)

YARD SALE : (then give the location and the dates and times)

SERVICE OFFERED : (then tell what kind of service, and what general location)

SERVICE OFFERED posts MUST BE LOCAL - non-local SERVICE OFFERED posts will be rejected as "junk mail" and we will kick the member out of our groups.

In the body of the post, describe the item as completely as possible, and state your asking price. It's better to say too much than not enough. You can add OBO after the price (or best offer). You can include your phone number in your post.
