OSS launch Buy, Sell and Give marketplace
23rd May, 2017
The Outdoor Swimming Society (OSS) has launched a Buy, Sell and Give marketplace on Facebook and members are already exchanging quality kit. One swimmer’s trash is another swimmer’s treasure.
Fancy a men’s Aquasphere Pursuit, pool training kit or ladies BlueSeventy wetsuit? It is all on the marketplace. As well as those selling kit, there are also swimmers seeking it. Swimmers prepared to borrow or buy wetsuits for the Bantham Swoosh and swimmers looking for their first wetsuit.
“One person’s ill fitting wetsuit is another’s ‘fits like a glove’ suit,” says OSS Founder Kate Rew. “Happy cupboard clearance!”
Rules will evolve as the marketplace develops, but the simple rules are that it is a place to sell second-hand swim related kit and not for commercial sales or ticket selling. So far the group has almost 400 members, but the bigger the group will create more of an active marketplace.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a bargain or use it as an excuse for a spring clean. Join the group on Facebook.
