I may be the only person not to know about ebay’s local ads – Kleinanzeigen . But on the off chance someone doesn’t know about them they are a great idea – free to post, and all local – pick up only so you can view before buying. When you post an ad it also produces a flyer for you to stick up on the supermarket notice board etc which is very useful. So a good resource for selling items when moving on from Bielefeld or for buying if you have just arrived.  Thanks Catherine for the tip!
