Carousell, Sell, Sell
A relative newcomer to Hong Kong is Carousell, the brainchild of three Singaporean developers. It’s a community marketplace app that’s super simple to use: You download it, snap a photo of what you want to sell, set a price and hey presto: It’s listed for sale. Other users can check out what you’ve got, and if they like it you can chat within the app to arrange a meetup. It’s fast and easy, especially in a city as small as ours. Having recently hit 100,000 listings in Hong Kong, there’s a lot of dross mixed in there—from iffy clothes to a box of pencils (yes, really)—but there’s also some gold to be found, from vintage clothing to camera gear. And of course, half of the fun is in the looking. Check it out and grab a bargain. Or maybe a box of pencils.
