was created as a way for builders, artisans, DIYers, crafters, construction companies, artists, and others to buy and sell extra or surplus materials that would otherwise go to waste. It is a marketplace for sourcing, recycling, and upcycling components for any kind of building project.

When a construction or remodeling company has leftover items such as roofing shingles, plywood, plumbing pipes, or electrical fixtures, they can use to find a buyer who is looking for smaller quantities of those items for their own project at a good price. While other online marketplaces feature a plethora of items, hones in on the market for new or gently used materials for making things. Sometimes, finding that perfect thing for your project can be like looking for a needle in a haystack, which is why we strive to connect buyers and sellers across the country or across the globe.

Listing Guidelines

Listings posted on must be in new, like-new (e.g. “open box”), or gently used condition, unless specified as antique. The items must be clean, organized, and listed in a specific quantity.
