    Swap-it-hk,
    Hong Kong Buy Sell and Swap

    Might have to expand your area...

    Our neighborhood FB page sells everything from kitchen utensils to flats and auto mobiles. The community includes FDH to penthouse occupants (many nationalities) and has a strong attitude of recycling so that is a part of the motivation by all. It is used by different languages, members simply "translate" posts. A local thrift store has popped up. You can find basics to antiques and free stuff as well. We also found/offloaded items on Craigslist. 2ndChance is good for furniture also but they are based on supply/demand. There is also a HK wide similar site and those that specialize in musical instruments, sports equipment, kid stuff.

    IIRC, it's an online community of sandwich enthusiasts with an odd fixation on Hong Kong.

    But you could try Yahoo auctions in HK perhaps.
    Thats not true, at least on my case. All my gadgets and personal appliances (mircrowave, toaster, induction stove, heater and fan) are pre-owned. Mostly obtain from swap-it hk and craiglist

    My headphones, camera, laptop, airsoft rifles, are bought on Carousell, dcfever, and many local online forums.

    I also never own a credit card, only debit
