Local and In-Person
Local and in-person commerce brings neighbors together and strengthens local economies. It also saves time, money and the hassle of packing, shipping and returns.
Apartment Therapy Marketplace is about what's right next door, not a billion anonymous results. On Apartment Therapy Marketplace, you’re not flooded with tons of results coming from who knows where. When listings are fewer and nearby, it creates a cozy environment that helps neighbors get to know neighbors and gives them first dibs on local treasures. Local commerce also means less static and fewer scams.
But it’s not only about safety, simplicity and investing in your local community. Actually seeing the item you're buying and hearing first hand the backstory, adds a layer of richness to the transaction that is difficult to replicate online.
