Housewives (and their husbands) are meeting up in parking lots all over town.  Why, you ask?  They are swappin' and shoppin'.  This summer has been incredibly hot, keeping many from having summer garage sales.  So many people have taken to social media to sell their goods.  


There are many sites to sell you wares on Facebook.  Some of the most popular are the "Owasso Swap & Shop" pages.  Also known as OSS.  On these sites, sellers post pictures of the items they want to sell with a description and price.  When someone wants to buy the item, the seller contacts the buyer through private messaging to make arrangements for pick up.  Some popular places to meet up are QuikTrips, Hobby Lobby, and the Atwoods parking lots.


From the Owasso Swap & Shop Facebook page:

"OSS Group Rules and Description:


This group is for the Owasso community but we happily invite m

embers from surrounding areas. These members must be willing to meet in Owasso unless prior arrangements are made between the seller and buyer. Large size items that must be picked up outside the Owasso area must be noted in the postings with the location.

When listing your items they must include a picture, with a full description as well as a price. No listings with “make an offer”. You may list OBO if your item does not sell right away.

If you would like to purchase an item that is posted please say “I want this item” with this there will be no confusion of whom the item should go to. All questions and negotiations need to say on the posts this way everyone has an opportunity to purchase the item.
You may bump your items once every 7 days with a total of 4 times maximum. PLEASE follow this rule as we don’t want the same item at the top of the page continually.

All listings must be removed once the item has sold to prevent backing up the site. We will have an auto delete on all post that are older than 60 days. These will help keep things moving smoothly. 

This is to protect everyone and to keep things safe!

Listed below are links to all OSS sites. Please keep your posts in the correct editions. Post found in the wrong editions will be deleted to prevent confusion.









Please enjoy all the sites and happy selling and buying!"
