We've added on a brand new software package and created an exciting new Mountain Classifieds Page for you to showcase your items to sell, jobs you have to offer, classes you are holding, homes for sale or rent, or garage sales to let the community know is happening! If you hover over the 'Community' menu option at the top and then select 'Classifieds' in the drop down menu underneath, or click our Classifieds button on the Home Page,



it will take you to our Classifieds page here:


As you can see, there are 10 categories to make it easier for you to quickly narrow your search:
  • For Sale - for our members and our businesses, what do you have to offer for sale?
  • Housing - homes for sale or rent by owner or realtor. VRBOs and AirBnBs available in the area. List 'em here!
  • Cars & Vehicles - have a car, motorcycle, RV, boat, ATV, or anything that has wheels or an engine that you wish to sell, let us know!
  • Services - from kids looking for summer work to businesses providing car repair, carpet installation, etc - tell us what you can do for us
  • Classes - are you teaching a workshop or class here in the mountains? give us details!
  • Pets - lost and found pets, pets for sale
  • Home & Garden - gardening supplies, plants, home decor
  • Jobs - looking to hire? put your ad here
  • Electronics - anything computer related, mobile phones or tablets for sale, etc
  • Community - garage sales, yard sales, community gatherings
To add a Classified ad, click ' Add New Advert ' under the 'Community' menu option at the top. It will take you to this page where you can enter your information:


Title: Fill out a concise but descriptive title, something that will tell everyone what you offer in a few words
Select a Category: one of the 10 options listed above
Price: if you have a set price please enter it here. If not, leave it blank
Tag: click this only for a sale
Description: this is where you enter as much information as you can about the item, service, job, workshop, etc as you can. Let people know what condition it's in, how old it is, how you made it, what service you offer, why people should use your business, job qualifications and expectations, class details, etc.

Next section below, you can enter a YouTube video link if you have a commercial or video of your product or service in action, home for sale or rent. Then you can enter up to 5 photos by clicking the plus signs, the first picture you upload will be the one that displays as the "cover". Try to keep them small in size so they upload quickly, and 700 pixels wide or less. Unfortunately, many new phones take pictures that are too large to upload directly - please email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'd be happy to shrink them for you.


Now, contact info. You can enter some as specific as a street address or as generic as a city. Skip the region location. You must enter a zip code in the postal code box. You can enter a phone number or leave it blank. If you don't enter a phone number, please be sure to have an email address in the description

After that are the meta keywords and meta description. Enter keywords of whatever you think people would type in Google to find your product or service - make sure to put a comma between each term.


Now for the last part! Posting an ad is free, but you have the option to boosting it to be a top ad for $1 if you wish. The top ads are displayed in the scroller at the bottom. If you are one of our business advertisers, you automatically get your ads bumped to a top ad! If you choose to boost your ad for $1, it will display a PayPal button to complete the transaction.


To submit your ad, click the I agree to the terms and conditions button and and Post Ad!

Now, you'll receive an email telling you that you have a "new membership" - that's just the system letting you know that your ad has been approved, you don't need to do anything else. Now, your ad will expire 14 days after you post it. You will receive an email prior to the ad expiring asking you if you would like to renew it. If so, just log in and go to your Profile Page ad and click renew next to your ad. All of your ads are connected to your Profile Page!

Something we forgot to show you with our new Classifieds is how the ads look in each category, and how each individual ad appears on its own page!

For example, if you click on 'Services' right now, you'll see this list:



Click on one of the ads, and it takes you to a new page with additional information. You can contact the seller directly, add the ad to your Favorites if you'd like to think about it some more, Report the ad if it violates our TOS, comment on it using your Facebook profile (great for leaving a testimonial for someone you've worked with before), AND you can share it to your own Facebook page or any Facebook group of which you are a member for further visibility and reach!


Something else very important we didn't mention is to please read our Classifieds Ads Terms of Service . These are separate and distinct from the site TOS . These are essentailly copied from Craigslist, if you have any questions or would like to request reviews and changes, please contact us privately at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We reserve the right to take down any ad we deem in violation of our TOS so as to not run afoul of the law and risk our site availability for the use of others.

As always, we recommend safe practices when meeting with others to exchange items. Utilize the law enforcement safe zones or meet in other public places, and be sure to let someone know where you are going and whom you are meeting.

Thank you for using My Mountain Town for your Classified needs! If we can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact us as listed above.

Your Mountain Town Staff and Volunteers
