12 Unique Online Marketplaces

By: Marissa Brassfield - Published:
Now that Black Friday has come and gone, online marketplaces and retailers are gearing up their servers for Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday is the first Monday that follows Thanksgiving; it's billed as the Black Friday for online shoppers. Cyber Monday sales often rival those on Black Friday, and what's more, shoppers can point and click their way down their shopping list in their pajamas, without ever leaving home to battle long lines.

These unique online marketplaces offer products that large-scale sites like eBay or Amazon don't carry. At Zoomii, you can browse the virtual bookstore to select the perfect tomes for your bookworm buddies. And at Zigabid, you can haggle for concert and venue tickets without opening your mouth.

If you're on a budget this Cyber Monday, try MumSwap, where you can barter your knowledge or services with an expert for gifts like piano lessons, massages and jewelry. And if you're at a total loss as to what to buy someone, the Something Store will take your $10 and ship you a completely random surprise gift.

Check out the other unique online marketplaces below for a one-of-a-kind Cyber Monday shopping experience.
