The Garage app for iOS is an ingenious mix of Internet favorites Instagram and eBay. Combining the photographic and social media aspects of Instagram with the marketplace concept of eBay, this app is one of the most convenient platforms to buy and sell your stuff.

The simple interface allows users to post pictures of their items with captions and shipping options. Pricing can be fixed or open to bidding.

The Garage app embraces social media, making that awkward "I don't know you, but I want to buy you stuff" stage run a little smoother. Users can utilize Facebook and Twitter to promote their merchandise as well. Finally, like other social networks, you can follow you favorite vendors and "like" individual items and friends.

Not only is Garage a fun and social way to navigate buying and selling online, it is also free.
