Gum Tree is a great way to sell your items locally.
You can sell pretty much anything on the site, with the main benefit being that you can attract local buyers who would potentially be able to collect the items from and pay you in cash, rather than using one of the expensive payment processing systems or giving out bank account details etc.
Using Gumtree is generally free, but they sometimes charge a fee for certain service, such as highlighting, (advertising), your item for sale/ service etc. If the service you use incurs a fee, you'll be able to review and accept terms that will be clearly disclosed at the time you post your ad.
As well as selling and buying, Gum Tree is a popular place to list jobs these days and it's definitely a go to site if you are in the market for changing job as well as selling your stuff!
You can also list community events, just as fairs, carnivals, football clubs looking for new players, that kind of thing, so it does come across as offering a real community feel to the site.
You can also advertise your business via Gumtree, it has a classified adverts section, so it can give your business extra, from free, exposure.
