Fleabay is being managed an Ellesmere Port resident who refers to himself only as Mr Fleabay.

Selling anything from baby clothes and children’s toys to cars and house clearances, the site’s popularity has soared over the last two months.

Mr Fleabay, who wanted to remain anonymous, said: “It’s been brilliant.

“It gives me a real buzz to help people out, especially as no-one really has any money these days.

“The reason it works so well is because it’s free, and people work it out amongst themselves what they want to pay.”

As well as offering items for sale, some people give things away for free or offer swaps for other items.

Others offer or seek services such as window cleaners, van hire or even a caravan to rent for weekend getaways.

“I have had loads of feedback and people seem really happy with it,” he said.

“As far as I’m concerned, if I can help people that’s all that matters really.”
