What is Troopspaces?

Troopspaces is like a giant yard sale or flea market only online. It allows people to buy and sell things to people in their area. Having PCS'd ourselves both stateside and overseas, we know how difficult it can be. We hope that Troopspaces can make it easier to find the things you are looking for and to sell the things you don't need anymore.

What does Troopspaces do with the profits?

Currently, we donate at least 10% of our profits to support charities and organizations that help our troops and their families.
