Hi, would anyone be able to remind me of the websites for the following? I did have the details, but have lost them somewhere:

- General second-hand stuff for sale in Moscow (in particular, I'm looking for a microwave, a toaster, a large mirror and a desk chair with adjustable height).

- Gym membership cards, i.e. if you don't want a gym for the whole year, you can buy one off someone who is getting rid of theirs, e.g. with 6 months left

On a separate note, any advice on where to borrow / rent / buy classic Russian films with English and/or Russian subtitles? And dual-language books, i.e. Russian on the left page, English on the right page.

Thanks!

YouTube has a massive collection of old soviet-era movies - available complete (ie not in 10-minute chunks) and with subtitles :)

... yandex.ru has a wee EN flag near right bottom of the homepage.

I've seen all that incl. the gym memberships come thru here on the [Marketplace].

Try http://www.komok.com/ - initially it was IT-oriented, but then extended to cars, households, furniture etc.

Ah :idea: This reminded me to look for Craig's List. Son-of-a-gun but there are listings for Moscow & St.P.

Craig's List/Moscow (http://moscow.craigslist.org/)

Craig's List is practical to match buyer/seller - like a local garage|tag sale.

It's been around here for years. I was surprised to see the Russia listings.

www.slando.ru or moskva.slando.ru - Lots of second hand stuff but they've just changed their interface and as all changed it sucks.

www.avito.ru - Very good personal experience recently selling/buying used/rare items.

www.otdamdarom.ru - Used to be very good but as I checked it now before recommending it here I was once again disappointed by mess the site has become. It used to have lots of free/inexpensive/barter offers.

www.otdam-darom.livejournal.com/ - Fee. Usually bulky items like refrigerators or washing machines. Last time I looked at it there were lots of free pianos.

www.otdamsya-darom.livejournal.com/ - This one is a bit different. People offer themselves.

www.irr.ru - Used to be good, then seems to have come down.

All of the above are in Russian.

Hope this is the sort of resources you are looking for.
