Most popular weekend to buy and sell online

People like to sell their stuff during Easter weekend. Sweden's largest classified advertising site Blocket gets in about 100,000 new buyers and sellers during the holiday weekend, reports news agency TT.

The best day of the year for buyers and sellers is the day after Easter Sunday. "We usually have around one million visitors and 35,000 new advertisements," says Johanna Wilkens, press officer for Blocket.

Despite the unusually cold temperatures in Sweden this holiday weekend, people are still buying the usual items in preparation for spring. Outdoor furniture and bicycles are the most common things that are bought and sold.

But children's' items are also popular.
