Best Marketplaces to sell specific items?

I'm looking to compile a list of all the best marketplaces to sell highly specific items.

I usually use Reverb to sell musical gear and KEH for camera stuff but was wondering what other marketplaces exist to sell specific items. I want to avoid using eBay, Etsy, Amazon, Craigslist which I find to be a bit too general and not very good for giving me the best resale value.

Example; Is there a marketplace whose sole purpose is to buy and sell furniture or sporting goods?

Also, I think I know all the places to sell clothes like Poshmark so I'm good with that.

swappa.com seems good for phones and to some extent, tablets

- DPReview for cameras and lenses.
- Bulb Collector for old light bulbs and sometimes tubes.

For me most furniture is through local Facebook groups or apps that geolocate (can't remember the one I used to use) because it's free and a lot of that stuff doesn't ship. I'd be interested to see what the options are for cars.

I’ve bought used cars from owners (not dealers) through cars.com, but it’s been several years since the last car I bought is going the distance. No idea how it is for sellers.

Chairish is good for high-quality furniture (Etsy is also good for vintage furniture).

I have bought used furniture from 1stdibs, more than once. It's been pleasant as a buyer.
