Angies List Marketplace has been dead for several years, sono direct help there - you cannot list them on Angies List.

Most locker managers will not allow a private auction at the locker location, so unless you have enough walk-through space in the locker for individuals to walk in and inspect the items individually by appointment with you, one-by-one inspection by people responding to a Craigslist or similar ad would not work very well - plus that means a LOT of trips by you to the locker, even assuming your allows unlimited number of visits. Plus some locker places are not open very late at night, so showing times might not work for all potential buyers.

Normal ways to do this - move the items to your garage and Craigslist or local sale website list them (though of course this involves strangers coming to your house).

Or contact an establish Auction company. For large sales (like entire household possessions and furnishings, as is common with Estate sales and major downsizing moves) they sometimes do an on-site auction at your house - usually for smaller amounts they come pick up the items and taketo their auction house/barn and sell them at their normal periodic auction - typically weekly to monthly for that. Charge commonly about 15-25% for smallish lots not including especially valuable sets or antiques, 10-15% or sometimes even less for valuable/very large sales - plus they typically charge a 10-15% "Buyer's Premium" which is added to the bid amount and paid by the buyer, so they are getting a % from both seller and buyer.
