I have found a good number of large classified ad sites in Europe. I
did not include specialty classified ads site, like those devoted to
selling niche items like furniture, since I did not believe you wanted
sites with a narrow focus. I also avoided numerous classified sites by
country that had virtually nothing on them!
Instead, I have highlighed the comprehensive classified ad sites that
sell a diverse collection of items from individuals.

Read "Craigslist Circles the Globe With Online Classifieds, One City
at a Time." 2005
"Though the international Craigslist sites are available only in
English for now, the formula seems to be catching on, if more modestly
than in the United States. The London site attracts more than 150,000
unique visitors each month, Mr. Buckmaster said. The Paris site, begun
in November, already draws 50,000 unique visitors monthly. Other
recently added sites, including Amsterdam, Dublin, São Paulo, Brazil,
and Bangalore, India, have drawn slightly less traffic."

Free Classifieds, Denmark-style
You've all heard of Craig's List, which allows most classified ads to
be run for free, and is 25% owned by eBay. And you know about Google
Base, a beta offering from Google that some have termed an "eBay
killer," because it allows sellers to post items for free. Now comes a
new version of classified ads from Denmark, coming from a surprising
source?a leading Danish newspaper publisher. And it's free, too.
FindAlt (Danish for "find everything") debuted today, a completely
free online service for classified ads that already offers almost one
million products and plans to double that number "within days"
according to Carsten Rysgaard, Market Director at Berlingske Digital,
the online arm of Denmark's largest media company. The smallest items
all the way up to used cars and even homes are for sale already.
"Marktplaats.nl is the biggest and most popular classifieds website in
The Netherlands. Every month more than 6.5 million internet users, and
this number is still growing, use the power and simplicity of the
Marktplaats.nl online marketplace. Private users as well as business
users trade goods and services on Marktplaats.nl with each other and
thereby give many products a ?second live?."
Though Ebay now owns the site, they have maintained it as a classified ads site:
"We have built Marktplaats.nl into the leading classifieds website in
the Netherlands," said Frank Crébas, managing director of
Marktplaats.nl. "With its strong global presence and technical
expertise, eBay can help expand our business into the future."
