I can not stop laughing. I see and hear of so many people getting great finds on Craigslist that I want to get the same great finds. Now I have to admit that I have this very strange affliction to the smell of used items. I have tried to go to Good Will or other salvage type shops and because of the smell I can not stay in long enough to look around. Unfortunate, again, because I see and hear of people getting such great finds. So I am occasionally inspired to look through Craigslist.
Some of my inspirations have included chairs like these for our sitting room.
However everytime I look I find nothing or I find something too funny not to share. First image is of a table that the lister is asking $200 for, um it may be oak but it's day has passed and the chairs did not match the table, not to mention the "staging" done in the second picture does not detour from the damage. Now I will not pretend to know anything about furniture, because I don't, but I certainly think the asking price is high. Although in a picture not shown, they do zoom in on the claw foot legs of the table. Which I also found funny.
This second table I like as a little bistro set, and I do think it is nice, but here is the description.
A beautiful dining room table with clear top and four matching chairs. Very nice fancy set for only 200.00 OBO
Please notice the "fancy". This had me cracking up. Anytime you feel the need to describe something as "fancy" you can pretty much bet nobody will be buying. Well maybe somebody, but not me.
