Craigs List and My New Bench

Have you ever listed or bought something on Craigs List? This weekend I bought this bench from Craigs List. I LOVE it. I have always wanted a bench like this. There are tons of awesome deals on Craigs List.


Craigs List (if you haven't heard of it) is like the want ads in your local paper. You can search for items in your local area. There are free listings, for sale listings, garage sale listings, swap/trade listings, even listings of things people are wanting.


You just have to use common sense when it is time to make the purchase or sale. Just like you would if you had an item for sale in the paper or were having a garage sale. I have sold a few things from storage and I always stop at the storage facility office and tell them I am meeting someone. I never give out any of my personal info. Never.



I just had to share about my new bench. I love old furniture. I had the perfect spot for this bench. Can you believe I have about 2 1/2 inches to spare on each side? It was difficult to get the bench in that spot, but it is staying there.


Be Inspired! Karol :0)

Your bench is awesome!! Looks very frenchy!

We actually sold a couple of pieces of furniture on CL back in the fall. It's a great resource.

I LOVE that bench! I wish I could find one like that!

I really like Craigslist, too. We bought our kitchen table set from there, and bought a quad for my son from there.

You have too much fun! LOL!!! I need you to come over and lets turn my whole house upside down - in a good way!
The weather will be warming soon.. and I'll be missing my visits and bike rides with you even more. :( I hope all is well with you.

Awesome find Karol!!! I have several things on Craigslist. No bites yet. Kinda of frustrating. Any tips on listing?
