Okay…I LOVE Craigslist! LOVE HIM! However….there are certain rules that the listers should follow don’t ya’ think??
For instance….if someone were to see, say a sofa they LOVED on Craigslist and sent said lister an e-mail inquiring about the sofa….and you get NO RESPONSE!
I think that is just RUDE! I mean, would it be SO hard to just respond to the e-mail with “Sold” or “decided to keep it” or whatever? I hate to be a bother and resend another e-mail, but you wonder, did they get the e-mail, have they even the e-mail yet?? I know spamming is a problem, but I always try and inquire so they will know I am NOT a spammer.
Just RESPOND people!
OR, scenario number two….you see a sofa that you think you love and you e-mail and ask a few questions like, does it have visible signs of wear, or are the cushions firm…you know the usual. They do respond and tell you the sofa is in excellent condition, firm cushions, just a great sofa….so…..
You drive 2 HOURS to get to said excellent sofa only to find that it is just worn all to hell and back OUT!!
SHUT UP!!! This happened to me!!! And Steve…God bless him….We drove 2 hours to go and we thought pick up this great sofa and it was just AWFUL! 4 HOURS total in the truck to go see a beat up sofa…
So….we came home without it….we had to laugh!
Take photos of any damage and e-mail it to the prospective buyer, especially if they are driving to another STATE to see it…..JUST SAYIN’…
That said, I do have two recent purchases from wonderful sweet people off of Craigslist….
First my sink….LOVE this sink….Exactly what I had been looking for…EXCELLENT condition…EXCELLENT! $50.00
This cute little chandelier….I spray painted it (of course) oil rubbed bronze…$25.00
I am looking for some shades for it….
I am wondering if I need to lower it….what do you think?
And my swan I have had…not a Craigslist find…but she is all decked out for Fall…
Thank you for stopping by and REMEMBER the rules for Craigslist….be honest, and RESPOND!!
