I have never purchased or sold anything on Craigslist.
I have read so many blog posts about people's success stories in dealing with Craigslist. My good friend Marie has been quite successful selling a car, a front door and various other items.
But I have always been a bit weary.
I have been looking through Craigslist for a few months looking for a filing cabinet.
So, when what appeared to be the perfect filing cabinet appeared on Craigslist near where Marie lives, I knew she was the perfect person to accompany me on my mission. We made a day of it by starting with a nice lunch and drink.
Here is the photo that was on Craigslist.After coordinating via email and text with the seller, we set up a time to meet.
We pulled up and she was waiting in her car in her driveway. We exchanged pleasantries and went into the house where her mother-in-law was watching her children. I took a look at it as she told me she was selling a lot of items because her husband received a new job out of state.
I handed her the money and left with a fabulous filing cabinet for my new home office.
A Craigslist success story! The seller was very nice and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
I am looking forward to maybe purchasing more items on Craigslist but I would love to sell some things too.
Have any of you had an experience selling/buying on Craigslist? How did it turn out?
