    Bought

    $2800 sectional 2 yrs old nice well to do family and house. Paid $1200 ( what a sweet addition). We have kids didn't want to spend $3k+ on a couch.

    Potterey Barn rug barely used $250. Must retail $700+ easily. Great for dining room where my 1.5 yrs old will destroy anyway by throwing food all over it.


    Sales

    TiVo hd and TiVo series 3 both with lifetime. Sold em for $250 a piece.

    No takers: nice glass top coffee and end table set. Paid $700 years ago no one wants it....baffled. $50 and not a bite 3+ weeks listed. May end up keeping.

    Going soon : leather couch great shape less a small tear. Free! We will see how long that takes.

    I personally look in well to do areas for people selling quality stuff. Very happy with latest purchases.

    I hear you but it was a good buy. How long until your own family's ass permiates the furniture? I saw the family....if it was some stinky beasts I would not buy

    [h=1]Craigslist cellphone ad was used to lure father, son in slaying[/h]http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/...son-la-20131021,0,5876331.story#axzz2iPEsvGFv
    Police searched Monday for two men who ambushed and fatally shot a father in front of his teenage son in South L.A. Father and son had been lured by a Craigslist ad for a cellphone.
    Rene Balbuena, 41, and his 15-year-old son were in Gramercy Park near 92nd Street and Gramercy Place about 7:40 p.m. Saturday when police say two men walked up to their vehicle from behind and demanded Balbuena’s money.
    Balbuena got out of the car and one of the men opened fire, police said.
    The ad appeared to be a setup for a robbery, said Los Angeles Police Officer Drake Madison.
    Balbuena was shot three times in the chest, and his son was grazed by a bullet, NBC4 reported. Balbuena was pronounced dead at a hospital, and his son was treated and released.
    Police said the two shooters wore dark clothes and were thought to be in their 20s. There have been no arrests and no gun has been recovered.
    The homicide was the first in Los Angeles in 10 days. The last time the city went 10 days without a homicide was in 2010.

    You should see some of the stuff, though; it's incredible. It looks like they have a special room where no one ever sits or enters and they just decide to redo it every couple of years.

    Yeah, fuck Craiglist. If I want to use the internets to buy something, they can mail me that shit, I ain't meeting up with no motherfuckers in a Walmart parking lot.

    Yeah u have to feel the person out its possible even though u have not personally met. BTW my last buy the lady was home alone....it was awkward, and I wanted to tell them they should not do it in the future.

    It all worked out but sheesh I would never have my wife meet a cl person at home.....never!

    Listed the couch 6 people in 5 min. It was listed as free, wondering if I could have got $100 but oh well.
    He is getting it tonight, just put it in the driveway.

    Told wife hope he didn't pack the buddies and guns saying they got a sucker to bite on Craig's. Wish me luck.

    I meet people at their house or at a neutral location if I am selling (especially firearms)......I don't want anyone coming to my house. I'm surprised Freddy Meyers hasn't asked me to get a business license for operating in their parking lot.
