  • Found a bouncer and swing on there for my 2nd daughter that the women only used for a couple months and then had to move and didn't want to take with. They were practically new and they were a steal!

  • yes, to buy and sell. But with CAUTION. I'll meet someone, but they aren't coming to my home and i'm not going to theirs, unless they'll come out to the driveway.

  • ~*Yes*~... I stay away from the free section because most people use it to have others take their trash, I swear, Sacramento area has mainly things like stained 10 year old couches... ~*Eewww*~

    I have seen some great deals on Craigs List but most people selling on there want what they paid brand new for a used item or they don't realize brand new it is cheaper than they are listing it for... I understand times are tough but why would I pay that high a price for soemthing "USED"???

    I do every so often when my kids out grow stuff, sell it, and they get the money, which they stick into their savings accounts! Like Toys... we sold a bunch of toys before the move... and I see other parents doing the same thing... selling, giving the cash to the kids, and more kids with savings accounts

  • I bought a train table for ds this past weekend through craigslist. $75, huge wooden one including a wooden train set and a bunch of trains! Missing one track but no biggie, we worked our way around it. The table is in excellent condition and the bridges make train sounds :)
