Rant in a form of a question. Some prices on Craigslist....

Does it seem that some people that sell things on craigslist have their heads up their ass or in the clouds?

Just today I saw a used Jenny Lind changing table with stains on the shelving for $60.... you can buy a new one for $70.

Also there is this person selling a 10 year old couch that is "practically brand new" For $1500.00. Uh.... good luck with that one!

What is up with these people?

  • those people are just trying to make a buck i guess.... hoping to catch someone who doesnt know any better. I always sell things at a fair price on there just cuz i want to get rid of it!

  • Sometimes people really dont understand that "used" means "not new" in you cant get a "new" price for something used. You are never going to re-coup its full value. Guess some folks just think their stuff is "better" somehow. People say "Well I paid $100 for it! It still works/is nice/etc so I should be able to get $90 for it!" Um, no. Nobody is going to pay $1500 for a 10 yr old couch when they can get a new one you havent farted on for $500!
