Selling on Craigslist?

We have a dining set that I LOVED in the store, but it's just too big in our actual room. I want to buy a new one but need to sell this one first. I listed it on Craigslist yesterday and someone replied tonight asking if it was still available.

Hopefully tomorrow we will talk and I'll sell it. Didn't think I'd get a nibble so quickly...I may have to dig out some more stuff to sell! :)

No, I have never craigslisted. I am currently going through some "too big" furniture woes though also. I have a broken armoire, that needs to go somewhere. We might just list it for free. So much potential, I loved the piece, but it is soon big and so damn heavy, I just cannot find a place for it.

Hope your table sells quickly!

We sold my old car on CL. We also found our house on CL and our dog on CL. I also use CL to target specific garage sales so I'm not driving all over town.

I know a few people who use CL. Hope you sell your table fast

I haven't sold anything on CL but I did manage to score an almost brand new Fischer Price swing for half price on there. My only complaint was that it was battery-operated and ds LOVED being in that swing.

I sold my car on CRAIGSLIST. (Why did my phone capitalize that? Haha.) It went quick. I think I've sold a high chair also.

I've bought a few things, but never sold anything. I think it's kind of hit or miss, but if it's a good piece with a good price, I bet it'll go over well.

I won't do Craigslist.  I know someone who was shot in a CL crime.  He went to buy a game, and it was a setup for a robbery.  One shot killed both him and his GF.  It was very sad and makes you think.  I will put something on amazon or ebay first, with local pickup only.

 I look at CL all the time but I've always been too scared to actually buy anything. I know a lot of people that have been successful with it though.

I have had a few success stories with selling items on Craigslist. It is at least worth a try!
