You girls Rock...

Last week I asked for help with selling on Craig's list and you girls came to my rescue! I followed everything you told me and we sold the dresser and dining room furniture in 3 days! Amazing! Last night after they left with the dining room set and we walked back into the house, Tony looked at me and said "This is fun, what else can we sell!"

Here are the directions I followed as advised by you:

1. Have a catchy title.
2. Detailed description of item and include measurements
3. Cash only
4. Good Price/obo (or best offer)
5. Take good pictures (not from your phone)
6. They must pick up.
7. Don't give your number, have them email their phone number to you and you call them.
8. I had Tony call them back. He called on his cell phone and called as a private number.
9. Don't give your email in the ad, have them email you through Craig's list.
10. Don't let them come to the house when you are home alone (Tony was always home and if he couldn't I was going to ask my dad to be here)

Thank you to all these great girls! I never would have thought that the furniture would have sold so fast.
You Rock!!

Next, I need your help with which coffee table to keep. After I take some pictures I'll share and get your opinion! Then I'll be off to Craig's list again. This could be a new addiction!

Wow, great job selling all the stuff! We've sold a few things recently and I said the same thing as Tony, "what else can we sell?!!".

Woohoo! Congrats to you and hubby. And yes it does become addicting....both selling and buying. But it is a great resource and so happy you sold so quick.

Wendy,
I so happy that you have found success with the sale of your furniture! Thank you for turning around and giving us tips, we have a few pieces floating around here that may need to "find a new home"! Have a great day my friend!

How fun! I have never even been on Craigs list. Can you believe that! I need to! Also, I want to add. I once sold a saxaphone through the classifieds in the paper. Lond story short- the guy paid me with a cashiers check. It was FAKE! It even cashed at the bank. I was out 800 dollars.
it was a big ring , and he is in prison. But I always like to spread the word - don't accept anything but cash on large sales because I don't want it to happen to anyone else! If they insist on wanting to pay with cashiers check, which I understand because they have proof themselves it is paid for - meet them at the bank. Enough on that!
Have a pretty night!
