It's a love/hate relationship. A few days ago I saw a beautiful chesterfield sofa on Craigslist for $200. If it was as good as it looked in the picture it was worth way more than that, maybe closer to $2000. The posting was 16 hours old but I went ahead and e-mailed and left a phone message. For the rest of the day I checked my e-mail like, every ten minutes. I finally called again and reached a very nice old gentleman who was selling because of an upcoming move to a retirement home. He gave my number to his neighbor who was handling the sale for him. And, yes, he had received a lot of interest. I pretty much gave up at that point, I mean, for that price I'm pretty sure the first person who came took it.
I checked off and on the next day and finally the post was removed. So I didn't get it. :( This has happened so many times, and then I see beautiful furniture all the time that I don't need… it's hard to get the timing right!
Here are a few favorites that I don't need but love:
French Provencial Twin Beds 2 sets for $225
Oak Dresser $95
Pair of Vintage Wingbacks $65
Maple Dresser $95
20 Church Pews 71/2 ft. long and 9ft. long $100 and $125 each.
Mahogany Bed $285
And then I'm doubting myself, maybe I do need the french beds, one for my daughter and I could sell the other…. and the wing chairs have really good lines…
This drives my husband crazy, by the way, but I can't help it, I love old furniture!
