Bye bye stuff

I've got some furniture listed on Craigs List.  A few of the pieces I've gotten absolutely no responses, but others have been getting a little bit of love.

The white buffet has been getting a lot of calls.  She's quite popular!  I've had a few people come by to see it and I have one person who really wants it, but she's waiting for the thumbs up from a friend of hers (who hasn't seen it yet.)  I'm showing it again tomorrow.  The first person to give me cash is the winner, so I'm anxious to see who wins the race.

I received an email that went like this...

Is item still available? I can come pick it up ASAP.  Respond immediately!

I reply - "Item is available, I accept cash only."

No return reply :)  Guess they wanted to write me a check for $1000 and ask me for cash back.  Not going for that.

I've also gotten phone calls like this...

"Hi!  Is it still available?"
"What piece of furniture?"
"The one with flowers."
"I had two items with flowers and I sold one yesterday, so the sofa is available."
"OK bye"

Then there's this little striped chair.

Not a single call, not an email, not a wink, a nod or a nudge.

I think I'm going to have to take a few more photos, different angles and maybe I'll need to paint the wood.  Mocha sure loves the chair, but we don't need another piece of furniture for the cat :)

But this is the scene I love to see the most - the furniture sold and going home with someone else.

I'm really liking this selling stuff business :)  It makes me very happy.

Have a great day!

I love that buffet, too.
And I like the striped chair! I wonder why it's not getting any love. Tell it that I like it, so it will feel better.

Are you moving or spring cleaning?

I'm surprised about your striped chair, it's really nice. Can't believe people really think they could write a check and get cash back! I wonder how many people fall for that. Cash only is the only way to do it.

42N - We bought a bunch of furniture at an auction a few years ago, then didn't do what we wanted to do with it just sat in my husband's warehouse. Finally he has given the OK to sell it.
