I've had the best of luck selling, finding and just plain getting rid of stuff using the online classifieds. Maybe it's because I'm not selling sex tricks or piercing equipment, but I've only dealt with the nicest folks.
Tonight I met a woman named Rose in the parking lot of one of the four Starbucks within one mile of me where she bought (for my asking price) this aluminum Christmas tree I didn't want anymore AND I convinced her to just take about a dozen assorted Christmas decorations. It was a win-win people.
It was awesome. She was happy. I was thrilled. We actually hugged as we parted ways.
It's really a cool thing. We don't even know each other's last name or real email address but we had a real human experience, ya know?? She was looking for an aluminum tree and I was looking to get rid of one...and we found each other within minutes of my post. This is same-day, second-hand kismet I'm talking about. Brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it.
Each time I move something successfully via Craigslist, my faith in the human race is restored...a little.
Hooray for "old school" Craigslist--the way it was intended, before all the sleazy hookers and con artists got involved.
