We drove all over the St. Louis area yesterday and mostly came up empty handed. I guess we shoulda just stopped driving and scrounged through Craigslist instead! Check out all these great bargains!
"Decent 3 cushion summer sofa ,,,15 cash only ,,please bottom cushions all the same ,,just the camera ,,,,has all wood frame."
Grammar and punctuation aside, this might be a nice danish style lounge sofa. The picture leave a little to the imagination...and hope. Weird cushions though. Definitely a deal if it's not all weird looking in person.
"TABLE AND 4 CHAIRS
94 INCHES LONG x 40 INCHES WIDE OPEN (WITH 3 LEAFS).
28 INCHES LONG x 40 INCHES WIDE CLOSED.
YOU ARRANGE MOVING.
NEAR SOUTH COUNTY MALL.
ST. LOUIS, MO 63125
$150.00 OR BEST OFFER.
CASH ONLY PLEASE."
All Caps? ::sigh:: Rookie. But the table and chairs look good. I'd call this Danish Conservative. Does the table look like it has a laminate top?
"Vintage Small Student Desk for sales Asking $40 Measures 28W x 17D x 30T. In very good condition. Please email, text or call my cell"
Not a SUPER bargain but still pretty cool, especially if you need a very small desk. Great size for a laptop. You could even put wheels on the bottom of those nice tapered legs so as to make it a mobile laptop desk.
"Very nice hutch in excellent condition. Email me if you are interested."
Note that there are no "key words" in this ad. The ads without key words are sometimes the best bargains. I wish the picture was a little clearer. This is why I wish people would either use a "real" camera or at least take a better cell phone picture. If anybody reading this goes and gets this, please send me a better picture! I wanna know what it looks like!
"i have a table w/ glass $25.00"
I had a table almost exactly like this for a while except that it had a laminate top. But it too also had a glass top (apparently not pictured in the ad). Again, no "key words" like Danish, Vintage, Mid Century, or anything!
And last but not least...
"Tall table lamp, 42" tall."
Dontcha just love the short and to the point ads? What is it and how much? Gets the job done. But then I bet they get tons of e-mails asking the dimensions. I've noticed that I don't think I've NEVER sold an item to someone who asked me the dimensions.
