Adventures in Craigslist!

wywh home

I have read several posts regarding how to find furniture on Craigslist (CL) either for yourself or to refinish and sell and think I can offer a few more relevant tips.  When I say relevant, I mean just that, it’s all relevant.  What is your specific situation?  Are you under a tight budget, limited to how you’ll transport something, looking for something very specific etc.  With that said I have found great success with CL both buying and selling.

Main rules to follow: 

Search Wisely. Search using words that one would use when posting.  Think like them.  If you want a long dresser to use as a media console then search for dresser but also try media cabinet, tv stand or table.  Who knows what words people use and an extra special hint, try common misspellings such as a buffett and a buffet.  It’s true that we’re not all wordsmiths!
