Saturday, September 26, 2009!

So, it is in the middle of the night {actually about 3 am} and I'm perusing Craigs List.


Don't you?

Well, if you don't you are really missing out! Now, I've found some great stuff for great prices. Things that I'm surprised don't have a higher price tag. And I LOVE {of course} when I find something that will work for me for a price I can afford!

But what really amazes me how much some people think their 'junk' is worth!? Now, I know that one man's junk is another man's treasure. BUT come on! I do think there is a time when junk is just, . . . well, . . . JUNK!

The best find of the night had to be this listing . . . .

10 candles, 2 dark wall sconces, one 3 candle brass holder, two pewter candle holders, antique table mirrior, 8x10 picture frame, black leather picture album never used, 8 inch mother mary statue, one wood bowl, one asian design dark metal pot with lid, one wood pen holder. two black and white photos in blk frames, one coaster with changable picture cover, 2 yrds red material-behind 8x10 pic frame- two blk roses with wight wings and heart, porcelin doll, one heart and key ornament, smal round table. asking 100

3 panel asian shade 30$, two panel red double lined micro suede curtains- no lights comin threw these babies!- 40$ pr, burgundy lrg couch cover 80$, two lamps 15 pc, or asking 120 for all 5 items

or 200 for all!

cherry desk not included)

Lonnie and I just sat here and stared - trying to make heads or tails of the picture. BECAUSE it looks like some kind of shrine! Then we started laughing hysterically! We are assuming the table was set up for the picture to use in the listing - but then again, they might display it like this on a regular basis! Who knows!?

My favorite part is the USED candles!! I notice they left that out of the description.

Lonnie's favorite part was how the "cherry desk not included)" was added at the bottom!

Now, seriously - if anyone is interested {and live in the Nashville area - or they might ship!} . . . let me know! I'll email you the link and the phone number that was attached! {Anyone in the market for some black roses with "wight" wings and heart?? haha!!!}

{Later today, I'll post my big-O-screw-up post! Because - you know, I like to tell the world when I make a mistake!} {Okay - not really - but this blog is about the good and the bad!} {and how I fall way short from perfect!} {and let me just add one more of these {} for good measure.}

btw - the spell checker went crazy on this post! And I left them the way they were! tee hee

Some people just don't get it... You could probably buy all that stuff for $200 NEW!

Love all the paintings you have been showing lately! Keep up the beautiful work. There is something about a handmade gift, made with love!

I am on CL all the time and I admit the majority of my furniture is from there, but it does crack me up a lot of the time. Like the couches listed for $800. Let's be honest- if I HAD $800 to spend on a couch, do you REALLY think I'd be shopping for it on craig's list? LOL!!!

I'm so happy to hear I'm not alone in laughing my butt off at some of the craigslist items out there.

I also love the people who list their junk once a day so when you're searching you see their items listed 6 and 7 times. I didn't want your bad 1970's bar stool the first 5 times I saw it, but on the 6th I just knew I had to have it.

That is too funny!

This is absolutely hilarious! I was laughing so hard I had to catch my breath! I now know what I am going to do when I can't sleep at night. Thanks for sharing!
