Craigslist Stools

I was a Craigslist novice until about 2008 when Chris purchased a lawnmower from a scary little man who lived in the sticks. We went together to get that lawnmower because we didn't know what to expect. I stayed in the car but what I saw of the little man through the many trees that practically blocked his house, I'm convinced that he looked like Nebbercracker from Monster House.


Chris says that he didn't look like this but I'm not convinced.  You'd think this would make me afraid of Craigslist but all of our other experiences have been normal. Normal people, normal transactions. Wonder why I'm bringing up Craigslist, because I just made a purchase the other day from a completely normal woman. Chris and I met her at a local shopping center close to our gym. What did we get, stools! Beautiful black stools that will work perfectly in our kitchen next to our island. What do you think?


Both for $20! These very stools in brown would have cost me $60 at Walmart. Gotta love Craig and his list!

I just made my first Craigslist purchase this morning! I have to admit I was a little nervous. Luckily we met in a shopping area!

Karen I did get a great deal! Craigslist makes Walmart look expensive.

Brandi! Yay for you, I'm going to stop by your site and see what you got. And I feel you on the nervousness!
