This weekend we'll be picking up the following for only $120

Unopened 3 in 1 Lexmark printer (retail $70)
Desk
Entertainment Center
Coffee Table
End Table

I absolutely need a desk and printer for when I go back to school in January, not to mention that we've been using a sturdy cardboard box as a coffee table over the past couple months.

The tables and entertainment center are a little dinged up (not enough to really notice), but that just means I have a project when summer rolls around. I plan on refinishing with a dark stain or espresso colored paint and using green and blue tiles for a mosaic in the inset sections on the tables. I'm going to have a fun summer :thumb:


Has anyone else found such good deals there? I got a cheap armoir for $20 for DBF's clothes not too long ago. He actually keeps it more organized than a dresser :)

Wow that's great! Did you try to haggle the price down on anything?

He originally wanted $150 for everything, so I think even with my sub-par haggling skills I did well :)

Sounds like a great bargain.

I haven't purchased anything from Craigslist as of yet but I did have some luck recently selling a few things.
1. 11 pieces of 20+ year old art I know longer wanted went for $50.
2. New leather jacket I didn't care for went for $50.
3.Canon camera with extra zoom lenses and case went for $175.
4. New microwave went for $85.

I was pretty shocked and everyone was thrilled with their purchases. Great finds for you too.
