I saw this gorgeous mid century modern buffet on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago but it was WAY out of my price range. So how is it sitting so pretty in my garage/soon-to-be-workroom you may ask? Let me share my little Craigslist secret technique with you.
Are you ready? K.
I politely asked for it.
That's it. When I see something I really like that I can't afford I send the seller an email that says something like, "I really love the buffet you are selling on craigslist but I am on a very tight budget. If you decide you can sell it for $ insert price you want to pay, I hope you'll email or call me.
The seller of my new buffet boyfriend had it listed for a couple of weeks but it didn't sell so they called me yesterday and asked if I still wanted it. AND I DID!
I really think the key to this technique is being very polite and honest. I'm not trying to lowball or insult the seller, I'm assuming that they may reach a point where they just want something gone and if they do I hope they'll call me.
Now, how should I make-over this bad boy? Love this orange!
And this white!
Or green! Green is my favorite color.
But this is probably my most favorite.
I'm kind of in love. I wish I could get after it right now instead of cleaning...but we are having a tiny Halloween pumpkin carving soiree at our home on Sunday so I need to make things shine you know.
Have a great weekend! Good luck with your next craigslist treasure!
