Craigslist virgin no more

Occasionally I check out the local "For Sale" boards at Craigslist, just to see what's out there. A gal in Buckhead was selling a dark olive loveseat and ottoman. It looked incredibly comfortable and had nice, clean lines. Simple, modern, unpretentious, well-kept - and surprisingly inexpensive. Made a few calls, one of my sisters borrowed our dad's SUV and brought along her boyfriend. Between us, my sister and her boyfriend and the woman and her boyfriend, we fit the loveseat into the SUV - barely but successfully! - and the ottoman sat on its side in the backseat of our Saturn. The woman was friendly and supernice and it turns out she's a graphic designer moving to the Upper East Side and couldn't take everything with her. All in all, a very pleasant exchange and it's the first furniture that I've ever been really excited about. At one point I was stretched out on it with a cat curled up by either side of my head, so clearly everyone is pleased with the acquisition.

Hooray! Someday I'll have a house full of furniture that I picked out myself, that wasn't a hand-me-down. And it doesn't have to be 'new' -- just chosen by me. SOMEDAY!

I've yet to make a craigslist purchase, but that Missed Connections field sure has provided countless hours of entertainment!
