There is was moving through my daily ritual of memorizing the listings of value or interest on my local Craigslist when I see at the bottom of a post "more great items listed in Antiques Category". WHAT THE HELL? Craigslist has an antiques category?!?! How did I not notice this! I had assumed that for the last 2-3 years I was missing out on those "great finds" and "cool old stuff" cause I was not checking early enough in the day or I just wasn't clicking on the right listings. (I maintain a policy of only clicking on listings with images... Come on even the worst technophobe has a cell phone with a digital camera!) I have even sold oldish looking items on Craiglist and totally sold them for cheap!! Most likely I lost good $$$$ cause I listed them in the regular furniture category! And here I thought my life sucked because I don't own a pickup truck and a warehouse to repaint my Craigslist finds! In reality I was truly missing out because I yet to discovery the antiques section. Look at this great listing for this cute settee!
I have already emailed about this SUPER old listing and alas it has long since been sold for a whopping $50! And I had such dreams of recovering it like these beautiful settees at Squint. I guess better luck next time.
