    I posted a real nice dresser for $25.00 its worth more than that but we just wanted to get rid of it, it`s taking up too much space. It is up stairs in our house and I need help bringing it down stairs, too make a long story short I had 6 e-mails about the dresser.(with-in 2 hour after posting) I thought $25.00 was a good deal…but most of the people who responded to the post wanted me to deliver it for that price. I think if they are to lazy to come and get it, I will just use it for firewood this winter….

Then check your local Craigslist and see how much it will cost you from a local seller. My highest price I paid was $22.50 and he delivered 10 of them to me.

    2. Things to remember:

    (1) Always use cash! you have less problems that way.

    (2) No returns if they find they do not like it after paying for it. Oh Well they can use Craigslist and resell it themselves.


    You need to VERY careful about buying containers that absolutely need to be food grade .... such as for water & food ..... the 3 rd party brokers, like on CraigsList, will tell you anything to make a sale ..... they figure when a person turns up poisoned they won't be found .....

    and PLEASE don't tell me they are food grade because they have a #2 recycle symbol ......

    I to have sold and got somethings, but beware the spanners. Best thing is if you sell google the email address of the person that's asking about it before you reply to it.

If you are dealing with a valuable item, large sum of cash, or are just not comfortable, meet elsewhere or have company over during the transaction so they cannot gleam any perceived weaknesses.

    It is a large dresser so I will have to have them come here. I do have 2 German Shepherds at home as well as a good arsenal
