We all know there are some, um, "challenging" people on Craigslist...and here is the story of one!
I found this vanity last night. Nice enough, but all the original hardware is missing, and they've made new holes for single knobs...and the finish is in bad shape. Of course, this means patching the holes, finding new handles with the right spread, and stripping off the finish before painting. We're up for the challenge. The asking price was $150. Not awful, but a bit high considering the hardware is gone. I sent what I thought was a nice email:
It's polite and pleasant, right? Here is the response
Yep, just "NO". Not "I'm firm on price and busy tomorrow, but I'd be happy to show it to you on Saturday"....just, "NO".
So that gave us a good laugh this morning. Kenny said "let me see this vanity" so I went to the link. Clearly, no one else thought $150 was a good price, either, because this is now what the listing says:
PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL SAYING THAT YOU WILL PAY 100 CASH. I have had this table appraised.
Oh, and the price went up to $175...I want to email and ask for a copy of the appraisal ;0)
What's your best Craigslist story? We have so many, it's hard to choose!
