Furniture Bonanza!

Yesterday, I had 4 furniture buyers in 1 day. It was great. It was a lucrative day. It was a bit cray cray.

First thing in the morning, I went out and photographed this turquoise patio table, which only needed a little soap and water clean-up.

I then wrote about it, and posted it differently worded enough so as not to be flagged on Craigslist under two categories: furniture and farm and garden. Within the hour I had been contacted by three buyers, including sweet white farmhouse. however, the neighbor who gave me her number and said she can be here within the hour got the table. First come, first serve.

Then I had Chris, also known as 3-Chair-Boy. For $70, he got me to deliver these 3 chairs heartchair1 in the back of my Honda Accord while driving on some very worn down brake pads. To his end, he gave me an ice cream bar and some sore throat drops, and appeared to be pleased that I had delivered something that was to his satisfaction. Sale closed, back on the highway.

Then I fielded a dresser situation and an art buy. The dresser was gorg, but I messed it up, trying to remove what I thought was a paint stain on solid wood. Turns out the wood was either stained or painted, because whatever I did caused some of the finish to rub off. Rather than work on it, I decided to try to sell as is. which worked.

No sooner did the dresser buyer leave, than the Gustav Klimtz lady arrived, not knowing or caring who the artist was, lol. I had spent all that time researching him in my post. She was a cute little Mexican lady who loved to buy trinkets and art, and as a fellow “packrat”, I sold her five pieces of found art for $35 – none of them being the original prints she came for. They were all found in alleys and I already have more art than I know what to do with, so I consider that I good deal! One piece was advertised on craigslist at the time as “equestrian art.”
