Friday Love {Craigslist}

By Chelsea

This week's Friday Love segment may come across as a little creepy crazy awesome. And it is. If you can get past the fact that you are, indeed, buying from strangers, then Craigslist is an awesome place to shop. You'll find absolutely everything and prices are usually negotiable. Just be sure to use precaution when you are going to be making a purchase, (or selling). Some people choose only to meet in a neutral, public location. If not, make sure you have a friend or spouse with you. Communication is key and talking by phone first is another safety precaution you can take. But I'm not here to teach you how to take care of yourselves. This is about all the amazing stuff that can be found on Craigslist. If I see something pretty awesome in a store, I always check Craigslist first to see if someone is selling something similar. Check out these items below that, as of last night, are still currently available in the NoVA, D.C. area. These are Pottery Barn / Restoration Hardware worthy items. I have no idea where any of them truly came from, but I know that for the style, the prices are a steal compared to those big box stores.

And for some reason my computer won't let me insert text after the last item, so I'll say so long here and let you gander on! If you're an avid Craigslist-er, happy hunting!

Have a wonderful weekend!
