    Smile What have you bought/sold on Craigslist?

    Me - just sold a horse trailer. Also sold a desk, a loveseat, a globe (yes really) and a saddle.

    Am wanting to buy and check often for a swimming pool, a playscape, a big outdoor shed, Honda Ridgeline. Did buy a side bed rail for $8 and a saddle for $100.

    My sister and her hubby bought an AWESOME leather couch and matching loveseat for $400. It is a really nice quality set.

    How about you?

    Bought the most amazing pony on CL for $1200 . Turned out to be the most solid little mare ever. We seriously can't find a hole in her. Had she been back in VA, instead of WY, she would have been a $5000 pony, easily

    Bought and sold saddles and other horse tack, hay, antiques, and all the farm equipment from the estate liquidation. I heart CL.

    We sold a car and all of our appliances very quickly. Hubby bought a Harley a few years back. Good deals go quickly.

    I have Sold many items "horsey" from my old farm were sold; including Parade Saddle, Side Saddle, Pony Saddle and Wintec Sport Saddle. Rattan Chairs, Trailer hitches(came with truck), and a Painting.

    I have bought; Golf clubs, bag and cart for $10! Heated dog dish, and dog kennel(outdoor).

    I love CL and have had good luck! When I "feel" someone is a Fruit bat or shakey I have my BF there and my German Sheperd Protection! All else fails I tell the person the item is sold.

    I have bought and sold saddles. I bought my saddle from someone on the opposite coast. I have sold other horsey stuff, and bought household stuff (a mini-fridge that got us through a major remodel) and given away stuff we no longer needed. I love CL!
    A helmet saved my life.

    Best score EVER! on craigslist was a huge mahogony tack trunk. I paid $25 for it. Apparently it belonged to an ex-wife who rode dressage. I didn't ask too many questions. *grin*

    We don't sell much, but I re-homed some kittens on Craigslist.

    I taught DH about it and he watches ads for several areas around us. He's gotten a rolling toolbox, piles of stainless steel fasteners, and his boat.

    I think my best find was placing a wanted ad that turned up our PTO chipper from a guy in Florida finishing up a state gov't contract. It was barely used, he'd only chipped soft pine and the blades had never even been reversed. And he delivered it up here!

    I tend more towards Freecycle if there's something I want gone. It's generally not worth the bother of people coming to look and trying to negotiate on the price.

    last year was a good one for me and craigslist.
    i scored a gorgeous walnut corner desk for the master bedroom, a really nice chandelier and a perfect size secretary. each item was two hundred dollars and the bedroom looks like a million bucks now.
    this year i've sold a mini backhoe, tiny cottage on wheels, and hopefully soon my truck.

    I've had good luck with selling old cell phones, a saddle, and various other randomness. I'm currently *trying* to sell a bridle, but nothing for 2 months now.

    I found my parents JRT x Pit on CL and he had a rough start, but turned out to be the best little dog ever.

    I sold a couch and loveseat and recently a gas stove and microwave. Tried to sell a 4-wheel buggy, but didn't work for anyone who inquired (size mismatch to what they had)

    We helped a friend empty his basement of a load of junk he was going to haul out for scrap, but I haven't had a SINGLE nibble on any of my gently used tack
