craigslist success

Craigslist is my new best friend.:) After the move we found that there were a few things we needed and craigslist has been a good go-to for some of those items. Granted, you don't hear back on about 50% of the emails you send, but when it actually works out, it's great.:) Since we got married most of our furniture has consisted of free items that we received to help get things started (a welcome blessing), so we decided it was time to replace a few of those items. One of the main things we wanted was a new couch and we were very pleased with the acquisition of this sectional. It's great for watching all those movies.:)

But my very favorite find has been our bikes. I had forgotten how much fun it is to ride a bike.:) And with the great walking/biking trail behind our complex we have a safe and pleasant place to ride. My brother helped us fix them up and we've been enjoying putting them to good use.
We also got a brand new bookshelf and a sweet chair for my studio. It's great to be able to get things for a good deal and to be able to use things that others no longer want/need. We're still in the market for a few more items, but I'm very pleased with our success thus far.:)

That couch is awesome! I have a friend who found a sectional sofa just like yours on Craigslist, too. Amazing. I should definitely keep this in mind when we move (whenever that will be). Also, I love your bikes. I've been craving a bike lately. It would be so nice, but we have no place to store one. Grr.
Love your finds!

Awesome! We want to have you over soon, so maybe you can just bike on over. :) I'll look at my calendar and get back to you soon.
