We have hit and miss luck with craigslist. There have been several times that people simply haven't shown up, which especially if we went somewhere to meet is quite annoying. But other times the transaction goes quite smoothly.
Yesterday I sold a gold necklace for $40 and that went easily. We met at an Olive Garden. Then today my boyfriend's meeting a guy part-way to deliver a VCR for $20. So that's $60 in two days. This is all fairly old stuff, too, that was not being used at all. So it does help, one step at a time.
I still have several other things on craigslist. Oddly I have a 5-CD carousel on there for only $10 and nobody wants it! Does nobody use CDs any more?
