So far, my experiences with selling nearly all of my worldly possessions on Craigslist have been better than expected. In the past few weeks, I’ve sold 16 items for a net total just of over $3,000 in cash! Now, mind you, I’m not thinking about how much I actually paid for all these items new—much too depressing to go there! What I’ve not anticipated, though, is how interesting and varied each and every buyer has been.
My very first sales transaction is this Thule bike rack, sold (after just one day!) to a guy named Lou with a long, unpronounceable last name who is driving out from the city to get it.
My mind races with thoughts of all those well-worn Craigslist horror stories—He could be a mad rapist! A burglar! A serial killer!!!
