A few weeks back, I was selling this lamp.
It is brand new. My hubby took it out of the box and put it together. I had it listed for $10. I got an immediate response. The lady came over the next day to look at it. It wasn't exactly what she wanted but she was willing to take it off my hands for $7 This is a BRAND NEW lamp. Not my fault it wasn't what she exactly wanted. I told her thanks but I would wait to see if I got any other interest. I repriced it at $20
I bought these boots for myself at the thrift store about 2 months ago. It was one of those impulse buys and the next day I was regretting buying them. I wore them a few days but didn't really love them so I posted them for sale.
Apparently, the response to my ad was going to my spam folder and I didn't notice I had a prospective buyer for a few days. His email finally came to my inbox and we set up a time today to look at them. I emailed him this morning to see if he was still coming and I got no response. 30 minutes before he was to arrive, I hear a knock on my door. There he is looking like he just murdered someone. I was asking $25 for them. (yes I overpaid at the t.s. and wanted my money back plus $5 for cleaning them) He looked them over and tried them on. He said they were really worn. Yes, the soles were worn but they are Made In the USA leather boots! He asked if I would take $15 I said I would go down to $20. Again he said, they are really worn. I agreed to take $15 and I said I didn't have change. He said I only have $15 He showed up with NO INTENTION whatsoever of paying my asking price! Sure, I will bargain with you but at least show up with the correct amount and go from there.
I still have a few things for sale on CL but I'm seriously thinking about taking them to the consignment shop.
