Oh Kijiji

We rented out our last home furnished for the most part.  Because it’s easier to leave stuff than to move it, right?  Uh huh.

So I’ve been addicted to Kijiji for a month.  I’ll find a deal, contact a deal and lose the deal to someone else who doesn’t have a job and is somehow managing to cherry pick everything that I need.

Hello, is this play structure still available?  “No I sold it Friday”(i.e. 2 days ago).  Oh, really, it’s still on Kijiji.  “Nope, it’s sold”. Um okay thanks then.  And it goes on.  I am definately getting familiar with the geography.  St. Andrews is not close, and a wardrobe won’t fit in the back of a Ridgeline.  Fail.  Selkirk is definately not close and moving a play structure is going to suck.  Everybody seems to be selling their “barely used”, “just like new”, only sat on/listened to/drove/rode/slept in once, item.  I really wonder why people are selling items that are at least 20 years old that are “never really used”.

Then there’s how the people must feel about me calling.  That wardrobe you’re asking $100 for?  Would you take $50?  i would have to strip it and refinish it, but I think I could make it work.  The reply: NO! People will pay good money for an antique like this to finish it.  I will not consider that!.  Um okay then.  Best of luck.

But now that I’ve been talking about it, I’ve got a few desks to source.
