I Just Want to Buy a Craigslist Sleigh Bed!
....Or "Slay" bed as some spell it. I would even buy a Padded headboard and mount it to a metal frame. I might even consider something a little different than what I have in mind.
But I can't get any Craigslist seller cooperation, and I've been looking since December. I can find the beds, but either most posters don't have a phone number listed and only have the email address, or even if they have a phone number, they don't answer or don't return the call in any kind of immediate time frame. I just spent another fruitless Sat morning finding 3 possibles and NONE had phone numbers! It's so frustrating. Two weekends ago, I finally broke down and emailed for information on a bed I loved. That was Saturday morning. The return call came in on Sunday just before we left for a meeting at 4p.m. I'm not going to look at a bed or move a bed or load a bed in the dark, so I thanked her and moved on. Last weekend, the next seller emailed me back a day later and again, it was nighttime so I passed on that. Monday, I had MLK day off and tried to go look at stuff in the morning, right after the sellers had posted. One didn't answer her phone even though the ad had just posted. She called me back that night.
You get a day off, you find something, you want to go buy it. You don't want to get a return email one or two days later. I do understand that sometimes the seller's convenient time and my convenient time won't mesh. But this email addy only stuff is really cramping my ability to furnish my second bedroom.
