Just two of the MANY rugs we have sold.
How many area rugs does a home with wood floors and a nasty painted basement floor need? As many as can be obtained. It just so happens that we had exactly that many.
|This rug kept our toes warm in the cold bedroom through the winter.|
Let's go from the boring to the awesome. Above: Boring (but nice quality...) This rug also has a rather boring sale story. Someone just saw it, liked it, came over, and gave us the cash for it. You didn't think that everything I sold on Craigslist has a cutesy story, did you?
After the break: Awesome.
Thanks for sticking with this story. Below is the photo of your reward.
|It would only be sweet-er if it had been free-er!|
It was listed on Craigslist for just a few dollars, being old, stained, and covered with old dog hair. Not being surprised at anything that happens on Craigslist anymore, we had no special feelings when the interest emails popped up. It was purchased by a nice couple who had to pick it up at 6:30 in the morning on their way to work. Turns out this couple was in the business of basement water damage restoration, and had a busy couple of weeks after a severe washout rain and flash flooding in our area. When they saw the rug, they deemed it cleanable!
I am very interested to meet the people who have hobbies that pay off with nice things. I have met furniture painters, carpet cleaners, art students, and others who are in the re-purposing game. I would really like to check out this as a possible hobby to add to my growing list. Maybe I can make some money but, more importantly, maybe I can get some cool stuff, meet some cool people, and get some cool stories.
As always, read, subscribe, comment, and enjoy!
