Kudos to this guy for warning cheap fellows to back off.

3 bar stools – $300

3 seat height adjustable bar stool in white and brushed silver. Like new. $300 for all three.
Importance. Please read:

  1. I’d rather get rid of them than negotiate the price.
  2. If you email me to negotiate, they will sell it at your bargaining price to someone else.
  3. If you agree to receive them and their backs for less than $300, they will burn them in front of you.


This reminds me of the time, years ago, when Carla and I held a garage sale with our friends Matt and Loretta. Loretta had some nice ashtrays from the 1950s at 25 cents each. A man picked up one of the ashtrays and told Loretta he would give her a cent for it. Loretta tells him she doesn’t want to negotiate. Skin continued to argue with her. I was thrilled when I picked up the ashtray from him and threw it down the aisle where it crashed. “Now you can’t Start She said.

This was the same garage sale where I was selling two Apple Newtons and a set of Newton accessories for $50. A man closely checked things for 20 minutes and then got into his car and drove away. He came back soon after and told me that he suspected I had robbed the Newton family and that he would call the police if I didn’t give him the things.

This is why I don’t sell things on Craigslist or do garage sales anymore.
