We just added the Toronto décor site styleNorth
to our daily blogroll. Founder Christopher Jones started it for anyone
with great taste but limited means and he has a fabulous eye for fine
finds in and around the GTA.
Check out his top tips for Making
the Most of Craigslist including all-important rules of haggling.
- If an item is well-priced, dont haggle, pounce
If you want to make a lower offer, do so during the email or telephone
exchange not at the viewing
Ask directly about an items condition; press for details on any rips,
tears or cracks
Dont be afraid to walk away. You are under no obligation just because
you booked an appointment to see the piece
PS: These suggestions can also apply to first dates.
