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.
