Craigslist Purchase

We have 3 bedrooms & DD#2 & grandson #1 are living with us. When GS#1 gets set up in his own room, we'll no longer have a "spare" room. I have been scouting CraigsList for a daybed & trundle. Will I found one. It has a pop up trundle under that daybed. The mattresses are barely used. And the bedding too.

That quilt is mine, I made it a long while ago. The daybed ensemble that it came with is RED & though RED is my favorite color, it was OVERWHELMING for this space. The lady that sold it to me was SO sweet & I am fortuneate that she workded with me for me to get it. She gave me both matresses as well as the bedding. She also gave me some baby toys & books. It was a really great experience. She said she was moving back to "the city" & was going to be downsizing.

We have this in our upstairs family room.

Oh, by-the-way, it's an exact match to the L.L. Bean iron bed I have in the masterbedroom. I had been drooling over the one that L.L. Bean has in thier catalog, but it's just not in the budget for *new*. I am very fortunate that I got what I did, from who I did!

I love CraigsList!

Well Barb, I have actually scored some really nice buys on C/L. I got the baby a kitchen set from Pottery Barn. A table & chairs set for the baby from Pottery Barn. A violin for my sister for Christmas. A restaurant stainless steel (6 ftlong) for my daughter (she makes soap). Um lets see....I can't remember what else. I LOOK on there all the time. I don't know what the next "hunt" will be.
