For a while now, I have been trying to find a good deal on some patio chairs on Craig’s List. We found a pretty nice table at Lowe’s last year on sale, so we just really wanted some nicer chairs than the flimsy plastic ones we have been using. Most of the time what I found on CL was nicer, and therefore more expensive, than we wanted, cheaper or more weathered than we wanted, or as was the case many times, the person only had 3 chairs for sale…what’s up with that? Who wants just 3 chairs?
We finally found something that would work, and it was in Ball Ground, GA, so not too far away. The guy was selling four chairs, a round table, and a lounge for $50. Even on sale at the end of the season, chairs like these were going to cost $60 for four. So we decided to go for it and sell the round table with the plastic chairs we were wanting to replace and the lounge chair to recoup some of the money we spent on the set.
The square table we bought last year matches the chairs and it is a little bigger than the round table, so we played a little mix and match. Now we just have to find a buyer for the extra patio set and lounge that are in the garage. Craig’s List is my friend…
*Update: I was able to sell the round table, four plastic chairs and the lounge chair for $40! So the new chairs only cost us $10 (and technically the $8 or $10 we originally spent on the plastic chairs last year)
