If you've read my blog, you know I have an undying love for Craig's List. More than half of my retro / Mid Century furniture has come from Craig's List: my couch, dining room table, chairs and hutch, dining room rug, my bedroom suite, my son's futon, desk and chair, retro dining room light fixture, dresser I painted aqua in the living room, glass and wood bar cart in the living room. I won't even list the accessories.
But some posters really bug me. My grammar and spelling isn't always correct, and I can mangle some pronunciations. I use hanging clauses a lot, too many exclamation marks and sometimes what I'm thinking doesn't come out right in my typing. I realize nobody is perfect (least of all me). But these are classic mistakes I see over and over and it drives me batty.
Rod Iron - It's wrought iron as in forged
Dinning Room Table - dining
Chester drawers - chest of drawers (this one really bugs the heck out of me)
buster seat - booster seat
mirrow - mirror
Calling items by the wrong genre - everything is art deco or mid century modern when it's really not
Bran - brand
Armour - Armoire
Post a darn picture so I can see what you are selling!
Post a price not just best offer or call me for more details. I'm lazy. Make it easy for me to buy your crap.
OK, I've got that off my chest. I was window shopping on Craig's List yesterday and had to stop because it just made me angry. Shopping Craig's List should always be a fun activity.
