Craig's List Addict
My mom has a table that's just full of papers, notes and books. I decided to see if I could find a desk that could hold and organize everything. We were hoping to decorate the house with more modern and clean lines but then I saw this roll top desk on Craig's List. I just couldn't resist. He was asking $300.00. I offered $200.00 (last week) almost hoping he wouldn't accept it because it was just too big for our space. He called today to say he appreciated my telling him that he should keep trying to sell it to get a higher price and that he wanted me to just come and look at it to see if I would take it. It's old and well used, lots of little scratches and nicks but what the heck. It's a lighter color mahogany with copper handles and marble writing pad. It belonged to his mom and now my mom loves it! Yae! We've already moved all her letter writing parapherlia onto it. She can't get over all the little cubbies, trays and draws it has. It managed to just fit into that space and not be too crowded. What a relief! I am such a Craig's List Addict!
