I’ve been in a bit of a stuff-purging mood lately. I don’t want to move things we don’t need and never use, and I don’t want to store them anymore either. With this in mind, I am trying to sell two nice lamps. I have them listed on Craigslist and KSL. I have had at least half a dozen people email or call me about them. Some have sounded pretty interested, to the point of asking for my address or trying to set up a time to come buy them. Still, over six weeks later, no one has shown up. It’s like there’s a curse on them. The most recent almost-buyers have included a woman who said she’d come on Saturday but never showed up and never called, a woman who was second in line if the first woman didn’t show up on Saturday but now apparently can’t afford them, and a woman who said she’d come last night. Then again, the woman from yesterday did call today to say she just had to work late and would try to come tonight instead.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
