Baby Grand Piano

I just LOVE craigslist.org!! It's a treasure trove for the patient and sometimes you find the BEST things when you're not really looking.

Today was one of those days for me.

I just bought a Baby Grand Piano for wait for it, wait for it... $175.00!!!! Yup, I sure did!  (that's not the actual piano but it's the same style that I bought)

I was trolling the List early this morning and not really looking for anything in particular and came across an ad for a baby grand piano. I was like hmmm, this has got's to be a typo. So I emailed the seller and sure enough, it was actually selling for $200.00 and STILL available.

I went to see it and the seller's mom was so nice to me and was chatty, which was great because she had a BEAUTIFUL house and I couldn't help but gush at the fabulous decor. She shared with me a super inexpensive reupholster and a great fabric manufacturer, both friends of hers. She even offered to help me reupholster my Regency dining room chairs. 

So when I finally got around to writing the check, she said, "Just make it out for $175.00"  OMG!!!

The piano is in excellent condition and only needs to be tuned. I'm stoked!

Now I just need to figure out how to incorporate it into my living room design. Yea me!

I love craiglist too! My husband introduced it to me (I'm not from the US) and have been browsing quite religiously everyday!:)

If you don't stop playing!! $175? Serious? The best buy of the year. I agree CL is the best place to shop first when you're looking for something.

P.S. I love this... said...

Hi Ladies,

Yup, I'm still in utter disbelief but that's craigslist for you. Wonderful finds to be had.
