Craigslist Success Story

Last night my in-laws invited us to go boating this Wednesday night. We said sure, but realized that we didn't have a life jacket for our six month old. Hopped on Craigslist and found the following post:

I have 5 Life jackets for sale. All of them are for children. The weights range up to 60 lbs and the chest area measures 15 - 25". The inside tags say Child / Small / Infant . All have working straps and no holes.

Going from left to right.....
KENT brand life vest (red and blue)
KENT brand life jacket ( pink )
Ariel The Little Mermaid with Ariel and small sea creatures on it
Basic bright orange made by STEARNS
Cute Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck ( unisex )


Score! I emailed, and she answered me back within an hour with her availability for today and phone number. I drove over this morning and came home with an infant vest as well as a kids' vest (the far right Mickey Mouse one and the pink one) for a total of $8. She had been asking $5 each. They have a few stains, but are Coast Guard approved and in good working shape.

Have you had any Craigslist successes lately?
