Another Danish Modern Rocking Chair - Missed!

I can't believe it. Another Danish Modern rocking chair on Craigslist at a ridiculous price.  I thought $100 for the one I blogged about a month ago was a steal! This one?  $50!!!!!!

This was listed Thursday night at 9:45 pm.  Friday morning at 8:56 I emailed.  I knew it would be too late but I had to make an effort.  There was no phone number so I waited all day for an email reply.  I wanted this chair for my baby's nursery so badly but I did not get my hopes up.  Los Angeles is filled with dealers that monitor Craigslist 24/7 for deals like this.   There are actually apps that alert you of new postings with your key words as soon as they hit Craigslist.  Geez, guess I need a newer phone!

So, I received an email last night that the rocker "Sold quite quickly".   I'm sure someone spotted the posting 5 minutes after it was listed and grabbed it first thing in the morning.  Dang it!  Status: I'm still dreaming of the day I'll own one of these. ;(

Heartbreak, again.  $50!

What a disappointment! I hate that "so near and yet so far" feeling you get when you lose out on something great. My SIL has the CL ap and STILL missed out on a Brasilia dining table (a whole set, with non-Brasilia chairs...but cool anyway) for $150. :(

I guess even an app won't assure you're the first one! WOW Brasilia table for $150!

When I miss a deal, and we all have, I remind myself of the deals that I was able to get.

Helps a little lol.

Very true, I try to do the same thing. I remind myself I got a Milo Baughman recliner for $50 last year.

I can't even begin to fathom trying to buy vintage off of Craigslist! I dont envy you or the dealers with the apps. If you have time check out our rockers please, Thanks! Rapson Modern Rockers: Good looking and practical
