You read the awesome feature.

You fall in love with Amy’s blog.

You realize: “Wait a minute, I have never seen this table before!!”

I apologize.  “I’m sorry I didn’t share this sooner!!!”  I got this awesome set which I sort of hinted at a few weeks ago on my Facebook Page, but I never ACTUALLY showed you.  So… here it is!

    Hi there…absolutely love this set! How do you find such great deals on kijiji? What did you enter in search field…just table and chairs? Would love to find something like this.

      Hi! Thank you so much!! Getting great deals on Kijiji is not difficult, but it does require patience! I had been looking for the perfect set for months when I found this one. The trick is knowing what you want, but not being too specific – I needed a round table and already had chairs. Not everyone was willing to sell without chairs and I wasn’t willing to pay over $100 for a table and chairs if all I needed was a table. This was the right price, even if I didn’t want to keep the chairs (but I did, because they’re fabulous). I didn’t search for anything in particular. I just looked in my area through the furniture category. Another thing you have to decide on is distance – I didn’t want to drive far to pick up the table so I looked only in my area rather than throughout the entire GTA, but that’s something you’ll have to consider too. Ok, last thing… you can always barter a little. I didn’t for this piece because I didn’t want to risk losing it and the seller informed me she was firm on the price right away. You can always ask for a better deal though – it certainly doesn’t hurt.

      You know, you have me thinking I should maybe write a post with tips on buying from Kijij or Craigslist. What do you think?

      Thanks for the great question, by the way. And please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need help looking for something – I do love the hunt! You can reach me at thelearnerobserver {@} gmail {.} com
