    Anyone sell a crib on Craigslist?

    Just wondering if anyone has had any luck selling a crib on craigslist and how much it went for. Mine converts to a toddler bed and then a full size bed if you buy the extra pieces. I was thinking $175 (we only used it for a 1 1/2 yrs) and throwing in the mattress and changing table. Any pointers? Thoughts?

    I didn't have any luck selling mine. I had it up there for about a month and the only responses I got were fake.

    Facebook has selling and buying groups now. People create them and everyone posts what they want to sell. It is the same idea as craigslist but much easier. You should try searching your area. For example, I live on Long Island which is broken up in Nassau County and Suffolk County. We have one for each county and for all of long island. Can't hurt to look!

    Someone told me about this too. I'll have to look into it. Would love to get this crib out of the house!

    It's not a drop-side is it? Those are banned and you can't sell them. Just an FYI. Not looking forward to just throwing ours away when we are done using it. I am all for safety but kind of seems like a waste. Good luck!

    I had no luck on CL but when I put mine up in a garage sale I thought there would be a fist fight over the thing

    YAY!! I sold it on craigslist. I had to re-post it a couple of time and had lots of interest until someone finally committed. It's nice to be passed this stage in our parenting...no more babies. I can't believe our youngest will be 2 in October!!!

    Congrats!!!! I think the best part of being done with kids is donating or selling everything as you finish with it rather than putting it in storage. It is so nice to just get everything out the door lol.

    That's good news!

    My problem is that I donated/sold/pitched everything, and I'm regretting it now.

    Why are you regretting it? Something you want to tell us?
