Have you scored on craigslist? Let's share stories.

I fell in love with craigslist today. You see I've been wanted a longboard for the longest time, but never dug into the bank account to purchase one. Just couldn't justify dropping the $400 to get one. I mentioned this fact on one of the skimboard forums I'm a part of, and "bartman" tells me to check craigslist. "Can't hurt" I say to myself and I check. Nothing worthwhile. They're still asking too much. That was until Monday of this week. I saw a posting for a ridiculous price! So I contacted the seller in hopes that it hadn't sold already. I got lucky. So today I made my way down to Etobicoke and met up with Alex. Turns out to be a girl who bought the longboard, rode it once and didn't like it. So I got a nearly-new longboard for a fraction (a small fraction) of what a new one would cost. Needless to say I'm a craigslist fan.
