Yay for Craigslist!

I usually steer clear of Craigslist, just because I've had some sketchy interactions trying to buy/sell on there... But I took a chance today, and it worked out! The rental place near my venue only has the steel folding chairs available, and I didn't feel like paying $5/chair or more for nicer ones from another place, and having to haul them pretty far to get them to our venue. So I had resigned myself to having ugly chairs.


I got on craigslist out of curiosity because someone told me about the linens she had found, and I found a listing for 48 white chair covers. We may not even need that many, but the lady said she'd sell them all for $40. They cover the back of the chair only, not the seat, which is actually easier to work with, imo. I met up with her, and they're perfect! She and her mother sewed them for her wedding, and they've been used twice by her family members, but they're stain-free and in good shape! I'm so excited!

when your done, you can pass them on or sell them again... I get a lot of low budget couples wanting simple ceremonies from my craigslist postings for being an officiant.

I love Craigslist! I found a photog for FREE since she's building her portfolio. We have one photographer, my FI's boss- he does photography also so we got 2 photogs for FREE!
