John.....I have sold some furniture on Craig;s List & had no issues. There are positive and negative sides to using Craig's List.....I had a couple of bad experiences also. Rather they COULD have been very troublesome if I hadn't been smart enough and alert enough to know a scam when I see one!
The one thing I would STRESS FIRMLY is....Be certain to read all the info and warnings & advice that Craig's List has printed for users. Very Important. Someone of your level of business sense and maturity would not allow himself to get taken by some con-artist, but always be careful.
I sold an Amish-made Dining Room set and got very close to what I was asking. First couple that called & came to see it. I lucked out.
