$old

Yes, another sale on Facebook! Since the new swing (which we had to order) will be here Friday, it was time to do something with the old one. You know me, I won't just throw something out. I decided to list it on some Facebook Yard Sale Groups. I only listed it on three, figuring it would go fast...and it did. It wasn't five minutes after being listed a woman messaged me saying, "I'll take it today"....we messaged back and forth and her husband is to be here later this afternoon to pick it up. If for some reason he does't show, I have a backup buyer! I think that asking only $20 for it was a good way to get fast action! Heck, we used it 9 years so I think that's fair! Photo is the swing....which has now been taken down waiting for its new owner!

That's great! I'm glad that you were able to sell it so quickly. It's nice when you're able to sell or get rid of something quickly.

It is great your old swing is selling like hot cake! However it is still in good condition after 9 years.

Yes, it is in good condition and the new owners should get a lot more years out of it.

A very charming swing. We once got a bench looks a bit like that. God knows where it is now...

I thought about asking $30 for it but wanted to sell it fast so I figured 20 would do the trick.

It's good that you got the old swing sold so fast. I would be happy to get the nice wooden swing with just $20 too. Yes, it'd be nice not to just throw our old and still usable stuff, but to make some money from it.

Yes, I think keeping things out of the landfill while making a few dollars is a good thing.

The person can sand and stain the swing and it will look good as new. $20 is really a good deal.

I would have nabbed that one for $20. But, then the problem of where we would put it. Our porch roof wouldn't hold it. Love a porch swing though and I would like to have one someday! We use Facebook to sell off our things we no longer need. Also we use it to find things we need as well. At present time we are unable to afford new furnishings and used ones are more affordable. We just purchased a used dresser for $20. The top drawer doesn't slide in smoothly, but otherwise it is in good condition. Can't beat the price.
