Good Questions: How Do I Find Furniture on Craigslist?

AT:SF, I notice that a lot of people on the site and in the comments indicate that they find their furniture on Craigslist. Do you know how this is done? Do people have specific pieces that they search for everyday? Is there some automated way to watch for postings for specfic styles or types of furniture? Or, do they just log on to Craiglist everyday and see what furniture has been posted? What is the general methodology for this?

Thanks,

Jim

Jim,

When we search Craiglist, either personally or for Scavenger, we use keywords. But keep in mind that sometimes people don't know what they're selling so you may have to come up with some "alternative" keywords, too.

The folks over at our Boston site gave some tips last month -- check out their post here.

Anyone else have tips for Jim?
