How Far Would You Drive for a Craigslist Find?

no, this is not our find
The other day we drove about an hour and a half (round trip) to buy something we found on Craigslist. (And unfortunately, we then brought it home and discovered it was a dumb purchase. Tip: Do not buy things when you're sick.) On the way home, we remembered a quick trip we took to Sacramento to pick up a Tulip Table, and we wondered: How far would you drive for a Craigslist find?

Flea markets like Alameda are different, they're more of an adventure, and you can make a day of it. And we've heard of people making a long trek to IKEA. But for something on Craigslist? Do tell.
