Should I Trade My New Sofa for a Used Vintage One?

Good Questions

Q: I recently purchased the Morgan Sofa from World Market for about $300, on sale, for my new studio apartment. I really wanted the Urban Outfitters Ava sleeper, but it is not in my budget. This past weekend I came across a beautiful used sofa that is more my style at the local Salvation Army.

I posted my sofa on Craigslist but I have yet to find someone to purchase it. My question is, am I crazy for trading my new sofa on craigslist for a used one from the Salvation Army?
