Yup that table was FREE & it was our first Kijiji find
also has two inserts so expands to sit up to 12 people!
As for the resto chairs, originally I wanted Eames-inspired chairs but although Eames tulip chairs are stylish not so comfortable.
Brand new factory surplus sofa, score!!
There are two items I will not buy used:
sofas & mattresses, as this was new major deal!
This was my latest find and the hardest. As I didn't want a match-y bedroom set most furniture stores will not sell dressers separately, surprisingly neither on kijiji. This was many nights of research!
Here are a few Kijiji tips:
(1) Time & Patience: I found there was not one particular day to find amazing items. Originally, the idea was weekends were best but all the above items were found during the week. So perhaps less traffic!
(2) Contact info: its so easy to contact the seller. There is an email feature with each item!
(3) Watch: Not sure about an item, just watch it! Watch, is a feature indicated by a star. Just click on it & go back to it later. But you don't want to wait too long because its all about first come first serve. I didn't score all my Kijiji finds as I was late in replying to the ads.
(4) Access: Have access to a MiniVan or SUV. This is where friends come in handy. So beer is good to have around too, for after the delivery of course!
