i've spent the past few days emailing people about their strollers, baby bjorn carriers, car seats, stroller and car seat combos and jogging strollers. i've learned about stroller brands, read reviews, and have perfected my questioning.
strollers are really the item of choice on craigslist, i've discovered. there about about 10 - 15 new postings a day. if you're not on top of things, they're gone immediately. the other evening i found this great looking jogging stroller for $60 and i email the person and say i can come by the next day after work. the next morning, i get the reply that that would be great and to call her for the address. so during my prep a couple hours later, i call to get the address only to find out that someone else bought the stroller that morning. what? yesterday afternoon, two new strollers that i wanted were posted. i emailed them both and said that i could come the following evening to buy them. (yes, i wanted both of them) this morning i get an email from one of them saying that they sold it last night. oh my goodness. so frustrating. anyways - probably too many details BUT getting to the point...this afternoon there was a new stroller with car seat and base for $100! i saw this model at the Bay the other weekend for $450 +! i emailed and said i could come immediately and to call me. it felt a little pushy but apparently this was the way things needed to be.
got the call at 6pm and by 7:30pm we are the owners of a new Eddie Bauer stroller and car seat. it looks like it has been barely used. woohoo! so when craigslist comes through - it's great!
maybe you were wishing you could see some pictures? haha - well, whether you were or not...
the car seat
and the two together.
so new that there were pieces still in original, unopened packages!
