    Yes I have, its the only way I sell on Craigslist. In my opinon, Craigslist it the best site to sell stuff on, the buyer comes to you and you dont have to pay for shipping. I usually send emails back and forth with a potential buyer before giving them my address when the seem to be a serious buyer. (If you are uncomfortable giving your address, meet at a public place.) When they arrive, I greet them and introduce myself (after confirming theyre the buyer). I then proceed to show them the product that im selling and I basically repeat what I wrote on Craiglist, descirbing it. I remind them of the price and either they say ok and buy it, try to talk the price down or they say no and leave. Thats all I do. Good luck

    • Yes, I suggest NOT to do it. Lets be honest, the people that shop on Craigslist are NOT trust worthy. I only sold two things off of Craigslist: 1) couch and chair-I was moving so they came to my home and 2) was a computer-I asked extensive questions to the buyer. Turns out it was a Mexican guy buying a computer for his child. I kept a weapon on me in either case. JUST TO BE SAFE. IT's Better safe than sorry. Right? I would do it again too. Just KEEP A WEAPON. I'm serious too.

    • No, but I've met a lot of people who've come to pick up stuff I've put up on Freecycle. It always has been fine. Nobody comes into the house, you take the item and exchange it/sell it outside on your porch.
