I need an opinion on this

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I posted on Craigslist looking for a couch, this lady responded and said I could have her couch and loveseat for $150 (I think she said they were lazyboy). I wrote back and said that something came up (dental for Ruby, more expensive than I expected!) and she said if I picked them up I could have them for free. I'm not sure, what do you guys think? They look a bit like they might have a dip and it's a bit over an hour to go get them. The couch I have now needs to be tossed but I dont want to end up with something else that's junk. She did say the springs are fine. Although I do have, seven cats and dogs that sleep on the couch so it doesnt have to be perfect. Argh, I just don't know what to do! I'd have to ask my neighbor to go with me which would be weird but I'm not going to some strangers house alone.

They look fine to me. My inlaws have a similar sofa that's a La-Z-Boy.

The one side of the love seat looks a little funny but it could just be the light. The couch looks fine. I'd go for it... can't beat the price.

Lazy Boy is quality stuff so even if it's old it should be good. We have 2 lazy boy chairs that are 22 years old. We just had them re-upholstered and it was still less than what it would cost for brand new ones. I'd go for it myself even if you have to cover them.

Hubby had a set just like this when I met him! Very durable with 4 gross 20 something boys jumping, drinking, spilling, etc. all over them . Oh that brings me back...

If you're worried about stains or anything (although these look VERY clean) pre-made slip covers are pretty cheap when you get them on sale.

I like em to tell you the truth

Sounds like the woman really wants to get rid of them, maybe she's getting new stuff or moving or something like that.

They look ok to me too. And you can't beat the price!

My brother has the exact same set. His are very comfortable. They clean up nice with a steam cleaner too. You can't beat the price. I would get them

No harm in looking at them. I'm sure there's some wear and tear, but even for $150...or free in this case, you have to expect some.

Also, they make those inserts for couches if they have dips and stuff. Check one of those Lillian Moore? catalogs...

I can't she wants to get rid of those! I'd be all over them!

Thanks guys! I e-mailed her back and said I'd like to pick them up Saturday, hopefully that will work for her since it's my only day off. Thanks for the opinions!!
