How do You Search for Furniture on Craigslist?

As I mentioned on Monday, I have a new apartment. (I promise I won't bore you with too many posts about it, but it's on my mind this week.) And because it's larger than my old space, and I'm moving in with a new person, we have to get a lot of new furniture with out spending all of our savings.

In the past, I've really only used Craigslist to find apartments—never to find furniture. I did started browsing over the weekend, but short of just scanning the furniture by owner page, I don't really have a strategy.

Have you ever purchased furniture on Craigslist? If so, do you have any tips for finding great deals?

I would also love to see your best Craigslist finds. Upload them to our RealSimple.com Flickr group, and then share the link in the comments, or just add the tag "Craigslist finds."

I did come across one gem in my search, this 1940's vanity. Beautiful, right? See the listing here.
