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 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.
