To cure boredom during my last long Christmas break, I’ve been perusing Craigslist to find furniture for the apartment I will (hopefully!) be moving into in May. When hunting, I usually search direct store names that I’m hoping to find goods from, like “Ikea”, “West Elm”, or “Pottery Barn”.

So, I popped in “Ikea”, and this popped out….

Two Ikea EKTORP TULLSTA chairs for $50?!?!

I quickly emailed the seller because this was just too good to be true. For reference, the Ikea website lists them as retailing…

….$129 A PIECE!

Yes, kids, that’s a savings of over $100 a chair. This was a deal I just couldn’t pass up! The seller lived a mere 20 minutes down the road, so my stepmom and I drove our little SUV up there to fetch these two beauties.

I was scared that the seller would be some creepy serial killer because CRAIGSLIST, but he was totally nice and normal! The chairs were pristine and pretty darn comfy for Ikea products. We carted them home and I now walk into the spare bedroom twice daily to sit in them and admire them.


I plan on reviewing these chairs soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
