Selling local on Kijiji has been extremely frustrating. About 90% of the locals who contacted me have no money and only want to trade. Then there is the idiot or two, that just spend their time harassing me and what I am selling. They actually placed ads, which I and several others got Kijiji to remove.
I was extremely happy to get a dozen offers from out of town, but long distance Kijiji is not easy or recommended.
I did meet the right guy from Montreal, and he was cautious and unsure; as he should be. Phone calls, texting, emails with pictures, and showing him this forum with my credibility; we made a deal. Not only did he buy the one guitar that I advertised; he also bought another. That was about 2 weeks ago.
I went to the Dr. today, and when I came home there was a large, heavy, parcel at the front door from the buyer. I opened it up and found a 750 ml bottle of award winning, Ultra Premium Pur Vodka, micro distilled in Montreal, (in a wooden gift case).
I promptly sent him a thank you for this unexpected gift, and promptly received a message back thanking me for making something possible for him, that really meant something to him.
A few weeks back, I felt good knowing that the guitars were going to the right guy, who would appreciate them. That kind of made my day, for about a week.
Today, I truly feel, that sometimes the right person comes along, and everything just works out for everyone involved. I am honoured, and truly appreciate the generous gesture from my new friend in Montreal.
