This week was my Birthday!
Yes folks, I turned 29 yet again.  I've celebrated almost twenty 29th Birthdays!
Guess next Birthday I should be turning 30.
This was for sale on Kijiji and hopefully will be coming home
with me as my Birthday present.

Sorry about the wonky pics but that's the way
it is on the ad and I don't know how to rotate them.

You get the idea

In order to fit the 'New" corner cabinet into my home
my 'Old' corner cabinet must go!
So I've listed it for sale on Kijiji because I've used the site so
often to purchase items. 
But NEVER to sell something
And now I understand why some sellers are so
particular when you make contact with them about an item.
You come across the most 'bizarre' people when selling something.
There seems to be interest and then they just disappear.  Or they make
an appointment to come and view the piece but then
they just don't show up!
Hmph ... like I don't have anything better to do with my time!
Wish me luck with my sale and I hope you all have
a great weekend!

Cheers ~ Lisa


  1. Happy Birthday, Lisa! That is a wonderful cabinet and I just know it's going to look splendid in its new home. Can't to see it all set up and filled with your treasures! Thanks for visiting and have a delightful weekend.


  2. Ah, welcome to the world of Kijiji! I, personally, love it. I've sold many items, and purchased a few as well. I will be making a couple of posts, hopefully sometime next week, about several Kijiji "finds". But, I also, have discovered that many people pull the disappearing act on Kijiji. I've been "stood" up several times myself. One thing I have learned, the hard way, is to never agree to hold something for someone! Because, then you take the real risk of losing other potential buyers. Now, I inform anyone who requests it be held, why I will not hold it. I haven't had anyone tell me off yet, lol!

    And, gosh, if I lived near you, I'd make you an offer on your cabinet! I have a similar cabinet in my livingroom that I'm looking to paint in the Spring. Yours would save me some work!

    I wish you much success, both with your birthday gift, and by the way, Happy Birthday, and with the sale of your current cabinet.

  3. Happy Happy Birthday LIsa!!!! :D I LOVE that green cupboard- oh it is gorgeous!!! Yes- go get it NOW! lol! Good luck with selling too- it is always fun to deal with selling furniture on sites like that!

  4. Happy Birthday you are just a kid! I love your Birthday PresentCannot wait to see it filled with your treasures~ ox

  5. Happy birthday, Lisa! I hope you get that great cabinet! I like the green...but am curious to see if you decide paint it! I have never heard of Kijiji until today! I am assuming it's like Craigslist? I must go check it out! Have a wonderful weekend! Good luck selling your curio!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,

  6. I adore your new cabinet! Happy Birthday indeed!!!

  7. Happy Birthday!!! Love your new cabinet....what a great birthday gift!!!! Good luck with selling your old piece too! Have a great weekend :o)

    PS. I am now following you on Google...hope you will
    follow me back :o)

  8. Happy Belated Birthday, Lisa! I keep turning 29 again and again, too:) Your new cabinet is amazing. I've not heard of Kijiji, sounds like our Craig's List here. I just sold a dresser today as a matter of fact that I listed on CL, and I know just what you mean about running into all sorts of people that way!!

  9. Hope you had a wonderful birthday, Lisa! I love the cabinet and look forward to seeing it when you're done.

  10. I love your new piece. Especially the arched door.

  11. The green cabinet is so beautiful. I love the scroll work and the curved glass. Never heard of this site-those pesky buyers who don't show are just not nice!!!!! I'm sure it will awesome in its new home.

  12. Well first off ~ ♫Happy Birthday♫ dear friend! I hope it's the most creative & inspirational year ever!
    Both cabinets are simply gorgeous (but I can see why you love the green one!) and I've never heard of Kiiji so am off to check that out...
