I'm sure this has been covered before, but let's do it again for giggles.  ;D

Small items always outside on a curb with lots of people around.

Large items in a parking lot where there are people, like an auto shop or something like that.

I give people my home address. So far I havent ran into the craigslist killer. There are plenty of cons to doing this, but a few of the pros: Instills confidence in the buyer knowing where the seller lives, as well as I can show off my other items for sell, usually making additional income.

I've been meeting at my home.



With a gun in my pocket.

LOL - I've never really thought about doing that. But I'm a trusting / happy go lucky kind of guy (which is probably really naive I might add.) Does anyone else keep a gun on them when meeting people at their house?

If it was just me I wouldn't care, but with a wife and two kids, I want to be cautious.

I don't blame you. You never know what people's intentions are. Better to be safe than sorry.
