Ikea classifieds

Well, if you’re thinking of offloading your used Ikea furniture, you gotta get creative. Like how this guy did. He demonstrates the multi-uses of Ikea trestles with the finesse of gymnast. Thank you Ashli for sending me the ad. Too funny.

I’m not sure if the legs are still available but if you are in the market for a pair, you gotta get them from him. Hop over to craigslist now.

Talking about classifieds ads, have you seen Ikea Nation? It’s kinda like craigslist but dedicated to all things Ikea. Wunderbar. It’s free too. Woohoo! At a glance the navigation looks good with searches by categories or States (US only, unfortunately for me). The prices looks even better. Spotted a Mikael computer desk going for $60 (new, $109) and a Karlstad Loveseat going for $0. Zilch. Nada. Sounds like the place to score your next Ikea hacking items.

Anyone have any experience buying or selling on it? Do share with us.

    I did a search and can’t find Ikea Nation. Can you share the URL, or at least send me a link? I’d appreciate it.

  3. As a tip, on our website we have loads of IKEA classifieds.

    This ad is from CL Seattle and I recall coming across it not long ago… I actually responded to tell the seller that he’d elicited the first real laugh I’d had all day (also voted it “best of Craig’s List”)! Too funny. Thanks for posting.
