got flagstone?

I still have 1/2 to 2/3 ton of 'native patio' flagstone sitting in the driveway. It's been there nearly a month now. I've been thinking about selling it on Craigslist, but I have yet to list it. In my experience, two things are certain when listing items on Craigslist:
1. There will be multiple responses to the listing, one of which will end in a successful transition;
2. At least two-thirds of the responses will be from complete and utter nut jobs who won't return messages, want to come by at odd hours and never show, may or may not have cash payment, call or email multiple times with questions about even the simplest item, insist on trying to dicker down a bargain-basement price, etc. all which will make you think twice about Craiglist the next time you need to get rid of something.

I mean, do I really want to deal with that on a Memorial Day weekend? Not really.

So I still have the flagstone. If you live in Austin and need less than a ton of flagstone, shoot me a message and make me an offer. Factoring in sales tax + delivery fees, I paid $160 a ton for it, but I am a 'very motivated seller' who'd much rather deal with a groovy Austin garden blogger than yer typical Craigslister.


  1. You should mention it on the Google Group, Caroline. You might reach more Austin garden bloggers that way.

  2. Of course! Why didn't I think of that??
