Maybe the electrical outlet is too distracting. I would give this photo a 'B'. I also had a few close-ups attached to the ad. My description went something like this:
Shabby Chic side table. Features beautiful leather-like insert and a handy cubby for storing books, magazines or a basket.
I included the measurements and $30.00 cash price tag.
Not one bite! I had multiple inquiries on the other side table and sold it right away. So, I had two options. One, lower the price. Two, change the wording and try again. I already had a lot invested with the walking next door in the dark and hauling it into the house. Plus hiring my husband to paint it for free. So you can understand why I had to charge the full 30 bucks. The change I made to the ad was minimal:
Madmen meets Shabby Chic, side table. Features beautiful leather-like insert and a handy cubby for storing books, magazines or a basket.
Boom! Four people wanted it! Boom!
I just love selling crap on Craigslist! My sister and I have an idea for selling chairs on Craigslist! Coming soon!
