Hello John,
Yes the item is still available. The price is $ 80. I hope you are aware that I am in California. If you are still interested in the item I would be more than happy to make arrangments for the sale. Please know I have others who have contacted me about the item also, so I need to know if you are seriously interested ASAP.

To answer your questions
Yes I am the real owner. I purchased the item last December (2007), and she never really used it. As for the condition: It is in great condition. As I mentioned to you before, my daughter hardly used the dollhouse. It comes with origianl accessories. Fully assembled. I will not be able to take the dollhouse apart, so any shipping arrangments you make will have to be for the item as it is which is approx. 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide.

The price is $ 80.00 and you would have to pay me the estimated shipping cost, so I could ship it to you.

Please let me know if you are still interested : )


Thank you this sound good to me, The reason for sending you this email is to make final reconfirmation. Regarding the shipping, I have a Shipper Agent that takes care of the pickup of my consignments for me and ship to my destination in Lutz Florida.

More so, you will be receiving an overdraft Cashier’s Check from my Associate which will cover the money for the pickup of all my consignments that has already being in transit with my shipping agent and the sale cost, then they will also be coming for your own pick up. So as soon as you received the Check and pay the check into your account, then deduct the money that is meant for the sale of the item and then you effect the balance to the shipper Agent that handles the shipment this should be sent to the shipper by Money Gram Transfer/ Western Union.

Below details needed for issuing the Cashier’s Check.

(1) Your Full Name
(2) Mailing address City,State,Zip Code, no please
(3) Your direct telephone number both home and cell.?
{4} Acceptance of my offer
(5) Last price as prescribed on craigslist:

Once I have the details, the payment will be issued out on Monday by my Associate and tracking number will be given to you. Hope to read from you immediately you received this email.

I will also offer you an extra $ 20 for keeping the purchase for me till the shipper comes for the pick up and take the sale off the advert.

I will be looking forward to your swift response.

Best Regards,
John .
