Sacramento CA: Mission sofa, $175

More a sofa than a settle, the owners of this sturdy piece want only $175 for it. Personally, I'd put a slipcover on it or reupholster, but you really can't beat $175 if it's in as good shape as it looks. If you're in or near Sacramento, this looks like a great deal. I'm trying vainly to pare my own cluttered house down, or else I'd take it myself!
