Here you go, here’s an expensive crib set what includes a crib with a drop side (which means it slides up and down) which you can’t sell in the United States anymore.
But can you sell it used on Craigslist? No. Hell no.
Check it, straight from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Loophole alert: Are you allowed to sell this crib not as a crib but as a convertible child’s bed?
Loophole alert: Are you allowed to throw away the drop side and sell the crib as a daybed, thusly?
“Beautiful, high quality solid wood Morigeau-Lepine crib converted to toddler day bed. Originally purchased for 850.00. Attached picture is of original drop-side crib which is now banned in the U.S. Drop side piece is not included in this sale to avoid possible danger.”
I don’t know. Maybe.
But what I do know is that you can’t sell drop side cribs no mo, even on Craigslist.
And yet people try to do that on Craigslist each and every day.
Just saying, ma’am.
What should you buy instead? How about a Sniglar* from IKEA? It costs just $69 (and it certainly looks like it costs just $69.)
And it will not impress any rich ladies in Russian Hill or anywhere else.
But, the Sniglar, she is legal, and that’s the thing.
Sorry for the hassle. Thank you, drive through.
