I've seen a number of these adds as well. There are a large number of dealers popping-up around the Dallas-Ft. Worth area with "Rustic Wood Furniture". I noticed these stores or road side shops several years ago. All the furniture looks the same. No one particular store has a unique piece of it's own. I have noticed that the adds or flyers and even thier in store order books show pieces that are well assembled and look nice...the pieces are "picture perfect". However, the showroom floor pieces are sometimes jagged, crooked, etc making them look very cheap and just thrown together. This could be the difference between actual furniture "STORE" and furniture "ROAD SIDE or TENT" vendors. It could be just sloppy assembly by their employees. I still have yet to buy any of these pieces. If you don't mind the drive or want to get away for a weekend, there are some reputable vendors in Canton, Texas at the First Monday Trades Days. They tend to be a bit more expensive but they also want to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase. The trades day is the weekend before the first Monday of every month. You can get there as early as Thursdays. I guess the main point I would make is to not buy any of the pieces before you see them first.

Uncle Larry ran out on paying his rent to me. Fly-by-night operation obviously.

I have a friend that bought a beautiful dining room table, chairs, and the cushions for next to nothing. I am going to look into bed side tables.

I bought a lovely dining room table & chair set from him and he delivered to Lubbock in February. Even with delivery it was considerably cheaper than what I could get here in town. I love my set and was interested in a buffet. However, he has cut back and is not delivering anymore.

WARNING! The guy breaks every rule on Craigslist. He lists in multiple markets(Wichita Falls, Waco, Abilene, Tyler) by using different email addresses....NOT ALLOWED. He lists as "for sale by OWNER" rather than "by DEALER"...probably to fly under the State Comptroller's radar since he also tells his customers "no sales tax"....CROOKED. He toplists his ads regularly to keep them on the first page rather than letting them run for 30 days....ALSO NOT ALLOWED. Are you seeing a pattern here? Deal with honest people honestly and you will seldom be dissapointed. Deal with dishonest people honestly and you will eventually regret it. FLAG HIS ADS and get his crooked butt off Craigslist.

I have bought several items from Uncle Larry and am always happy not just with the prices but the quality as well. If I can find his number I will buy from him again! If any one has his number please post it so I can get more furniture!
