Coase's List-->NEW LOW!

I thought $700 was a bit high for a used matress, so I decided to actually read the email. Here you go:


From: Anon
To: Coase's List (NYU Law's version of Craig's List)
Subject: Luxurious, Brand New Mattress & Box Spring - $700 OBO

Relisting... new, lower price!

Two-week old Simmons Beautyrest Full-sized pillow top mattress with boxspring - the same one as the Westin uses for its luxurious "Heavenly Bed," -for sale, $1000 original price (plus shipping if you order from the Westin).

We purchased this two weeks ago and it is the wrong level of softness for me (though my partner adores it and is bitter that it's going away) and wecan't return it. It's in brand-new condition - totally clean and the tagsare even still on it. $700 OBO.

Here's the skinny on the Westin Heavenly Bed're in Park Slope, and may be able to work something out with delivery.


A couple of things- 1) I've always wondered who purchased the on-sale items from a hotel room's furniture 2) Park Slope, BIG surprise there 3) I declare a Fatwa on the term "partner."
