Does this ad look okay? Any suggestions?

I put Libby's sleeping cage on Craig's List and eBay Classifieds. Do you guys think it looks okay? It cost $160 new last April.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I tried to view the link and its not available any longer. Did you sell that quickly? I'm proud if you for not filling the empty with a new bird! That's what I would have done!

No, I haven't sold it. I'm not sure it's active yet -- in "manage my ads" it says "in progress". This works differently than regular eBay.
I tried searching for it, but it doesn't show up, which makes me think it's not active.

I posted a different link above, would you see if it works for you? When I click on it, I get taken to my ad, but it may be because it's my ad!

All very confusing!

My status says the ad is "active" now. The ad i.d. number is 10422498. Hopefully the link above will work now!

Thanks for any suggestions!

Thanks for taking a look at it! I hope it sells fast too -- that way I can eliminate the temptation to FILL IT with another bird!!!

I've got a lady who lives only a couple of miles away, coming over in a few minutes to take a look for her baby Cockatiel. Hopefully it's sold!

SOLD! To a very nice lady who lives only a few miles from us. She loved the cage, so we're both happy!

Julie - Have I tempted you????? Tee Hee! Libby just loves her new cage, it's working out really well for her. She uses all the space too. She really likes that drop down platform at the top front of the cage! As soon as she sees me getting newspaper to put on the floor underneath it (for the poos!) she runs up to the top and waits for me to open it! And I absolutely love that BIG door, I have her cage cleaned so quickly!

The lady who bought her small sleeping cage today saw Libby and her new cage, and thought she had a wonderful setup. She said, "That looks like a castle for a princess!" Guess that's why it's called "Conure Castle"!

I know it cost a lot more than my HQ cages, but if my baby is happy, I'm happy!
