If I had a desk belonging to the only President of the United States to resign, I probably wouldn’t want to sell it.
If I did want to sell it, I probably would use a high-end auction house. I probably would not put it on Craigslist.
And if I did put it on Craigslist, I’d probably put “NIXON’S DESK!!!!!” in the headline — all in CAPS, with plenty of exclamation points!!!!!
I’m just sayin’.
But right there on the New York Craigslist is this:
Gorgeous mahogany desk — $1450 (Westport)
And the photo:
But not until you read the text do you find (verbatim):
Mahogany desk. Spectacular.
This desk was president Nixons. I do not have a certificate of authenticity. But if you are interested and come see the desk I would be more than happy to tell you the story.
It’s 72″ x 36″ x 30″. The condition is “like new.”
And here’s the Craigslist map, showing where it’s located:
If an “06880” reader ends up with Nixon’s desk, please let us know.
And if you spot any Spiro Agnew furniture for sale on Craigslist, tell us too.
