I put several items on Craigslist yesterday.
I have multiple people interested in all of the items.
The guy that was supposed to come by today at 4pm to look at the sofa and chair did not show up. Didn't call or nothing.
Since I have four or five other people who are interested in these items, is it my responsibility to contact him and give him a 2nd chance? or just go on to the next person in line and set up a time for them to come over and check it out.....
I'm trying to get rid of this stuff by this weekend since the new stuff is being delivered Saturday and I won't have any room to put it, so time is of the essence here.

NO WAY would I be trying to contact him and give him a 2nd chance!! You have no contract with him, you owe him absolutely nothing. And he wasted your time by not even showing. You go ahead and sell it and do what you need to do.

If he didn't show up, it's his loss. Move on to the next person.

I'm with the others. There is no way I would contact him. The only time I have sold on Craigslist, I just say the first one to show up with cash gets it.
