As always with craigslist, you’ll need to wade carefully through those grays areas to really determine if you’re getting a good deal or not. In this case, the smoking gun here is the condition description as “Two Years-old.” Kelly Blue Book and Beckett Monthly tell us that 2011 Breast pumps in mint condition should sell for well north of $25 dollars. But, any chap who’s lived with a nursing mother can tell you that two years in the life of a breast pump is an eternity. This pump probably has more stories than a veteran that has spent a night in a Southeast Asian jungle. And we haven’t even tackled what kind of terrain we’re dealing with here. We all know that no two peaks are the same. Some are tall and smooth, while others are short and craggy. Breast pumps don’t get to choose their terrain.
Verdict: Unless this women is firm (pun intended) on her price, you may want to hold out for a pump with less mileage to hit the open market.
