I noted the location and pulled up the Craigslist for that area, and lo and behold there it was. Emailed the seller, didn't hear back, called the seller, and she said she just really didn't want to ship. Pulled up FB and looked at the friends I have in that state. Mapquested the directions and found out one of them was close enough for a pick up. Posted on my FB page for volunteers in that area who would be willing to do me a favor. The FB friend immediately responded that she was in the area, so I PMed her the info. Called the saddle lady back, Paypalled the $$$ to my FB friend, and as soon as the funds are available she's going to go pick up the saddle (seller wants cash) and ship it to me.
Oh, and for anyone worrying about me Paypalling $$$ to a random FB friend, I've known her for YEARS and trust her completely.
