How do you know people didn't buy some beat up piece of crap item, fix it up, and then sell it for a profit. I don't see the problem with that. I know many people who go to thrift stores looking for "steals" I knew a guy who had a vast knowledge of books. He used to scope out the thrift stores to find the scores and then re-sell them. Same with a woman who new a lot about collectible plates. Another person I know has some knowledge about designer clothing labels. She'll find this clothing and sell it on Ebay(she won't do coats or other items that are more of a necessity for people). Most of the time it's to people overseas who don't have access to these clothes or people who don't have access to thrift stores like we do. Also, thrift stores are their to make money for their respective charities. It's not just there for people who can't afford things. If that was the case, then anyone who purchased something from a thrift store who could afford full price(new) items are a dick.
Same thing with your stove. Like you said, you could have sold it but you didn't. As soon as you put it on the curb it was fair game. If I found and old chair on the curb and refinished it and then sold it, am I a dick too? If someone buys the stove you put out and it turns out to be a piece of shit, well, that's their fault. It's Craigs list and buyer beware. If someone doesn't realize that, they shouldn't be buying on Craig's list.
