Is there any way to ensure a Craigslist sale is legit for an item I want to purchase in another city?

There's an antique item that's being listed for sale in Boca Raton, and I really really want it. The price is reasonable and the seller seems on the up&up (sent me some extra photos when I asked for them). Problem: I'm in West Virginia, & Craigslist always says "deal locally" and not to deal with fake escrow (smart advice). Is there *any* way to purchase this item without running the risk of a scam?
