Eileen and I were looking at craigslist yesterday, and we stumbled upon the “free” listings. For those who don’t know, craigslist is an online classified ad site that’s free to use. I was on it yesterday since I’m going to try selling our older computers before doing the ebay thing, which usually involves shipping.
The craigslist free section has some pretty funny stuff on it — toilets, dwarf bunnies, big screen tvs, hostas. The list goes on.
We were pretty amazed reading through all the offerings. But by far the best one was the “kick-ass cement block entertainment center and computer desk.” The sales pitch was this: “Free to whoever the hell wants to come get them, decentish computer desk, and a cement block entertainment center (OK, it’s 7 blocks, with a 2’x4′ sheet of plywood on top, with 2 smaller blocks and a 2’x2′ plywood square on it for the TV). The plywood is Birch, and still looks kinda nice.”
