I hope you’re all easing into the week and doing well. If not, these Cray-Cray-Crazy Craigslist ads should hopefully give you a laugh or two. I posted some of the crazy Craigslist posts I found here, and The List of Craig does not disappoint.
Where should I begin? Well, I think we can break it down into a few themes. Let’s start with, “Get the heck out of the picture”. Confused? Fear not.
Apparently, these sellers thought that potential buyers might benefit from seeing them knocking back a few
dozen drinks with their friends.
Is that a tire I’m seeing in the bottom left hand corner of this photo? I wonder if they would throw that in to seal the deal?
If the drinking party didn’t sell you, the description might:
Lots of mirrors available on Craigslist too, – but what’s most entertaining is what they’re reflecting…
A big mirror with a big goofus who apparently didn’t think that he needed to wear a shirt when taking a photo of his FSBO mirror. Or maybe he thinks he’s invisible…
This young lady appears to be taking a nap and/or charging her phone/texting to snap a shot of this mirror that she’s trying to sell. Again, check out the caption – who is big sandy? Mirror Mafioso perhaps?
And this one just struck me as funny. Really? A camper? Perhaps that’s why it’s for sale – there’s just nowhere to put this lovely mirror in the camper…
Now You See Me, Now You Don’t
And then there’s this batch of folks who made an attempt to remove themselves and/or their friends from their Craiglist ads. I’m no Photoshop guru, but I think taking a second photo sans people might have been a wee bit more effective. Judge for yourself.
I give this seller some credit for at least trying to match the pink bedspread. Not sure what the big black blob at the end of the bed is. Not sure I want to speculate either.
This one almost made me spit out my drink. I’m not sure I can make out what they’re selling here with all of the, um, editing that was done.
And a big thank you to Pam, one of my readers, who sent me this Craiglist gem. Are you tired of the antler trend and want something different? Here it is – a gator mount, for a mere $2000. A new spin on taxidermy. Be a trendsetter!
Hope you enjoyed these as much as I did, and if you have a crazy Craigslist ad to share, send it my way!

At least the guy selling the mirror wasn't wearing tighty whiteys!

I look at Craig's List every day and see many pics similar to these. Where's all the good stuff? I'm still hoping. 🙂
