Craigslist is just one of those things that never ceases to amaze. It’s so versatile. Tickets, trinkets, home rentals — if you can think of it, you can probably get it on Craigslist. Don’t get me wrong though — it’s creepy, poorly designed and can actually be quite dangerous to use.
But the utility that it provides is flat-out ridiculous.
Which is why I spent 3 hours scouring the site for the most fascinating things that are actually for sale on Minneapolis Craigslist right now. They may or may not get taken down at any time, so don’t get your britches in a bunch if you come up empty. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
(1) Vintage Nordic Track Ski Machine – $50
Raise your hand if your parents had one of these about 20 years ago. Quite possibly one of the most challenging workout systems to figure out how to use — why wouldn’t you want one taking up half of your apartment?!?
(2) Center Console for Chevy Van – $65
Anyone out there own a Chevy Van from the 90s? How’s that center console of yours looking? Not so good, huh? Well you’re in luck, because boy have I got a deal for you!
(3) Oversized Shoe Rack for Walk-In Closet – (price not disclosed)
Make every day feel like you just bought a new pair of shoes with this official shoe store display!
(4) American Guinea Hogs – $85
Owning a pig would be really fun. Watch out, though — these grow to be 150 – 300 lbs. Might want to check with your landlord before making this impulse buy.
(5) Mark Martin NASCAR Jacket – $100
Only $100? Are you kidding me? I’ll be the Viagra poster child if all it costs is one Benjamin. Added bonus: If you leave the jacket unsnapped, it even looks misspelled! Important Question: Does this mean someone is going to pay their own money to advertise 8+ large brands that they have no connection to whatsoever? #TotallyWorthIt.
(6) Vending Machine – $400
Just think of all the applications for this. If I had unlimited time to screw around and unlimited money to screw around with, I would definitely pull the trigger on this gem.
(7) Vikings Golf Cart – $2100
Shut the front door. It has a 4″ lift kit. Seriously, just read the description. Whoever created this treasure is a hero.
(8) Vintage 1962 Yellowstone Glamper Camper “Lady Rose” – $10,000
She sure is a beauty. And yes, in case you were wondering, I already verified — the rug is included.
I’ve got one condition: I will take it as long as you throw in the Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup and it better be vintage, too.
Think we missed something spectacular? Let us know.
