Hey, everyone! Thanks for checking out my new blog. As you read in my profile, I just thought it’d be fun to share some of my favorite web pages with everyone.
This time I’m profiling CraigsList at http://saltlakecity.craigslist.org/. This site is really cool. Think browsing the classifieds, but with pictures and email addresses. You can search the Salt Lake area (or any other area) for anything from used furniture (my personal favorite) to pets to event tickets. For fun, I thought I’d show some of the great deals…some cool, some totally wacky. For example (these are actual posts, minus the pictures):
“This couch was purchased at RC Willey for $875.00 and we are selling of for $215.00. It is in great condition, scotch-guarded, extremely comfortable, appealing to the eye, and all pillows and blanket accessories included. I love this couch, but unfortunatley it has to go.”
“NEW TABLE AND CHAIRS. NOT EVEN A YEAR OLD! SIX CHAIRS, GLASS TABLE. GREAT CONDITION. PAID 600$. WILLING TO EXCEPT ANY OFFERS.”
“I have a hardly used, in great condition Lasonic Surround Sound System for your TV. It has 5 speakers, sub-woofer, control panel, and a box that allows you to switch between your tv, vcr, and dvd player. Also plays MP3s. Asking $45 OBO.”
Some of the wacky things I’ve seen: Sombreros, pizzeria equipment, a 1950’s refrigerator, and
“Soviet Union uniform unit identification epaulets. These are great conversational items and can be attached to any clothing item. Get one or both packages for 4.50 each. I personally purchased these items in the former Soviet Union not long after its break up. I also have Soviet Uniform buttons take your pick at $0.50 each. How about a Soviet Military Cap badge only $5.00.”
Check out Craigslist!! One thing to keep in mind, okay, two…most of the good stuff goes fast, so reply to the seller asap and new things are constantly being posted, so check back often.
Let me know what you think of one of my favorite web pages!!
