Craigslist has helped millions of shoppers find and purchase items easily and conveniently. It connects sellers with buyers and safely enables the exchange of money from one hand to another. Some of the most obvious things on Craigslist are electronics, books, furniture, clothes, accessories, and home improvement fittings.
While we all expect to see and meet the ordinary, it is good to leave room for surprises. People will try to have a sense of humour online and offline. They will post bizarre items for sale online that will leave you bewildered. Sellers perhaps feel a strong urge to pass their items and products to the next generation.
Are you shopping for your children’s clothes or for your pet’s food? You may be a straightforward shopper. However, it does not hurt to browse through some very disturbing lists. Whether you are going to buy them or not, these will surely tickle your funny bone.
When you read these ads for jobs, services, and items, you cannot help but wonder how these ended up in the platform in the first place. Although you may never know the intention of the people posting, you will be amazed by the range of things you can buy on Craigslist in Las Vegas.
You have definitely heard the phrase “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Secrets of the popular entertainment spot should remain there. However, we break that norm today by presenting you with items sold on Vegas Craigslist that evoke wonder, are bizarre, and outrightly crazy. Here are the top 10 listed Craigslist Las Vegas wonders.
1. Really big old delivery vans
Are you planning to start a pizza café or a shop that delivers goods to customers in Las Vegas? Are you looking for an old big old delivery van? If your answer to both questions is yes, then head over to Craigslist and get in touch with the seller of unnamed delivery vans.
The size of the vans does not matter, because the van can deliver one pizza to an individual or dozens at a wedding. We cannot guarantee the condition of the said van, but the seller has detailed that it is “still functional.” Similarly, the $200 price tag is negotiable. It is not clear the year and makes of the vans on sale, but you will find that out when you contact the seller.
Who buys bar stools on Craigslist? Would you gauge the quality based on the images posted against the ad? If so, you cannot be sure that these used bar stools are going to support the weight of your beer-drinking 120-kg patrons. However, if you are the person who likes to take advantage of cheap items, go for this one.
Even if you owned a bar or hoped to open one in the near future, used bar stools on Craigslist is a strange item to be listed. You may not be the ideal buyer of these items, but the seller knows that there is someone out there who needs and deserves these.
3. Strange jobs
Have you ever been out there looking for a job and see a jobs ad whose headline fits you? You go ahead to scroll the description only to find that the job means the opposite of what it promises? For example, Craigslist jobs ads have been marked “Quality Assurance Officer” only for jobseekers to discover that it needs a fresh fish supplier.
What is the most likely explanation for ads whose descriptions do not justify what the headline says? Perhaps the person listing the ad wanted to attract people’s attention with a colorful heading. He knows that a heading that says “Fresh fish supplier” would only attract a handful of interested applicants. We might never know the motivation.
4. Exciting opportunities
One man’s meat is another man’s poison. You cannot judge the quality or authenticity of an advertised item based on what it promises. An advertisement titled “Exciting Opportunities” once appeared on Vegas Craigslist. The seller did not offer enough description of what these opportunities were.
Instead, he included his email and urged people to bid for the “offer” as a matter of urgency. One curious “applicant” expressed interest only to discover that the seller was looking for a husband. We must emphasize that Las Vegas is a host to many exciting opportunities. If you are looking for an exciting wife, please go ahead and check this ad out.
5. Trained and untrained camping instructors
Are there camping sites in Las Vegas? The answer is yes. However, are there camping sites looking to hire untrained camping instructors? The answer is also yes because Craigslist in Las Vegas once had a listing for that job opening. We might never find out the outcome of the recruitment for an untrained instructor.
Nevertheless, one thing is for sure. The company or individual who posted this job advertisement ended up more confused than before. You can be sure that he received more jokers than serious job seekers. Perhaps the opposite is true.
6. A huge used water reservoir
Are you looking for a really huge water reservoir that can hold a million liters? There is good news for you. A seller has just uploaded an image and a description of what you need. It might be a bit old, judging from the pictures. However, you are not looking for a new one, are you?
This is perhaps the strangest thing that you will ever see being sold online. However, Vegas is home to strange things and people. If you are one of them, you are in great company. With this water tank, you can start your own town and ensure that the water needs of the residents are well taken care of.
7. Free broken tiles
If you are the kind of artist who develops or designs things from scrap material, this is a treasure find for you. Craigslist Las Vegas has some really nice broken flooring tiles. Whether you are going to use them for their original purpose is not important. What is important is that you will be making a huge bargain, as they are marked “Free.”
8. Palm trees
The items in the list of the top 10 Wonders of Vegas Craigslist becomes crazier as we go down. Can you imagine that someone tried to sell palm trees online? You might be interested to buy if you need a really cool shade outside our house. You can also get in touch with the seller if you need to hold the soil outside your home intact with the roots of these trees.
Unless you are a firewood dealer, I do not see why you would need to buy these large and graceful trees. It is not clear whether the person listing them for sale would sell them as logs, firewood, and charcoal or simply as trees. However, there is only one way to find out- contact him.
You have discovered some really interesting items that people list on Craigslist. Are you more surprised than you were before reading these? Be sure to share with us some of the craziest things that you have ever seen being sold across online stores. We will be glad to add those to our list. What are you selling?
