Craigs List Observations

I love scouring Craig's List for deals. Most of the time, everything is really over priced, but it is still fun to window shop. It's also fun to laugh at some of the grammar and spelling errors people make. I wonder if they edit their ads before they post them? Probably not. Here are a few of my observations:

bedroom suit- Is this like a bedroom suite? Is it some sort of special clothing for the bedroom? If that is the case, isn't it lingerie?

chester drawers- Is this a chest of drawers? Did you name your dresser Chester?

New _______ (only used once)- Pssst....if you use it even just one time, it is no longer new. It is now used.

hot tud- ?? a 6 person one at that.

IS IN GOOD CONDITION STRUCTLY- What the hell does "structly" mean???

retro= vinyl

antique= wooden and very broken down


shabby chic= usually just shabby

mid century=They mean last century, 1950s, not 1800's which is my thinking.

priced to sell- Nope, not for that price. If you really wanted it gone, maybe you wouldn't take a whopping $100 of the price you paid TEN years ago.

What are some funny CL posts you have come across?

So funny and so true. I hate when people say they are "going to sale this" when they should "sell it". Or say that it "is for sell". Ugh...

Have you read the best of Craigslist?
