Cool & funky things I found FREE on Craigslist
It's amazing what people will throw away these days. Or give away. And that's why I'm a huge fan of Craigslist .
Not only is a great place to sell all that stuff you thought no-one would buy, it's also an ideal way to get your hands on some great things for almost nothing. Or even better, actually nothing!
Here are a few of the items I found for FREE on my local Craigslist. The free button is located in the For Sale section of the Craigslist site. If you don't find at least a few things on there that you could find useful, I'll eat my hat (but not to worry, I'll find a free one on Craigslist anyway).
A COOL VINTAGE TURNTABLE & CABINET
Free of charge. I just have to go pick it up. They're trying to replicate these things for hundreds of dollars these days. And someone is just giving this one away. Ha!
A MICROWAVE STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BRADY BUNCH ERA
You just can't beat vintage stuff. I love it. And this one still works. I love the old wood and black plastic. Classic!
A TV & CABINET - SOLID WOOD, AMAZING CRAFTSMANSHIP, GROOVY BABY
As you can see, I have a penchant for the older, cooler items. That's because they have character baby, something sadly lacking in this modern day world of plastic and vinyl.
A SOFA WITH MORE 'TUDE AND STYLE THAN I CAN HANDLE
My wife would no doubt kill me if I actually picked this up. But if I had the kind of pad that could handle this kind of classic style, I'd snap it up. I saw several modern furniture designers rip this off a few years ago in London.
A KEG-O-RATOR FRIDGE
Seriously, what red-blooded male wouldn't want a Keg Fridge in his garage or basement? And why pay for it when some generous chap is giving a perfect one away for free! Score!
A REDWOOD DECK - 12'8" X 23'8"
I mean, even as scrapwood it's worth something. But this is a complete Redwood Deck. All it needs is to be rebuilt on your own property (cut to size of course) and then stained to brighten it up. What is that? $1000 saved on timber?
SOLAR PANELS - NOT JUST FREE, THEY CAN CUT YOUR POWER BILL
I don't know the going rate of large solar panels to power your home, but I imagine they're not cheap. Someone moved into a house and these were sat at the bottom of the garden.
THE BEST FOR LAST - FREE BEER!
Yup, someone had a friend who worked in a liquor store and he left this behind as a gift when he moved out. They don't drink beer. I do. Looks like 50-60 cans for my beer fridge. Woot!
So, that's what I found. Let me know if you find a mega-free deal worth shouting about. After all, you can't beat free. Unless of course someone pays you take it away! Happy hunting.
