I confess to being fascinated by the items I see listed on craigslist.com/South Florida. This ubiquitous site features a “free” section. In it, people list a myriad of items that they’re giving away: furniture, books, clothing, boats, electronics – you name it.
Here’s a selection from my local craigslist for Friday and Saturday, August 20-21, 2010. The original spellings were retained, as was the use of upper case and photos. Some of the items are obviously valuable to someone – others you stare at incredulously (such as the camera case – is someone really going to drive somewhere to pick it up?). But then again, I believe the philosophy craigslist’s based on: one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
