Strange Things That People Have Actually Tried To Sell On The Internet

by Angie

One of my favorite activities is browsing the Facebook Buy-Sell-Trade groups and Craigslist posts near me to check out the random stuff that the good people of the internet are trying to sell. 

Most of the time items are normal, everyday things that people try to pawn off on others. But there are days that things get a little weird, and that's where I come into play. 

I'm here to share with you the magic of the strange things for sale in and around the most random places are going beyond that of the typical 1970's Brewers memorabilia, cheese fedoras, and beer bottle lamps. 


Homemade Uber?

You know without all of those unneeded things like background checks.....

This Throne-Style Couch

This one actually would have me feeling kinda fancy! Though the burnt orange/brown color isn't doing much for this piece of furniture.

These "Worn Very Little" Birkenstocks

I honestly have no idea what "worn very little" means to this person, because well...take a look at those footprints. Gross!  

The original comments on this post were almost the best part about this and the fact that the original poster defended her description till the end. 

This Cow Household Lot

Are you looking for a set of complimentary cow decor for your house? 
Have you been looking for a mug with udders?
Look no further!

This CREEPY Marionette Puppet

This is just EXTRA creepy. Why??! I'm having nightmares just writing this article...

This Jet Engine Lamp

This is definitely a unique gift for the special man in your life. 

This Homemade Tattoo Set-up

Just say no. Your first red flag is the display set-up being shown on a dining room table chair. Yikes!

This Giant Wooden Clock Machine

Say what?! This clock works by the way of kinetic energy and wooden balls? And is the size of your living room? 

This Crochet Dress

When I picture a crochet dress, I see a little old lady with a homemade dress. This was not that. 

This Nightmare-Inducing Chicken Pitcher

"High-end"  is not the term I would've used...

This Cleaning Bundle

These always strike me as suspicious. Is this the work of an extreme couponer? Why is it so cheap? Do these actually sell? 

This Karaoke Deer

Do you know what your life is missing? A karaoke singing, fake, mounted deer of course! Connect with those country roots, and grab this "rare find" while you can!

These CD Jewel Case Inserts

I find it odd that anyone thinks that something that's 14 years too late will sell. I find it even odder that they are trying to sell them for what the original price was 14 years ago. 

This 100 Year Old Keg Tap

This is 100% uniquely Milwaukee. Only here can you purchase, and would others be interested in purchasing, a 100-year-old keg tapper. 

This Pile of Money

While the money isn't what's for sale, don't you find it a tad concerning that this listing is linked to your Facebook profile and you might become a target?
Also....iCloud* iPhone* iPad*

This $50 Burberry Purse

A lot of the Facebook sales groups in Milwaukee don't even allow purse sales. This clear fake is why. 

This Death Trap Tanning Bed

Do you remember in Final Destination 3 when the girls got in the tanning bed and it ended up locked and they burnt to death as the temperature rose? Yeah, this is what I imagine would happen in this ancient tanning bed.
