my favorite ads on nextdoor this week:


-FREE- round table, terrible condition (see above)


-FREE – old milk crate (very dirty)

in good shape except for being really filthy


(at least i think they are priced fairly)

  1. One manโ€™s trash is another manโ€™s treasure is a proverbial expression, used to signify the difference of taste of each human being. It highlights that fact that a thing, which one would consider to be rubbish and useless, could be used and highly valued by someone else.

  2. Certainly interesting items to offer, not ones you usually see at any price! Actually, I’d check out the milk crate to see how much investment there would be in cleaning it. And I can see a D.I.Y.’r taking the table just for the base! Everything is worth something to somebody!

  3. Ones trash is another persons treasure. I have always been amazed at what can be done to refurbish and create with items people throw away. Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

  4. I’m a big fan of honest ads. I remember one of my buddies who had a car that looked like it should be taken out back and shot. He wrote $10,000 or best offer. The best offer came in at $300.๐Ÿคฃ

  5. My husband always teases me because this is how I often explain things. I’ve never claimed to be nor have any desire to be a salesperson. I will give you an honest pro/con review of everything.


  6. We used to live in a neighborhood where folks would put stuff out on the curb with a “FREE” sign on it. Oddly enough it would eventually disappear. Often taken by a happy customer! ๐Ÿ’ž But I’m not sure it would work in your example…. ๐Ÿ˜
