But they're stylish!

No truth in advertising here.  "Hard to find"?  Obviously the seller hasn't been to our local shopping mall.  These things are everywhere!

DENIM SKIRTS - Hard to find long denim skirts! Created from stylish pants.  Size 8, 10 and 31 waist.  Asking $120.00.   555-555-5555

Goes with every decor

In our small midwestern town, the local newspaper offers free want ads.  This eliminates any "barrier to entry" to advertising in the paper and makes for fascinating reading.  One of this week's favorites:

DOUGHBOY THROW - New 64" x 64" pillsbury doughboy knit throw.  $55.00.  555-555-5555 after 5:00.

Open for Business

Welcome to Shit My Town Sells. We live in a small midwestern town where the local newspaper offers free want ads. We are constantly amazed and amused by the shit our neighbors advertise for sale. Here's our first example. We're guessing the owner is just too damn lazy to carry it to the trash can:

STEREO White Westinghouse stereo, no speakers, 5 CD changer, dual cassette player, missing one tape door & volume knob. $10.00. [Phone] 555-5555.

No shit. It was really in the paper this morning.
