20 Unbelievably Strange Ads That Have Appeared On Craigslist

Funny, Lists, Other, Shocking, Social, Weird

Craigslist first opened its doors in 1999 and has since grown into one of the most popular sites on the web. It is essentially the same as the classified advertisement section you would find in a newspaper but because of its widespread reach and large audience, it caters to a much larger range of hobbies, activities and tastes than more traditional classifieds.

This has led to a huge array of odd and strange postings on Craigslist. Some of them involve people trying to sell weird items, others are people trying to acquire services that people are offering while a select few see ads that are just requesting information or help. This is a collection of the strangest and most bizarre ads that have been posted on Craigslist throughout its life.
