Strange classified ads

August 23rd, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 6 Comments

You’ve most likely read stories of people auctioning off strange items on eBay. Well eBay isn’t the only place where strange things are sold online.

Recently a fawn named Bella was rescued in Nova Scotia after someone tried to sell her illegally for $300 in a Kijiji online classified ad.

You can read the full story at “Deer for sale on Kijiji rescued.”

I once saw an artificial leg being sold via Kijiji classifieds. I emailed the person selling the leg and told them they should donate the artificial limb to War Amps.

A woman emailed me back, telling me that she buys items and then resells them.

(So she purchased someones artificial leg and was now reselling the leg on Kijiji.)

A few months back I was browsing Kijiji and there was a guy who was trying to get his bikini lawn care service off the ground. (I thought he was crazy, but apparently there is a lawn care company in the US offering Bikini lawn care.)

 	 We-Vibe Personal Massager

In the greater Toronto area, someone is selling a “We Vibe Personnel Massager” via Kijiji. ( I hope it wasn’t previously used.)

Kiji Coffin

Someone in Halifax is looking to purchase a coffin via Kijiji. ( I thought it was a joke, but according to the ad it’s not.)

What’s the strangest thing you’ve seen for sale on a classified website?

Check out Kijidiots for some crazy and strange Kijiji, Craiglist, and Ebay classified ads.

    A coffin new or used, eh? Used? Geez. Maybe like a display model with a nick or two out of it?

    Thanks for the laugh! 🙂

    What constantly amazes me is the auctions for bits of celebrity trivia (Lennon’s glasses, Monroe’s stockings etc) which sell for sky-high sums. And what sort of person lovingly strokes Monroe’s stockings every day? Nowt so queer as folk.

    I have never even heard of Kijiji . I guess I should check it out.

    That massager looks like a pair of headphones. But i’m gathering its purpose isn’t to massage the ears 🙂

    No, the purpose of this device that resembles headphones is not to massage ones ears.

    Can’t believe it took me this long to find this post!
    As a connoisseur of strange Kijiji ads, I think you’d enjoy the funniest and worst Kijiji ads around at Swing by and let me know if anything there tickles your funny bone. Thanks for a laugh, Rose!
