Fugly Friday - The Ugliest Things on Craigslist from Hartford, CT.

No kidding folks, for $35 you too can own a dirty cut up old tire. Or, you could wait until you run over a nail or piss off an ex and then just cut up a dirty old tire of your own.

This weeks' Fugly Friday post is dedicated to Lorie over at The Shewbridges of Central Florida. Last week, she specifically requested that I do the Waterbury, CT. area, but unfortunately they do not have a Craigslist site. So, I had to go with Hartford, which after consulting a map of the state looked to be the closest area around Waterbury with a Craigslist page. So anyway, enough with the rambling and on with the fugliness!



They are selling the hull on the left for $2500 without the engine or transmission or $5000 with them. My favorite part in the add is when they show a picture of the new car on the right though, and hope to subliminally talk you into buying the old scrapped out one.


For $400, you can wear the animal kingdom on your head. Little bit of squirrel here, little bit of fox there. One big fuzzy overpriced mess! Seriously, I don't know what the hat is made of, but it is ugly and way too expensive.


When someone feels the need to point out that some thing is "still working" like it is an added bonus, that is a sign that you likely don't want to buy it. I would think that an electronic device working would be implied unless otherwise stated and not that it was considered a strong selling point.


What is Fugly Friday without an ugly couch?


Here is another one of those "vintage" items. Funny how they are so often featured on Fugly Friday posts. These things may be worth a lot, but it is only my job to say they are ugly. You can own this rusty bike for $100 if you are so inclined.

People will sell anything.

I admittedly would go after that TV, only because I saw someone gut one of those and make a beautiful shelf out of it... I almost picked one up off the side of the road the other day, haha.

The tire? Who wouldn't want that!? haha

Lisa Noel said...

AW, ther's only ONE Tire?? I really wanted a set!! lol

April Decheine said...

I love your Craigslist posts, to funny, I was on there this morning looking for a riding lawn mower and the crap on there is hilarious!

Megan said...

That couch really has a price tag to it? It looks so dirty!

blueviolet said...

As if you'd be able to recreate that dream machine from that piece of crap car shell!

Texas Type A Mom said...

These should all be on the free list. Or better yet in the garbage where they belong!

Simply Being Mommy said...

Oh my gosh, I'd be embarrassed just to list those things ;)

Kathleen said...

Yep, sorry Lisa, there was only one. Your dream of a matching set will have to wait until another one of theirs pops.

See Whitney that is a good idea and if it was free on the side of the road that is one thing, but this one costs moolah.

Yep Megan, $50 and they'll throw the dirt in for free.

Penelope said...

Why would anyone want that tire?

Andrea @ The Creative Junkie said...

OMG, the couch is horrendous. I'd love to see what the rest of the house that it came from looks like.

Kathleen said...

It was advertised as a planter Penelope.

Rebel Chick said...

I don't even know what to say about these. LOL

That Bald Chick said...

Oy vey!

Jessica said...

LOL...people will try to sell anything won't they?!

Louise Bishop said...

This is so weird

A Happy Hippy Mom said...

"The animal kingdom on your head" made me laugh! Looks like something my mother would wear. Ummm...no offense to mom...

{Not Quite} Susie Homemaker said...

That hat is going to give me nightmares.

Please do Vegas!

Tricia Nightowlmama said...

lol that is crazy but I think I've seen those tire things used as planters

Shop with Me Mama said...

Oh my goodness the crap people try to sell! I guess it is the economy forcing people to do this!

Kathleen said...

Will do! Vegas is next week. :)

Marianna said...

Yay for Connecticut!!!!!!! I may have to run out and grab that hat. Holy crap that just might be one of the scariest things I have ever seen.

Sheila Rae said...

LMAO!! I am not sure what to say, except one mans trash is another mans treasure ;)

Courtney said...

How much for that couch?! Gag..

Marcie W. said...

I love these posts of yours!! Is it bad if I had extra money and knew how I would totally purchase the vintage TV so that I could redo it and use it as art?

Hil'Lesha said...

Me oh my! I so want that cut up tire.....NOT!

Anne - Mommy Has to Work said...

Seriously?? LOL, these are too funny!

Kathy said...

I can't believe people would buy that crap.

1stopmom said...

That car one cracks me up! I bet they are wondering why no one is contacting them, lol

Laurie said...

It's amazing what people will try to sell, and what people actually buy!

Barbara said...

That's so funny and I can't believe it.

Amanda said...

I love that the console TV had a smaller TV on top. If the larger one is still working, why do they need the smaller one?

Heather said...

ok, that hat is a piece of insanity right there. $400? NUTS!

Maggie said...

I just love the phrase "Fugly Friday" - it makes me laugh (which I appreciate - thanks!!)

Dee said...

My cousin use to have a tire like that. They somehow turned it inside out and made it into a planter in their yard.

Sam said...

LOL! I need the couch. It would look great in my living room.
