If you haven’t been searching for a new apartment/job/couch, or haven’t been scouring our site lately, you might have missed some of the goods Craiglist’s Cavern of Wacky Wonders has been doling out lately. And today, the Craigslist Gods are gifting one of you lucky lovers out there with a veritable prophylactic fountain: 10,000 condoms. For free. (more…)
Anyone who’s ever cruised Craigslist for housing has come across strange and nightmarish situations. At least those are entertaining though. Much worse are the housing ads that present themselves as totally normal despite being horrible places to live. One person, sick of trawling Craigslist in silence, has spoken up with The Worst Room, a Tumblr devoted to all of the awful “affordable” housing options in New York found on Craigslist. (more…)
Online dating sites are a dime a dozen these days, and in this day and age there’s no shame in OKCupid-ing your way to
romance a free dinner — even Martha Stewart’s doing it! But with so many eligible lovely ladies and lusty bachelors out there, the online dating profile’s become part art, part science, and unless you’re just hot-or-not-ing the selection on Tinder, it’s hard to sift through all sludge to find Mr. or Ms. Right. For one “successful entrepreneur,” the online dating world has become so dense and difficult, he needs someone to do it for him – and for $100 a week, that person can be you! (more…)
You’ve got a dog, and having a dog costs money. And time. And while having a dog provides you with companionship and something laugh at while high that won’t get it’s feelings hurt, doesn’t it ever feel like your dog could be doing more for you? Well now, thanks to a mysterious Craigslist offer asking to rent your dog, it can do more for you. (more…)
[UPDATE: Sotheby's told Gakwer this was all a hoax and that they're too fancy for Craigslist:
"We can confirm that it is not a Sotheby’s job posting. We don’t hire for a position of that title, and we don’t use Craigslist as a recruiting tool.
We have also checked with our colleagues at Sotheby’s International Realty and they confirmed it wasn’t them either. Our guess is that this is some kind of a hoax."
Of course, it sounds like the dumbest hoax ever and we really want this to be true, so we'll just pretend that it is]
If you need a new job and have some basic office skills, you might want to shoot your resume over to fancy art people Sotheby’s. Judging by their Craigslist ad looking for a new administrative assistant, they need you pretty badly, especially if you know how to use the copy and paste function on your computer, which is very very difficult, as we all know.

Consider this your PSA for the day: Craigslist is a wonderful resource for finding many things, like jobs, apartments and that beautiful bearded man who smiled at you on the G train. But sometimes, we see things up for grabs on Craigslist that make us cringe, like ads for free and/or cheap mattresses and beds. (more…)
We’ve been talking abut New York’s apartment scene a lot lately, because it’s always fun to do that, but also because it contains so many absurdities. Never is this more apparent than when you’re desperately checking Craigslist to find a sublet that is affordable and not one of those “seeking a quiet foreign non-smoking student” ads. A tipster dropped off something off in our email that she came across while looking for a place. It’s a dream in price and location (Carroll Gardens! $500/month!) but is not-so-much a dream in every other way. (more…)
Ah, the Craigslist missed connection. Excellent time waster, last bastion of the socially awkward and the delusional. For as long as we’ve been reading these dispatches of one-sided romance, we’ve never been able to see exactly where they happened. But now, with Craigslist’s map view feature, you can see exactly where these are clustering. Sounds like we’ve got another awesome way to waste time at work. (more…)
Are you getting married? I’m not, but if I was, I know I’d sure be interested in saving money on my impending nuptials, those things are pricey. Well, this generous soul in Park Slope is offering up her wedding vail [sic] from 1989. It’s in perfect condition, but needs a cleaning. As you can see from the pictures, it’s got a wreath-slash-Medieval-princess look going on, so this is especially perfect for any themed weddings you may be planning on having. (more…)
It’s free medical care you can find on the internet day at Brokelyn! We stumbled across something that would probably be more prevalent had Mitt Romney won and done away with Obamacare: dental students offering you teeth cleanings on Craigslist. Is it a symptom of the terrible insurance-less dystopia we live in or just a guy in dental school whose friends won’t let him practice his craft on them? We’re too afraid to go and find out, but then, we’ve seen The Dentist 2. But hey, if you haven’t had your teeth cleaned in a year and don’t have insurnace, the person does make the compelling argument that this is the time to turn your life of poor dental hygiene around. Unless…oh man, do you guys think this is where those wisdom teeth push pins really come from?
