Oh, the weird and the wonderful that is Craigslist. Today, we’ve reached a whole new level of quarantine boredom and have found ourselves perusing all the bizarre listings on the popular website. Let us tell ya, there’s some wild stuff out there.

Here are 6 weird Craigslist items available in Toronto.

BABY TOY THING?

Selling old baby toys on Craigslist isn’t that weird in and of itself. But what makes this listing bizarre is that the poster doesn’t seem to really know what it is they’re getting rid of. The description reads: “I have this toy thing that a baby lays under I guess?” Plus, the listing literally has “Thing?” in the title. It is free though. So there’s that.

MID-1800s PORCELAIN STOVE

Think that baking sourdough is the ultimate way to embrace the kitchen? Well, friend, it’s time to step your game way up. This thing is apparently functional, however, we’re not sure how much it would cost to properly install it. But, at a price of $37,500, we’re sure whoever buys it can also afford to get it running again.

CORN SOAP

Moving on to a cheaper pick, we’ve got corn soap. Sometimes regular old soap just doesn’t do the trick. So, of course, soap shaped like corn on the cob is the obvious solution. Apparently, this particular corn soap is vintage Eaton’s Memorabilia, so you’re really getting bang for your buck.

VINTAGE MINK TRAPPING BOOK

The quarantine hobby you didn’t know you needed: mink trapping. If you’d like a vintage book all about catching and ahem dealing with wild mink, Craigslist has got you covered. The thing was written in 1934 and is up for grabs for only $20.

RAILROAD SPIKES

We’re not really sure what use someone could have for rusty old railroad spikes. But hey – if that’s your thing, more power to ya. One Craigslist seller is unloading 12 for the price of $30.

DIRTY GAS PUMP NOZZLE

Along the same lines, you can also nab your very own dirty gas pump nozzle. Is there a market for old, rusty pieces of metal that we don’t know about? At this one’s vintage. But it also literally has the word “dirty” in the title, so be ready for authenticity.

A $50 BILL… ON SALE FOR $60

Listen, we respect the hustle of whoever posted this listing. But also, come on. In perhaps the purest form of market profit, you can get your hands on a $50 bill for… $60. Sure, it’s from 2012 and is something called a repeater note. So maybe that means something to currency collectors. But if you ask us, a $10 increase in value in less than 10 year just seems fishy.

A LIFE-SIZED RAPTOR STATUE

This one comes from Kijiji, but we couldn’t help to include it in our roundup. After all, it’s not every day you have the chance to buy a $7,500 six-foot-tall raptor that has recently been painted blue. Oh, and one more thing- this is only appropriate for indoor displays. Front entrance, here it comes!

GOOSEBUMPS BOOK SET IN SIGNED TIN BOX

You would think that a signed box from one of the best-selling authors of all time would be a little more expensive. Turns out, it can be yours for a mere $50. Try getting the same deal from a Faulkner box set or something- it can’t be done.

So there you have it! If any of these weird Craigslist items have sparked your interest, be sure to nab them while they’re hot. If you’ll excuse us, we’ll be heading back to the regular online stores for our shopping.
