Sacramento, California is an area known for beautiful weather, beautiful people, and little-known facts. One item of interest is that Sacramento wasn’t always the capital of California. The state of California had six different capitals, and Sacramento took two turns at it before its permanent honor was bestowed in 1879, at the California Convention. The folks in Sacramento are so polite that they constructed a roller coaster called “The Screamer”; however, they forbade folks to actually yell out on the ride, so as to not bother the neighbors.
In this eclectic California city, there’s plenty of high priced shopping and all sort of varieties of services that the best money can buy. Still, if you are sniffing out a bargain in Sac-Town, the only place to go is Craigslist Sacramento. There the not-so-rich and famous can post ads to garner the collectible of their dreams, sell their unwanted accumulation of stuff, and offer whatever is worth doing for a song.
Here are some of the craziest ads that have appeared recently on Craigslist Sacramento. You better act quickly.
Picky Feline Stockpile

The brand name is “Weruva Splash Dance, which is a great food – my cat is just nuts.” the owner proclaims. Also included in this feline rejected flavor assortment is ” 2 other types she stopped eating, Impulse and Applawse.”
Play “The Office” at Home
If you want to feel like you are still at work in your off hours, or give your home office that compartmentalized feel, you can have your very own cubicle farm. This ad, Herman Miller With As Much Glass as You Need, https://sacramento.craigslist.org/fud/5688794783.html, headlines as if you will be getting your own employee named Herman included with the deal. Unfortunately, it’s just plain old cubicles.
Holy Bargain Shoes
If you’re looking for that special baby gift, how about a pair of 1950′ s CANADIAN SEALSKIN CHILD’S MOCASSINS – $10, https://sacramento.craigslist.org/clt/5672541869.html. These handcrafted shoes made from skinned seals have character (and a hole in the right sole). if you don’t believe how special they are, the seller has ” MANY FAMILY PHOTOS OF MYSELF WEARING THESE.” The posting also includes some trivia about the seller, “APPROXIMATELY 6″ LONG. HOLE IN RIGHT SOLE (ALWAYS WEAR HOLE IN LEFT SOLE AS AN ADULT…ODD).”
Latrine for Rent
What do to if money is tight and you have an extra vintage style lavatory? You advertise it as a room for rent on Craigslist. This “Best of Craigslist” Sacramento ad, Latrine Style room, http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/sfo/1036298838.html, says that this room was ” Built at the peak of the dot com era, we thought we would be able to use the bathroom for what it was – a place to bathe and defecate and primp and soothe. But with the economy being what it is, we must rent it out.” The only downside is that the person who rents the space has to “remove all your stuff every morning (after you bathe of course) so that we can maintain the appearance of wealth even though we don’t have much money these days.”
This ad for Live and Frozen Feeder Rat, https://sacramento.craigslist.org/for/5661150141.html, features a cartoon mouse wearing a rather stunned expression.

If you are into Hanna-Barbera cartoons, “Also available is a size comparison model sheet depicting Yogi Bear , Boo Boo, Snagglepuss and Huckleberry Hound.” This is quite an underground item, as “This is a rare model sheet never intended for sale to the public. This celluloid was issued to illustrators only and was not permitted to leave the Warner bros. lot.”
