If you’ve ever gone browsing the “all for sale” section of Abilene Craigslist, you may get totally lost in the variety of what all is posted. A few months ago, I went to the site and did a little window shopping, then shared some of the more interesting finds. Then I did it again. Maybe I’m addicted, or maybe I just enjoy the conversation that is sparked by some of the items I’ve mentioned. No matter the reason, I’ve decided to give in to my temptations yet again, visit Abilene Craigslist, and share some of the best stuff currently for sale. All of these items are for sale, so don’t be afraid to make an offer!

  • Nice Dingo Gun Fighter Slot Machine – $500

    posted 10/2/12

    You have to admit, there’s something to be said for this conversation piece. And, according to the post description, it’s a children's toy. Hey, they’re never too young to prepare for a career as a professional gambler, right? Here's what the owner posted: "SLOT USES TOKENS TO PLAY SO GREAT AROUND THE KIDS. (THEY WON’T TAKE YOU MONEY). THIS ONE IS THE DINGO THEME AND HAS A MONITOR BUILT INTO THE BELLY TO USE WITH THE GAME BOY TYPE CONTROLS TO IT’S LEFT AND SOME FUN LITTLE GUN FIGHTS AND BAR SCENES ETC. TRADE FOR WHAT EVER AS I JUST DON’T USE IT NOW THAT MY DAUGHTER IS GONE AND IT GOT MOVED TO THE GARAGE."

    This is just cool. Emmitt Smith autographed a Dallas Cowboys helmet, and it could be yours! Not only is this memorabilia of one of the greatest football players in NFL history, but this helmet can help you explain to your grandkids that Emmitt Smith played football before he became a dancer: "i have a auto graphed Emmitt Smith helmet with the verification paper"

  • Sax – $235

    posted 10/1/12

    Is the saxaphone still cool? Apparently, not cool enough for one owner, who is looking to unload theirs on Craigslist. If you’re interested, maybe you can negotiate a deal for the sax and the totally amazing chair it’s sitting on in the photo: "Excellent condition. Comes with a hard case also in excellent condition. Price negotiable, make an offer"

    Uh…ok. Think about it. For only 5 bucks, you can rid your neighborhood of pesky grasshoppers. Or, there’s another option, according to the post: "One young game rooster ready for service or the frying pan!!!"
