Best of the bartering

November 01, 2011|By Simon Habtemariam

Select Craig's List barter listings

Have: 5-person hot tub (4 seats and 1 lounge chair). It has a light that changes colors or you can choose a color to set it on (LED). Comes with the cover, bottom and sides are plastic so you never need to worry about rotted wood.

Want: A crabbing/fishing boat, Jet Ski, utility trailer, pop-up camper, etc.

Comments: Because somebody that's willing to trade you a hot tub on craigslist has probably NEVER done anything questionable in it.

Have: Cool ride, 92 MB 500SL, 2dr, pwr softtop & has hardtop too. Sweet running 5.0 liter V8, 4matic auto, Lots of pwr options, everything works as it should, pwr top, pwr rollbar, climate control etc... 4 Like new bridgestone tires & car only has 118k miles. Has minor cosmetics, but nice car for being 20yrs old

Comments: This car comes to you from our '90s cop-movie collection. You've probably seen it doing doughnuts in some form via "Die Hard" or "Lethal Weapon 3" or "4." Shockingly the owner is trading for a street car that's "younger."

Have: Deer Park (Oasis) Water Cooler, Works Great keeps water super cold. 100.00; Samuri Sword, Small one. Was sent to me from a friend who is stationed in japan, Not sharp but made very well and sturdy. 250.00; Dale Senior Card 1993 Winston Cup in a plaque very nice. Wood. must see; Mark Mgwire stuff

Comments: OK, I'm interested to meet the collector that opts out of tap water and is baller enough to only drink Deer Park Oasis — forget Perrier. Although, I'm not sure if I want to do business with a collector of all things Mark McGuire and Dale Earnhardt Senior who is yielding ancient Japanese weaponry.
