What are people thinking when they are selling stuff

So I'm scrolling through Craigslist for my area.

I'm not sure what world some of these people live in but they are asking way too much for junk.

I'm shocked $200.00 for one butt ugly table and the chairs have rips in the seat.  That's crazy.

Then I love the ones  that post pictures and they couldn't even take the time to uncover the table, it's covered with junk and asking $150.00 for it.

Also, I love how they try use the word unique for some 80's style office breakroom design, no that's not unique that DATED.

Maybe they are hoping that someone will see the potential. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

They want fast money? I have no I idea. I don't show my pics that have my junk in the back ground, or try not to.

 I HATE seeing Carseats for sale !!!!!!!!!!! ANY sane person would NEVER buy one from a stranger no matter what. You don't if it's been in an accident or anything plus it's just not safe !

I've seen some where they post a pic from the net, not the actual product they are selling. So who knows what it actually looks like.
I sell stuff on craigslist all the time. Just recently sold my washer and dryer for $245 for the set, in just 4 days.

I listed my house on there too, under real estate by broker cause it's listed on remax.com and realtor.com. But I am helping a little. Lol.
