Craigslist Entertainment

John and I often browse Craigslist - sometimes because we need something and sometimes because it's just fun.

Last night I came across a post for some wicker patio furniture. It all sounded nice and then we looked at the picture. Notice anything strange?

And then there was this set of microsuede furniture from the same seller.

So after much discussion as to whether the pictures were just taken at weird angles or if this furniture belonged to very small people, we decided to send a friendly email to the sellers. It said:


My husband and I are huge craigslist fans and we frequently browse through listings just for fun. We've been really intrigued by both your microsuede post and the patio set post. My husband is convinced all of these things are small and I say it's the angle of the picture. Is the white SUV in the background super huge or is all the furniture extra little? Will you settle our argument for us?

Thanks! =)

We just sent it about an hour ago so we don't have an answer. I'm not sure if they will respond at all, but I hope they do. Surely, this is just a funny picture, right? Because if you were going to sell small, mini furniture on Craigslist, wouldn't you mention the size in the ad? I'm just way too amused here......

What do YOU think???


  1. Oh, my La! That is a Ford Escape..which are super small SUV's. I really am dying to know who owns this furniture! :)

  2. I think the people who own it are "little people". LOL! That is tiny furniture.

    By the way, your comment section is weird and it usually takes 2 or 3 times of submitting a comment before it accepts it. I wonder if you have some strange setting going?
