Cookies Not Included
Who doesn't like cookies, right? But what if you really, really like them? Say, to the tune of having 90 cookie jars sitting around, all primed and ready for the raiding shenanigans of various adorable rapscallions? This Woodridge seller's collection ranges from about $2 to $30 per jar, including "rare jars." Cookies presumably not included.
Dear Thief: I Will Punch You
Using some seriously not-safe-for-work language (be warned), this Naperville poster took to Craigslist to vent about the theft of a Marshall amp. "I will find out who you are," the angry poster promises. "You have no idea how many connections I have... I will beat the cost of my property out of your pathetic [expletives]." A savvy thief may look to resell that amp somewhere besides Craigslist.
Old-School Rocking Horse
Ever bought your kid a pricey, super-techy new toy and then a.) watched it break after five minutes or b.) watched the kid have more fun with the box it came in? Sometimes simpler and old-school is just better. This Naperville seller's adorable classic wooden rocking-horse was "ridden and very much loved by our children," has been in storage for a while, and could perhaps teach modern kids a thing or two about the simpler pleasures.
Become a (Fake) Millionaire!
Just $5 for between $500,000 and $1,000,000? No, it's not the lottery... it's just that those hundreds of thousands are stamped with a big fat "NOT LEGAL TENDER." Five bucks gets you a thousand very fake bills of $50s and $100s in Woodridge, so you can make it rain... or teach kids about financial responsibility... or let your kids make it rain?
Play Xbox With Me?
Do you game? Do you game Xbox? Do you live around Naperville? A 24-year-old fellow from the area is looking for a group to play Halo, FIFA, Gears of War, Skate 3, etc. with him. Real-life people—and presumably not your typical online player shrieking various epithets—preferred.
Marlin Wall Mount
No, it doesn't sing. But in an emergency (zombies?), you could probably use it as an impromptu sword. $199 in Lisle for this big fishy fella.
