Many of us spend way too much time on Facebook. As a guy who has worked in radio all my life, and all over the US, It’s a great way to keep in touch with old friends around the country. And if you have not checked out your local Facebook Marketplace, you are missing an opportunity to find some cool items at bargain prices. We’ve sold several items on Facebook, and bought items.

If you can think of it, you will probably find it there. It’s also a great place to give away things you don’t need anymore. I’ve unloaded old furniture to hungry college students that way. Whatever you have to sell, just take a picture of it, add a description and price, and post it. Facebook can also handle payment for you, or you can just work it out with the buyer. It's a free listing, and it has a quite large built in audience. You can just have the buyer pick it up, saves you the hassle of dealing with getting rid of it yourself.

Not only does it assist you in selling or giving away things you don’t want anymore, just browsing through the items is entertainment in itself. Believe me when I say, there are a lot of random items in Facebook Marketplace that will make you ask, why? We’ve picked out 15 different random items for sale on the Lansing Area Facebook Marketplace. I think you will agree, they are pretty random. Browse and enjoy!
