So you're in the market for a snowman made out of tires, huh? Or perhaps a couple of rats. Well, the good news is you can get those things for free! Occasionally I'll still scout Eastern Iowa's Craiglist pages. I say "still" because I feel like, for most people, Craigslist is a thing of the past. Despite that line of thinking, there's still some good and funny stuff on the site. As you'll see in the photos below, one person's trash is likely another's a treasure. Perhaps something you'll see is your treasure?
