Best of Craigslist on Cyber Monday: Carousel Horse, Ice Skates and Baby Chicks

Shop online, and shop local? You can do both on Craigslist, where Monmouth County neighbors are hoping to entice you to come by. With cash.

Because one man’s trash is another man’s Precious Moments Nativity Set, Patch has scoured Craigslist in northern Monmouth County to find some of the most interesting and unusual items posted for sale on this Cyber Monday.

Assembled and tuned by a local bike shop. Aluminum frame.

Kinda like Skee-Ball on the Boardwalk (sniff.) Folds up.
