Denver Craigslist is an online repository for just about everything -- including people who like to share haiku. And there's plenty of strangeness on display even when it comes to typical transactions like buying and selling. Case in point: The "Wanted" category, where folks post about stuff they're seeking. A recent visit turned up people looking for everything from a cardboard Kid Rock to vintage girdles, and everything in between. Check out our photo-illustrated top ten below, featuring links to original posts. Be sure to click if you can make anyone's dream come true. Number 10: Kid Rock Life-Size Cut-Out Wanted

I pay cash for VINTAGE, pre-1965 foundation garments and shapewear like girdles, shapers or All-in-Ones, pre-1940 corsets, and seamed or seamless stockings (NOT pantyhose).
These must be in good condition, NOT rotten, torn, stained, or worn out. Buying price is negotiated with you and is affected by what the item is and its condition, age, and label name.
See my pics for examples of the kind of garments I am looking for.
I can come to your home or workplace or can meet in-between. I am in zip code 80210, near I-25 & S. University Blvd.
