Free Stuff Section on Craigslist

The Craigslist Free Section - Junk or Treasure?

The Craigslist Free Stuff Category is one of the most popular and notoriously flag conscious sections on Craigslist. In most cities, the community polices this section very close to ensure people do not try to put things for sale or business advertisements in this section. Ironically the "free" category is under items for sale / wanted but is designed to be a place for people to completely give stuff away. Barter is also not allowed in this area. While a majority of what you will find in this section could be classified as "junk" that is too big for people to easily throw away. There are at times valuable finds in the free section. Plus one man's junk is another man's treasure.
