One of the best things about Facebook, especially during a pandemic, is that you have the ability to basically go garage sale-ing without actually having to go in person. I find most of the stuff listed on the Facebook Marketplace to actually be handy or valuable for most people. If you ever need anything for your house or yard, there usually seems to be something of good quality for a good price listed on it. If you follow it daily you can actually find some sweet deals before they get sold.

But lately I've been keeping my eye on some of the off the wall, fun, goofy and strange things for sale that people often list. This weekly scavenger hunt for the oddest things in our area has paid off as I deliver 3 unique, odd and interesting things that are listed right now on the Kalamazoo Markeplace. That is, if it hasn't been sold by the time you read this:

Item 1: Japanese Token Game- $275

Facebook Marketplace

Now that may seem like a huge investment, but that's exactly what it is. If you have the money I highly suggest getting one of these. My dad has one that's similar and it's super fun for kids and adults alike.

Item 2: Rare Vintage Wooden Kangaroo- $45

Facebook Marketplace

Okay you may ask yourself, "Why would I ever want a wooden kangaroo?" Well, do you know anyone else with a wooden kangaroo in Kalamazoo? Or someone that cn say "I've got a kangaroo in Kalamazoo?" I didn't think so, be the first.

Item 3: Rock'ola CD Juke Box- $50

Facebook Marketplace

This one is a bit of a stretch, considering it IS a project item. Finding someone who can fix these to restore to working order isn't too hard, but you will be spending some money to do so. Regardless, jukeboxes are sweet, so those with a desire to have one usually jump quick.
