UPDATE: Someone Called Me Out Over My Facebook Marketplace Blog
I recently wrote a blog about items on the Facebook marketplace in Amarillo that made me scratch my head or giggle. There was a dinosaur looking for his contact lens, a stop sign, a puppet, an old vending machine, and those candies.
Those candies. Those rainbow-colored Cheeto-looking candies.
The person who makes those candies contacted me on Facebook. Her name is Destani, and she told me I should try them. I said, "okay."
Now there is a big giant bag of the candies sitting on my desk and I have to put those candies where my foot usually finds itself.
Tomorrow we will be filming an honest taste test of the different candies that Destani dropped off.
I decided to browse through Amarillo's Facebook marketplace and see if I could find anything interesting. I clicked on "Miscellaneous" and tried to find an interesting good deal.
While there were a lot of leftover garage sale items, I did come across a few interesting items that caught my attention.
I immediately stopped scrolling. I never expected to see a puppet of this caliber on the Facebook marketplace for Amarillo. I am impressed that there is someone out there who knows how to make puppets. I wouldn't know where to begin, except for tearing up the foam on my sofa.
Vintage Vending Machines
I remember seeing machines that looked like this vending machine, and they dispensed cigarettes; which didn't seem cool to me until I was, unfortunately, a smoker. I can't remember the last time I saw a vending machine like this.
If you didn't get enough at Jurassic Quest over the weekend, you can find dino sculptures. This one is of a raptor looking for a lost contact.
There's a street missing a stop sign
I wasn't expecting a stop sign, being sold as-is, on a pole. While fun to imagine someone uprooting a stop sign and putting it up for sale, I doubt that was the case. However, it does look like it's been on the wrong end of a barrel; if you know what I mean.
