Out of you guys who barter what's the craziest thing you have traded or traded for? I'm not into bartering unless I can make a fast sell but some guy offered me a black angus bull calf for a set of Dewalt power tools. It kinda blew my mind quite a bit tbh.

Thats a great story/barter. Unfortunately for me, not much bartering going on. Most of the offers I get are rediculously in the favor of the other person. Most of the people I have dealt with seem to be obviously trying to upsell with their barter offers, and not trade one item for another of EQUAL value.

Usually I am selling furniture in the $150 - $500 range and I get offers to trade my furniture for things like, used cell phones, 5 year old digital cameras, used playstations-xboxs, used wal-mart bicycles, etc.

On what planet is any of these above mentioned things worth even close to $150 -$500??

Now if someone offered my a baby black Angus bull, I would have to consider that one!

Think I would have to take the calf too.

We don't really barter either. The usual stuff we get offered is because you can't sell it.

Did trade some rabbits for a goat. Cost of rabbits about $30 if I sold them, average cost of a goat is $50 and up. The trade with a neighbor so not really a true barter... LOL  And have to wait on the goat.

Do you barter on craigslist?
