My daughter likes the show.  Of course she has been bartering since she was 4.  The post we had a few months back of the 14yr old who bought a house in Florida really got her interest.  Anyways, I'll come home on fridays like today and she will have a list of yard sales for saturday, possible trades on CL, etc.

Most of the trades on CL are sells - not really trades.  That and they "value" the item at new retail.  So far I've only seen a few straight trades that looked good.  Example was a dresser or chest of drawers for a digital or video camera.  If I had of had some at the time I would of tried to work a trade.  Furniture isn't my thing where camera equipment is.

As for the show - I've watched a few mins of them but not really a fan.  Some of the stuff they trade up is just in the "WOW - how dumb can you be" type factor.  I do like watching how they "talk" to people.  Even if scripted some of the thought processes that they have relates to us.

I wonder that too.  But after watching last night, I think I'm going to trade a thumb tack up to a nice red Corvette! 

I must be doing something wrong........everybody wants to trade me a $200 item for my $500 item.....I better watch a few more shows!

Nooo Sh$$$$$tt!!!

Well, reading this topic has been educational. You all have saved me precious time. Instead of checking to see what Barter Kings is I'll have plenty of time to watch more weather channel.
