Brighton’s Facebook Market place: plants called Claire, family homes and liquified plums

Bargains galore


Students love nothing more than a mindless scroll through facebook. So when Mr Zuckerberg blessed us with the invention of Facebook Marketplace, nothing could stop us from finding all of the smashing deals in our local area.

But Facebook is a weird and wonderful place. And the only thing weirder? Brightonians of course.

We have expertly collated the strangest, spookiest, and most scandalous listings in and around Brighton, so you don't have to.

Claire, the houseplant obviously

Surely this one cannot be real? . If so, incredibly shoddy marketing.

An incomplete cafetiere

A futuristic, lightweight design that will spill coffee all over your kitchen.

Plums

We have so many issues with this. Firstly, half a million pounds for some plums seems quite steep. Secondly, that's not even a photo of plums?

Upon further investigation, this savvy individual was in fact seeking to find plums, more specifically the Victoria variety. It's all very niche. We hope they found some.

Upset your loved ones this festive period with the world's most disappointing advent calendar

Bollard
