Today's "Not My Turf" Is Gonna Be A Little Different. Instead Of Choosing One City And Scouring Their Craigslist, I Looked Back At The Comment From A Post Asking For Suggestions I Pulled One Ad From Each Of Those. Status: Dozen!

IMGP0612 - dozen eggs
Whew, pickens are getting slim everywhere it looks like!  I guess it's the change of seasons, I'm not sure.  The STL doesn't seem to be suffering too much as I see and get messaged about great items every day still, but I not doing too much scavenging at the moment.  Still, when I look around at some other's not just falling in my lap.
...But I did manage to find at least one cool offering from each of these 12 cities.  Take a look!
