While there is no shortage of interesting things on the internet, locally-sourced goods and services keeps a strong appeal. That’s where – for these out of the ordinary items – the two worlds collide. Let’s take a closer look at these interesting finds on Facebook Marketplace.
A Real Prison Bus
For those who know, you can find a lot of off-the-wall things on Facebook Marketplace. But a prison bus for sale is definitely up there. Here is what the listing says:
- Listing: 1975 Chevrolet Bus
- Location: Pitts, GA
- Price: $700
Seller’s Description: “Old bus been sitting need to get rid of it needs to be towed I can negotiate with price only if your serious about buying”
The listing also says the bus has an automatic transmission, the exterior color is white, and the interior color is blue.
A whole chicken farm, minus the chickens
This is one of the largest things for sale I have ever found on Facebook, and the offer is no joke. Here’s what the listing says:
- Listing: 9 Beds 3 Baths – House
- Location: Rochelle, GA
- Price: $3,000,000
Seller’s Description: “Awesome business opportunity to own two cash generating egg farms.
Located in Rochelle Georgia. The property included 86.82 acres, three mobile homes, two farms, a large wired storage building, a small stable, six chicken houses, 4 wells, and additional land to expand and grow. Each farm include three chicken houses for a total of six houses measuring 50 x 440 per house each includes two generators, two wells.
Presently contracted with Tyson; contract is assumable. This can be a great opportunity because it does not take many people to run the farm. The owner has created a very good relationship with the company and is looking for someone to take over. Financial statements are available via email.”

- Listing: Antique Wayne 605 Gas Pump – Vintage Patina Weathered Look Mancave Decor
- Location: Moultrie, GA
- Price: $1,000
Seller’s Description: “Step back in time with this Antique Wayne 605 Gas Pump. A true relic from the past, this gas pump is a testament to the golden age of automotive history.
This pump is adorned with a rich patina that only time can create, giving it an authentic, weathered look that is sure to catch the eye of any vintage enthusiast. The rust and wear add to its charm, telling a story of a bygone era.
