Free KISS Band Memorabilia Ad On Craigslist


Hey KISS Army! Check out this Craigslist ad from Pasadena:

You wanted the best and you got the best: my KISS collection. I'm saying goodbye to my KISS memorabilia. I always planned on becoming a serious collector, but I never got around to it, and it's time to say Let Me Go, Rock 'N' Roll to my modest collection. And it's important to me that it find a good home. Do you, or someone you know, love KISS? I mean, do you really really really, REALLY love KISS? Then this collection can be yours --- for FREE.

I was talking to somebody backstage before, and they were tellin' me it would be great for yourself, or as a last-last-last minute KISSmas present to the KISS fan in your life.

There are no bills, there are no fees. There is one requirement, though. You must tell me in 250 words or less why you - or your friend, or husband, or brother, or wife, or Shandi, or whoever - deserves this collection more than anyone else. What does KISS mean to you? Why will yours be the best home for my collection? What part have these Creatures of the Night played in your life? The essay that moves, touches, or makes me think, or cry, or laugh the most, will win.

HOWEVER, if none of the essays accomplishes the above, there will be no winner. Put some imagination and heart into it, people!

So, get up and get your grandma out of here! You've got work to do.

Now, you're probably wondering what you'll get for your 250 words? The collection includes the following...

All 4 unopened McFarlane Toys KISS Action Figures from 1997, each with mini gold replica solo album.
2 Legends of The Fridge refrigerator magnets of the band - opened, but still in packaging.

1 Ralph Marlin unused KISS tie from 1997.

1 Chu-Bops mini-album cover from 1980 for KISS Unmasked. Chu-Bops were a piece of album-shaped bubble gum inside a mini album cover. This has been opened, and there is no gum. It's a really cool collector's item.

Can you believe this offer? Am I great or what? Almost as great as Gene Simmons thinks he is.

Why are you still reading this? Get to work! And good luck, KISSfan!
