This is not Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka.

July 13, 2011

I have to start this post off with saying that I have a somewhat obsession with craigslist classifieds, I love looking at storefronts and retail places in and around different cities in the Usa and Canada. So with that said, I also love Willy Wonka. When I was searching the Vermont listings, I came across this listing for a place that is for sale in the Bronx? Yeah it really did not make much sense to me either and I am sure that it is fake, however it made me laugh non the less and I wanted to share it with you. Here is a link to the posting and below is the whole listing in case it is removed.
