CAST IRON FOUNDRY wanted: The new Craigslist Beijing.

Shanghai has had its own version of Craigslist since the beginning of June; now Beijing has joined the Craigslist club.

As with its Shanghai sibling, Craigslist Beijing is new, and not many users have heard about it, so for now the "Cute Chinese Boy Looking for Fun and Hot Action" may find himself shouting into a vacuum, and the "two muscular goodlooking bi males look[ing] for [a] woman" may have to content themselves with the Skinhua website a while longer.
Worse still, "CAST IRON FOUNDRY wanted" ("TO MAKE ORNAMENTAL CAST IRON...NEED cheapest ONE") may not have his plea answered with the expedience it clearly deserves. But perhaps you can help.
