Deceptive CL ads

So I'm ready for cabinets and have watched this place on CL that advertises cabinets starting at $18. I drive 50 miles to downtown Atl. to check them out. The $18 cabinets are small used POS. I see another ad stating vanities starting at $59. I get there and they quote me $175ea. for 2 of the 60" vanities, dang that's retail pricing, just wasted 100 mile trip in 95*.
I took $150 cash, hoping to bring a couple 3 cabinets home, didn't have enough money for even one.
The middle cabinet in the first pic is what I wanted.

I second this, we have a couple Habitat ReStores within a 45 min drive and I know from past visits that they usually have a pretty solid selection of cabinets, as well as a lot of other stuff as well.
