Chance to buy an American town of your own
A whole town in the south of the American state of Georgia has been put up for sale.
The owner of Toomsboro has decided to sell up after his plans to turn it into a tourist destination came to nothing.
The town, which is home to 700 people, has a post office, convenience store, florist and hand-made cabinet seller.
The original would-be developer, David Bumgardner, bought the town in two batches, but he could not make his plans, drawn up in association with conservationist Bill Lucado, come to fruition.
Advertisements for the town drawn up by the agent handling the sale, in consultation with Lucado, say it would make an ideal base for a film or music production company.
The sale follows another deal in March, which saw the Wyoming town of Buford disposed of by its only resident to a Vietnamese businessman, who paid $900,000 (£556,000) for his own corner of the land of the free, according to the Huffington Post.
