way to get the point across is to "Edit" the original post

Edit the topic line to read " ----SOLD----"

then do the same as the very first line of the actual ad

That way new readers don't have to read the entire thread only to find out in the last post, it was sold.

Your case is different of course, it's almost humourus to see someone drag up a 4 year old for sale post and ask if it's still available...

You could even go as far as editing the original post to have no pictures or sales info, a simple sentence,

----item sold-----

as the only words in the original post

But again, having the ---SOLD--- included in the very first post would stop most searches and inquiries
