Is there part of this I don't understand?
I believe the Swap Shop forum is only for banjos that are listed for sale in the classifieds of this website. Your banjo is only being offered for sale through Craigslist.
@sirtwangalot Daniel is correct: in order to post in the swap shop forum, you must have an ad in the classified. Here's the rule:
The Swap Shop forum is for discussing listings (not just banjos but also accessories) found in the Classifieds system. The forum format allows for easy, public discussion of classified listings, so everyone can be informed about listings.
and also this:
You may post a classified ad for an item which is posted for sale on another website (such as eBay or a website you manage), as long as your listing conforms to the classified system rules listed here.
So if you aren't selling it through the Hangout, then you can't post it in the Swap Shop Forum but it can go on another forum. Put an ad in the classifieds for your item and then let Lynne know and she can move your thread back to the swap shop.
