Curb Alert

We've been meaning to get rid of our old computer desk since... 2010 or so. Now that my new loom needs to be set up, I'm a bit more motivated. So we finally dragged it out to the curb and put it up on both Craigslist and Kijiji. An hour later, it's gone. Huge relief, and huge corner of the spare bedroom now vacated. It's one of those things I would have done years ago if I had known it was going to be so easy.

I think this picture really helped sell it (thanks Kirby). I mentioned in the ad that the top shelf was perfect for cat storage.

I've been working on one of those year end summary things, but in the meantime, I just noticed that a silver of one of my fabrics (Knotty Pine) is visible in a graphic on the Spoonflower main page. It's a little thing, but a nice thing.

My PayPal dispute will end in 30 minutes if all goes well. The seller had 10 days to respond to the claim, and has so far not done so. If he doesn't, I get a full refund. Loser. I'll be so relieved when this is over (and my $70 is safely back in my account).

I just got off the phone with a Craigslist seller... as it turns out, she lives in this building, two floors up. It looks like this transaction will be even easier than the last one-- don't even need to put on shoes!

The purge

Our big project this weekend has been getting our clutter under control. Our den closet is stuffed full of junk, and the storage locker down on the parking level has stuff in it that we haven't touched since we moved in 2000. Clearly, we do not have much need for it, whatever it is. I think I might have a pinata down there, among other useless items.

So! Upon deciding to get rid of Marshie's beloved Commodore 64, we dusted it off and posted it on Craigslist. Within about 30 seconds we had a response. We're meeting this dude later today to make the exchange. Well, that was easy! Yay Craigslist!

My mother has also told me that you can drop off textbooks of any kind at any police station, and they will distribute them up north where they have a severe lack of anything educational, apparently. We've got a huge stack of those together as well.

When I woke up this morning, I had not started my Christmas shopping. Now, I am finished.
I love you, internets.

Interesting article floating around re: misspellings in eBay listings. People spell things wrong in the item descriptions and wonder why they get no bids. The flipside of this is, of course, people getting great bargains by intentionally searching on commonly misspelled words (and I'm sure this article royally pissed them off by publicizing their technique). Then again, bad spellers who buy from other bad spellers would be completely oblivious to what's happened.

Here are some of my finds, whether or not they might actually yield great bargains is up for debate. They may have few bids, but the reserve prices can still be quite high:

earings/errings (one pair of "errings" is purported to have "all stones in tack!")
atomatic - yielded several watches
candelstick/candelholder (and there are a couple of sterling "candalabras" with no bids)
