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 was perusing the "Arts & Crafts" section of Craigslist this morning and found an ad for a sewing machine, which listed a bunch of different accessories, as well as "a rubber stamp collection" sort of as an afterthought. I wrote asking if they'd consider selling the stamps separately, and if so could I please see a picture? They wrote back:

First of all please tell me if you accept a delivery process. If yes let me know which is your best price for what you need. Inc shipping and insurance. Have a nice day.

Wait... what? You want want me to quote a price for shipping on an item that's a complete mystery? Sounds positively scam-o-riffic. The email came from someone called Cask Mith, which even sounds like a fake spam name.

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.
