I'm moving to Spain and need to get rid of lots of stuff.  Women’s clothing, furniture, Ikea dressers, women’s clothing (L, 14, 16), cookbooks, design/art/architecture books, women’s inline skates, kitchenware (plates, glasses, etc.), cookware…and lot’s more!
No early birds please. Everything must GO !

1st January 2008

vardocargo10:13pm: For every new item that comes into my home, I'm trying to find a new home for an existing item...
I currently have a number of things (jeans, dresses, skirts, etc) posted on eBay, including plus sized and vintage items. Nearly everything (with the exception of two velvet dresses and a steel boned corset) is starting under $10. Please do take a peek. I definitely combine ship and all items are coming from a smoke-free home.

On to the auctions!

vardocargo9:30pm: Holiday best....
In a shameless display of brazen huckstering, I wanted to post a mention of my current eBay auctions. I have a bunch of Holiday and party-appropriate dresses, jackets, and the like up for bid, including:

-a couple of Stop Staring dresses
-vintage delights
-a number of plus-sized pieces
-a TON of velvet.

Among the standouts are a vintage 1950s opera coat, a black velvet Victorian style blouse, and a cobalt blue crushed velvet tuxedo jacket.

Also, if your tastes run to the retro and you have the itch to stitch, I have a number of vintage patterns in my Etsy shop that will keep you busy all through the winter months!

Thank you in advance for looking and helping to make my December just a bit more merry!

in_motu_proprio5:10pm: Size 22-26 Clothes and Accessories
Do you need some clothes size 22-26 Women's? I may have just what you need. I'm trying to get rid of some of my old clothes, and would like to make a couple of bucks so that I can get some new clothes. I'd like to have all of these out of my house by the first of the year if possible. As it stands, I'm willing to do $3 shipping on everything except shoes under the cut tag. (That includes packaging!) Shoes would have to be a little more, like $5 due to the weight. Paypal is my preferred method of payment, but if you don't have it/can't do it, we can work something out.

I'd love to put some of these well-loved, gently worn, clothes into your hands. Prices are on each item, but everything is negotiable. The more you buy, the more likely I am to cut prices on stuff! Oh, and the spot on the pictures is on my lens, but I can't seem to get it off. Sorry!

Happy shopping!

Clicky, Clicky for cute clothes!Collapse )

13th December 2006

free_and_flawed8:57am: I'm moving back to Chicago on the 23rd and throughout my various moves, I've acquired a lot of furniture. Unfortunately December is not the prime month for a yard sale. I have a lot of furniture that is pretty new and in very good shape. I'm not expecting a lot of money for any of it. I'd just hate to throw it away.

I don't want to buy a huge storage space at Public Storage, so I figured if someone else could get use out of a piece of my furniture, I could deliver it after I get back into the city. I can have measurements and pictures if anyone is interested in a certain item. Just make an offer. Again, not looking for a huge chunk of money, just a little something.

The list:
A black coffee table with a slide out drawer (sold)
A green and purple table (used more like a decorative shelf for plants or something)
An entertainment center with four shelves and two cabinets (pending)
A T.V. (probably a 25 inch) (sold)
A six-drawer dresser.
A white bathroom shelf that goes over and behind the toilet. (sold)
Small computer desk on wheels. (pending)
A bigger computer desk - pull out drawer & pull out shelf for keyboard, a hutch attached with four shelves. (pending)
A bookcase (sold)
A utility shelf (good for garages and basements) (sold)
A headboard with a shelf.
Two corner lamps. (one left)
A wire microwave cart with a wooden top and three shelves. (sold)

If you want a picture or measurement, just comment or email me at not_ur_star@hotmail.com

in_motu_proprio11:20am: updated list with new pictures....
Do you need some clothes size 22-28 Women's? I may have just what you need. I'm trying to get rid of some of my old clothes, and would like to make a couple of bucks so that I can get some new clothes. I'm not looking to gouge anyone, nor am I looking to schlep all the way downtown only to be stood up. If you're interested, e-mail me and we can talk prices. If you buy in bulk, we can negotiate splitting shipping.

Shirts, sweaters, pants, bathing suits, dresses, skirts, and shoes under the cut!!!Collapse )

inkylibertine12:22am: Eat organic and/or help Hurricane Katrina survivors
Bubamara Pizza is collecting donations for survivors of hurricane Katrina. For the next couple of months, if you order a pizza (honestly the best in town, btw) or other (organic!) meal for delivery, the driver will collect your donation of clothes, toiletries, small toys for children, pet supplies, etc. - whatever you can contribute.

The owner told me about it over the phone when I ordered tonight. The driver was a bit surly and less than cooperative but when I called back to tell the owner he didn't want to take the donation, the owner assured me he is committed to doing this to help people in the southern states. You can also just drop off donations yourself at Bubamara Pizza, 4607 N Wolcott, Chicago, IL after 5 p.m.

Again, this will be going on for the next couple of months since, as he put it, these people will need help for a long time, not just in the next couple of days. If you have questions, call him up and ask him at 773-334-2633. I don't work there or know him personally; I just said I'd help spread the word. If you live in Chicago or know people who do, please pass on the info. Thanks.

Sorry if this isn't allowed; feel free to delete.

catbirdgirl12:08pm: devo assistance needed!
my younger brother never visits- and he really wants to come to the Devo concert in September (9/24)- but of course, it's all sold out.

Does anyone out there have an extra ticket that they could sell for a reasonable price, in the name of family togetherness? he lives in Phila and I live in Chicago.

email me at catbirdgirl@yahoo.com

damienone12:11pm: spring cleaning
so, i am always willing to trade burned cd's...
i have a few mixes that i would love to trade too...

i guess i love getting mixes from people because the way they arrange music is never the way you would, i mean you never know what sounds good to anyone, really. Its kindof like i love being surprised when someone puts guns and roses on a mix next to bob dylan, and it works...

so mixes are always easy for me to trade. you know, an envelope in the mail. postage costs 68 cents...pretty cheap...

yeah, and with my spring cleaning, lots of other things for trade, but ill post them all later...

Current Mood: curious
