We’re gearing up to host a Minecraft birthday party for a bunch of 7-year-olds tomorrow, and then I think we begin mission: clear out the house. I don’t know how much I’ll be selling vs. donating, but what’s your favorite way to buy secondhand these days? I’m looking at Facebook Marketplace far more often than Craigslist, and it alleviates some of Brandon’s fears of inviting a completely random person over to pick something up. Do I try to list some of the nicer pieces on Chairish? Round it all up and stick a sign on the front yard that says “come and get these pretty design-y things?”
(I feel like that last one’s a winner.)
On to the Honor Roll!
How Rifle Paper Co. rose while paper correspondence fell.
That cheap jacket from a brand you’ve never heard of looks too good to be true. Is it? (Short answer: yep.)
The $6 million lawsuit awarded to graffiti artists sets an interesting precedent in the art world.
Bring to me all of the high-waisted pants. Ordering a pair of these from J. Crew and feeling hopeful that they’l be good (because you know I love sister company Madewell’s high-rise jeans).
The latest (and largest so far) prime number found has more than 23 million digits!
Better than fake it ’till you make it: Pretend you’re good at it.

i kinda hate to say it because i feel like my life would be 20% worse without craigslist – but i agree on facebook marketplace – it’s really nice to be able to see who you’re dealing with before they buy your car….

Oak park moms resale group for anything even tangentially kid related. I moved away recently and still miss that group. And facebook marketplace.

Neighborhood Freebox through Facebook where mom’s post an item and leave on front porch for pickup. For bigger items I have picked up a few great finds on EBTH.com an online auction site.

If you decide to make it a yard sale, PLEASE let us know. I’m local and would love to look at your castoffs for my own old Victorian!
