Hello everyone! My husband and I are in need of more than a few household items. Check your basements, attics and garages. We know you must have stuff like this laying around and collecting dust. We'll pay decently for them and will pick up/ load items ourselves (within reasonable proximity of Holland, MI):

MICROWAVE, 5 years old or less, no mini-microwaves, up to $50.

GAS RANGE, 8 years old or less, stove AND oven must work, will not repair, will consider all, but preferences for black, stainless steel or mostly black or stainless steel, up to $300-$400.

MEDICINE CABINETS for bathrooms, we need two of them, do NOT need to match, they are for two different bathrooms, up to $50.

BOOKSHELVES, BOOKCASES, WALL SHELVING, any size, any condition, we don't care if they're scratched up, dinged up, dented or just plain ugly as long as they're wood and somewhat sturdy. Also interested in laminate selving if it's in decent shape. Up to $30-$40.

SMALL DRESSERS, END TABLES, NIGHT STANDS, SMALL TABLES AND SIDE BOARDS, will consider items in any condition as long as they are sturdy, preference for wood, up to $50.

SINKS - PEDESTAL/ WALL MOUNTED/ OTHER, we need a pedestal sink for one bathroom and some kind of other sink for the other bathroom (not picky on style). No cracks. We have not researched prices for sinks yet, so I have no price range to post. Make offers.

TOILET, just needs to be a working unit, no cracks, doesn't need to have a seat (we'll buy our own). Make offers.

WARDROBE/ PANTRY/ CABINETS/ STORAGE, we need this kind of stuff too, price range too great to list, depends on what you've got.

FREEZERS, preference for chest style over upright, but will consider all, email us with age, size or capacity and how much you want for it.

Go ahead and send offers, descriptions, pictures, prices and all that good stuff to griffin.rider@gmail.com. Please specify location so we may figure driving distances when considering your items. I will reply to all emails. Thank you so much!

anyone? [Oct. 28th, 2005|06:52 pm]
where hipsters and bums come together


My older brother Robbie (lives in detroit) is considering coming to Grand Rapids to play a few shows with his band. They've been together for a lonnng time now, theyre recording a new CD soon, and theyre awesome.

Does anyone know places in GR they could play? Ive thought of skelletones, the intersection, the orbit room, and morningstar 75 so far.

Let me know, any place you can think of, they need as much exposure as possible, and they arent snobby about tiny venues or anything like that.

Thank you.

dresser and bed for sale (for cheaper!) [Sep. 4th, 2005|05:15 pm]
where hipsters and bums come together

Not enough interest in my bed and dresser I put up for sale the other day, so I'm knockin down the prices.

If you didn't see it before:
I'm moving to the other side of the state and have a bed and dresser I'm trying to sell. Dresser is old but in good shape and pretty big (5 drawers with 2 doors covering 3 of the drawers). Bed is only 6 months old and is a twin size captain's bed that has 3 drawers underneath and a bookshelf headboard. Also have a mattress if anyone wants it - twin size, 6 months old, pretty comfortable.

Was selling bed (with bookshelf headboard and mattress) and dresser as a set for $175. NOW SELLING SET OF BED, HEADBOARD, MATTRESS, AND DRESSER FOR $125. Before, if buying seperately: bed with bookshelf headboard - $100, dresser - $50, mattress - $25. NOW, IF BUYING SEPERATELY: BED WITH BOOKSHELF HEADBOARD - $65, DRESSER - $40, MATTRESS - $20.

You will need to pick it up and be able to get it out yourself. Needs to be picked up BEFORE September 8th.

Email (TragicEpiphany@aol.com) or IM me (eightiesbabeyo on AIM) if you want to know anything else. I'm pretty set on the above prices, but I'm not opposed to someone making an offer.
