Blatant commercialism

MODS: I'm not sure if this is the right journal for this. If not, be gentle and redirect me? Thanks...


I've got the following things for sale (I'm moving and need to get rid of a lot of stuff).

I have NO idea what a fair price is for most of this, so you'll have to make suggestions. This will all go on craigslist with pictures, soon enough, but this is advance warning.

All this stuff is as-is. That means that it works -- it's not broken or trashed unless mentioned. You gotta come get it. You have until the end of February unless mentioned otherwise.

I'm a Microsofty going on disability leave. I'm moving from a giant 2br apartment in the Eastside (Bothell) to a smallish share-rent in Seattle. This means I have to get rid of a lot of stuff (I'm a packrat). It sucks for me, because I have to let go of a lot of... stuff, that I've accumulated over the years. It is good for you, because I'm selling a lot of mostly-brand-new toys and useful items for incredibly cheap. I used to be semi-rich (Microsoft) and since I've always been single/no kids, I had nothing else to spend the money on. How I wish I had all this wasted money back!

My prices are wild-ass guesses. You can suggest your own prices, and I may well go with it if you can give me a reason why I should take your price over my own (I'm not so desperate that I'm just going to give this stuff away -- if I'm going to give it away dirt cheap, I'll actually GIVE it away to charity, so you snooze, you loose).

I digress. Here's the list:

1. king-sized bed. I'm moving into a smaller space and this monsrosity has to go. I'm willing to sell it really cheap ($350 -- I paid almost 1400 for it), including a set of sheets and a dust ruffle (beige) if you want them. I'll miss my giant football-field o' bed, but I can't keep it and can't move it. If you wanna buy it, you have *glances at calendar* about two weeks. And you have to pick it up. Complete with frame, mattress and box springs. The mattress is in mostly good shape. It has one ugly stain (I swear, it's balsamic vinegar from a horrible salad accident -- it only LOOKS nasty. Who'd have known that balsamic vinegar would stain so badly?) but is otherwise pretty good. It's a Sealy Posteurpedic, no broken springs or dents or nothing. A steal. You gotta come pick it up. Sales on this one are final, since I'm not willing to hassle with hauling this beast around.

2. barely used full-sized wet/dry shop vac. I bought this once thinking I was going to use it to clean up and then I discovered that my regular push vacuum worked much better. Go figure. Maybe... hmm... 75 bucks for it?

3. Viewsonic 21" P815 monitor. This beast (the size of one of those cube refrigerators) is actually a great monitor. In this day and age of LCD's, I just can't justify the desk space for it, but it is frankly a marvelous display. The 21" viewable space is great for artists and the like (lots of screen real estate). I think it will go up to something like 2048x1024 easily, and has great color clarity. Doesn't hum or whine or anything. It's used, but in perfect condition. Cheap. Like... 100 bucks anyone?

4. Older VCR and DVD player. These were both, at one time, top of the line. Both of them need a bit of work. The VCR is mostly just dusty (plays fine, doesn't eat tapes, is S-VHS, etc.) -- it's just... well, it's a VCR. I watch movies on my computer now, so why have a VCR? The DVD player is in good condition (and I can rassle up the remote, maybe), but needs to have the lens cleaned and aligned -- right now, all DVD movies show as "unreadable." You can have both together for... hmm, 50 bucks. Package deal.

5. Epson Stylus Color 760 inkjet printer. Works fine. It even has a cartridge in it, although I'd be amazed if that cartridge still worked after a year and a half of no use. 50 bucks.

6. Ensoniq ASR-X Pro Turbo. Selling on Ebay for about 600 bucks. It's a hardware sampler. I do all my music creation on the computer these days. In perfect condition. You'll have to get your own cabling. 250 dollars, as is. Works fine.

7. 8 foot (I think) inflatable dinghy. I bought this from Fred Meyers a while back. It's nothing special, but it doesn't leak and is actually a kinda nice boat. It's even got oarlocks and a place to mount a trolling motor (I think -- I never used that). It's not boxed, so you'll get a big ball of crumpled rubber, but since it's about 150 dollars new and the only real difference is you won't have the pretty package, it's a steal for 50 bucks. I'll even throw in my pair of aluminum oars.

I'll edit this and put in more. I'm also going to try to take digital pictures of these. I also have a CRAPLOAD of computer hardware and a couple of other pieces of musical equipment that I'm going to get rid of, I'll edit this post (maybe). I'm also gonna post this up on craigslist.

Anything you buy off me you can return if it's irredeemably broken or whatever, besides the bed (since it's huge). Just bring me back what you bought from me, and I'll give you your money back, for, let's say, a month. After that, I'm gonna consider the money spent and the item gone.

Remember, if you're interested, don't put it off, because after March 1st, most of the non-easily-storable stuff WILL be donated to charity or given to friends.

Just email me if interested. I can come up with a few digital photos quicker.
