Does anybody know of a good place to sell my read novels and my manga that is in excellent condition? I know that Page 1 is a place, but I got burned there a while ago. Is it the best deal in town or is there somewhere better?

TIA

winterlillies
Did anyone see KOAT tonight about where to get a sheet of film for the solar eclipse? I didn't get a chance to write down the name of the business that is selling precut pieces of it for $2. I'd like to go down and buy one tomorrow. Thank you!

Round frames [03 Feb 2012|05:29pm]

zerozander
Does anyone know of any place in town that carries thin, round eyeglass frames?

Round. Like a circle.

Not "trendy" rectangular or oval. Completely round. Like Steve Jobs and Harry Potter. Thin metal. Not thick-plastic-round like Harold Lloyd.

Thanks.

Quelab's Electronics (and more) indoor Swap Meet! [17 Nov 2011|11:10pm]

killbox
We wanted to do another big community tech yardsale. Then we got too busy to pull it off. Now its cold. so we are going to do it INDOORS!

Go find your old computers/gadgets/toys!!! and Get ready!

Recycling, Indoor Swap-Meet Fund-Raising to help build our community workspace for learning/teaching about how things work.

Quelab Albuquerque’s Maker/Hackerspace is a great place to tinker with electronics, and to take apart old things and build new and exciting things, its better than recycling, its upcycling. But we are drowning in castoffs spares and other gadgets. Help us empty our closets, and help yourself by emptying out your old closets of unused tech stuff. We are doing an indoor Swapmeet! Rather than standing around in the cold doing a yardsale, we are opening up inside, to host a Recycle your Junk Swap-meet.

Stay warm with Hot Cider and Coffee (Coffee thanks to http://www.aromacup.com/ )

Think of it as a Ham Radio Swap-Meet with even more interesting stuff! Its hard to categorize what all will be there, but a simple list would likely include, computers, laptops, gadgets, books, parts, cameras, optics, radios, toys, printers, test equipment, tools and possibly even furniture, lighting and craft supplies!

This is open to members and the public, everyone is encouraged to bring things to trade or sell! Donate whatever percent of the sale you feel like to Quelab! All Proceeds go towards buying parts supplies, consumables, and other operational expenses.

Meet interesting people who love tinkering with technology
Come/Bring things And tell everyone (especially your crazy uncle with a garage full of old gadgets!)

Further Details:
When: 8am-12pm Saturday November 19th
Where: Quelab, 1112 2nd street NW!

Anywhere in town where I can get STANDARD sized CD cases? Big Lots ran out, and if I can avoid eBay and online "whole sale" vendors then all the better!

Thanks.

Accessible Apartments [29 Oct 2011|03:46pm]

mereprototype
Given the way our current apartment's maintenance and management have gone downhill, my girlfriend and I are strongly considering looking for a new place over the next 6-9 months. The biggest trouble with that, though, is that we both have mobility issues and need a place on the first floor, or at least an elevator, as the only accomodation. We're both students, so if it's not close to UNM and CNM, at least being on a bus line is a requirement too.

We know that we'll have to pay more than the $500/month we're currently paying -- that includes all utilities and pet fees -- but it'd be nice to find somewhere not too much more expensive. Does anyone have suggestions on possible locations to look into?

Chock Full of Nuts? [22 Aug 2011|11:52am]

grygon
Is the coffee brand Chock Full of Nuts sold here in Albuquerque? Their website says that they are based in New York but I can't find anything on if they also distribute elsewhere.

My aunt died this weekend and one thing she told me and some friends I brought over one day was she wanted her ashes put in one of these coffee cans. (there just might be one in her cupboard but I won't be able to find out until the service since she lives out of town) Everyone laughed, and it was so HER. I will be getting some ashes to make jewelery out of for me and anyone else who wants something to wear to remember her, and storing some to spread in her mountains and ruins next year and I'd like to store them in one of these cans.

So, any idea? Anyone here have one they can freecycle to me? I've asked the freecycle as well but just in case thought I'd post here, since stories of why you are requesting something are discouraged over there.
