moving sale

I’m moving out of my apartment in a few weeks, and the less stuff I have to take with me, the better. Please, take my stuff! Drop a line to if you’re interested in anything.


  1. When I say “or best offer”, I mean it! Pretty much any ofthis that isn’t sold by the end of september (possibly but not necessarily excepting the PowerMac) is getting donated to HousingWorks Thrift Store for the tax writeoff. I need this stuff out of my apartment, stat. MAKE ME AN OFFER!

  2. The converse side of #1 is that to buy any of this stuff, you must be willing to pick it up in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York City, by September 28th. I don’t have the time to ship any of this, and in most cases it wouldn’t be worth it.

So without further ado:
