2023.05.29 06:08 jondonger Best place to sell/trade stuff besides FB marketplace.

After dealing with the wonderful/questionable clientele of Facebook marketplace and ultimately permanently deleting my FB account last weekend because of it, I’m looking for other tried and true options to sell stuff. Craigslist was great when I drove to Austin for work every day, but now that I’m in Bastrop 24/7 I’d like to see what others have had good luck with. I’m a fan of buying/selling/trading tech stuff if that helps, but I’m all ears for everything. Thanks in advance!

2023.05.26 23:23 itsmourningtimeagain Where to donate used (but still OK) plywood

TLDR: Looking for a place to donate used plywood previously used to build artwork crates.
I work for a non-profit that creates and ships exhibitions. We are currently in the process of downsizing our inventory and are getting rid of about 70% of the collection. We archived all the work, but now I am stuck with tons of these wooden crates (look a little something like this).
I have broken them all down and have a large pile of plywood and boards. Does anyone have any suggestions for where I could donate it all or get rid of it? I would really like to avoid taking it to the dump, but is that my only option? Almost all of it is perfectly still usable, I have removed all the screws and nails, but I can't get all the staples (would take forever), and some have paint and glue on them, but could be easily sanded off. Largest piece is about 5ft x 5ft, and smallest is still like 2ft x 3ft. The stack is about 5ft high and growing. Easily enough for a treehouse or something, if not several.
A few notes:
-I have contacted every wood recycling plant I can find in Austin. They all say they can't recycle wood with staples in it, and a lot do not want wood that has had glue in it (re: plywood) or on it.
-Habitat for Humanity wouldn't accept it either (even though they state on their website they accept pre-used lumber materials, but I think they mean un-used wood leftover from a build)
-I contacted a place that tears down houses and claims to recycle the materials for other builds. They said they couldn't take it either because, even though they have a branch/office in Austin, they do not have a warehouse in Austin so they couldn't put it anywhere. (So I guess when they deconstruct a house in Austin, they truck it somewhere else?)
-Someone at Austin Creative Reuse mentioned they might want it when I was there last, but I reached out and haven't heard back. I will try them again I guess, but they haven't been returning my messages/emails.
Craigslist free and Buy Nothing groups will be my next bet. But I put some of it up there a few months ago and no bites.
Lastly, I know there are a few junk haulers/remover companies, but that will be a last resort, my supervisor said. So if no luck here or craigslist, then that's what we will do. But really trying to get this much wood to a place that can use it. I can send photos if anyone here is interested. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks.

New-to-me Austin Custom Brass small bell pocket trumpet, found on my local craigslist for a little more than half off retail. An somewhat inferior instrument to my Bb Bach Strad in most respects, but entirely playable and just delightful to screw around with.

2023.05.15 18:58 I_sit Housing Offered - 3bed/2.5bath Duplex in East Austin $2475 great price

My girlfriend and I are in a bit of a pickle. We were both layed off and need to fill our old leased house to avoid paying rent on 2 properties during an overlap.
The house is big with a very large shared back yard. The yard is shared with artistic and friendly 30-somethings in the other unit. Location is off MLK between Airport and Springdale. The place is perfect for a couple or group looking to rent with an animal close to downtown. We have a 90lb dog and it worked out great for us. Check out the link and message here or on craigslist if interested. Thanks!

2023.05.15 07:18 4acomet where do you buy used DJ gear?

Hi. I used to live in Austin, Texas before relocating back to Vienna, Austria during covid times. I had to leave my pioneer nexus 2 setup behind and every shipping option i've come across costs me around 3 grand +, since i already have a new setup here i just want to sell the US stuff. My question to you American DJs: Where do you look for used gear?
I found only 1 listing for a CDJ2000nxs2 on Reverb so guess its not the place where DJs look. Is FB marketplace a feasible option? Would you rather check on craigslist?
would love for the setup to be used again instead of standing in a storage room so any advise is appreciated.

2023.05.14 23:49 marcstarts Replacing Stolen Gravel Bike

Welp, I'm finally back in the market after nearly 2 years of not having a bike. My previous bike a 2016 jamis renegade elite was stolen in October of 2021 and I sadly haven't had the finances to replace it. I had bought it back in 2018 for a steal imo right at 1500 usd. And now I'm hoping to find something similar for ideally a similar (sub $2000 usd) pricetag. From what I can see it seems the market for bikes these days has gone up significantly or I really did find a needle in a haystack back in 2018.
Currently looking at a couple different builds on ebay/craigslist a 2015 trek carbon Boone 9, and an ICAN X build. Both asking around $1700
For what it's worth I'm also about 5'7, 29 in inseam so typically 52-54cm s-m if anyone finds anything cool that might fit my needs.
Ideally I'm aiming for a carbon frame, Shimano 105 group set or better and something that might make sense to purchase a road wheel set to switch up for faster riding.
Maybe I should attempt to buy a frame and build it out idk?
Edit: Currently in Austin Texas for what that's worth!
Thanks ahead of time!

2023.04.28 20:58 liketherites Budget Recap: $21k for 60 people in Austin, TX

I planned my wedding in less than 6 months and snuck in an elopement to boot. I started with a budget of $15k knowing nothing about weddings in a HCOL area and I quickly got overwhelmed, questioned the whole wedding industry complex, had a friend forcibly gift us travel points and their experience as a photographer to elope, had very generous and hands-on parents, and at the end I was looking at total spent of $25k.
The end result was just fabulous and I'm glad I took the risk on an independant florist with no presence on theknot and rolled with the venue having a strange layout. Having 60 people was the perfect number and I did feel like I was able to talk to everyone.
The only negatives were that the bartender was a bit of a dingbat and the coordinator, who was very new to the industry, didn't run enough interference on the batty bartender. E.g., bartender kept coming to me, the bride, about there being no wine when she had only gone through 1 bottle of white and the other bottles were right there on the table... The bartender also, apparently, would read out only the name of the brewery when asked what kind of beer was available. It was odd.
The coordinator wasn't quite independent enough to know to go do things without instructions and didn't quite grasp that she needed to be out of the photographer's way. The spirit was there, though, and a more experience coordinator from their company came later in the evening to help support her. We had originally thought that we could do without a coordinator but after reading horror stories, decided to get one last minute. It was money well spent, so, if this is a line item you're on the fence about, suck it up and do it.
Here're my costs breakdowns:
Elope Hotel, Fees, Travel, Rental Car, & Extras $3,992
Reception Venue (insurance, cleaning) $3,575
Photography (5 hours) $1,891
Bride Attire and Alterations (shoes, veil, crown) $3,063
Groom Attire (indochino) $550
Rings $542
MUA Only & Tip (hair done by family) (trial, 3 bridesmaids) $740
Catering & Tips (fajita bar, queso, guac) $4,084
Bartender $634
Bar Supplies, Liquor, Wine, & Beer (dad donated kegs) $382
Cakes (homemade 3 tier cake; not for the faint of heart) (supplies, ingredients, groom's cake) $360
Décor and Styling (candles, votives, holders, vases, signs) $628
Entertainment (bought sound system, used a playlist) $300
Florals (3 bouquets, 9 bouts/corsages, 8 centerpieces) $1,386
Favors & Gifts (PJs, hair accessories, hankies, suspenders, tie) $492
Coordinator (day of) $1,088
Equipment and Rentals (chairs, tables) $250
Overflow Parking Lot Rental $150
Champ Glasses (off craigslist) $100
Tablecloths (off craigslist) $100
Instax Camera, Film, & Photo Guest Book $380
Stationery (printed pics, invites, postage, shower thank yous) $200
OTHER (makeup, parking fees, dog walking, fabric) $481
Elopement Portion -$3,992

2023.04.26 17:00 crimehive 6 Serial Killers That Were Never Caught

6. The Servant Girl Annihilator.
Austin, Texas residents were in shock over an apparently never-ending string of violent murders between 1884 and 1885. Every murder occurred while the victims were supposedly safe in their own beds. O Henry came up with the moniker Annihilator for the servant girl in a letter he wrote to a friend. Apart from the frequent invasions of the maid Annihilators, the town is dreadfully boring. They keep things interesting during the gloomy nighttime hours.
The killings abruptly stopped on Christmas Eve 1885. Some others think they only stopped when he got on a ship to start his terror campaign somewhere else.
5. The Oakland County Child Killer, also known as the Babysitter
The worst dread of any parent is losing a child. Tragically, that nightmare came true for four families in Oakland County, Michigan.
Four children were abducted and killed during a 13-month period. The deaths led to the biggest murder investigation in American history at the time. Many witnesses came forward, but they offered no firm evidence. According to a witness, one of the lads was talking to a man in a blue AMC Gremlin, which prompted authorities to track down every gremlin owner in the nation.
Other leads concerning the cause of the abductions have ranged from pedophile rings to demonic rituals. Nonetheless, solutions regarding the killer or killers are still elusive.
4. Charlie Chop-off.
Black American lads were the sole victims of this violent attacker. His horrifying reputation stemmed from the terrible harm he would cause to his victims. Nonetheless, one of Charlie's victims did live through his attack. Police also detained a suspect named Erno Soto in 1974. kidnapping a Puerto Rican boy while being caught in the process. For interrogation, Soto was brought in. The youngster who survived claimed he might have resembled his assailant, but he was unsure.
The Manhattan State Hospital, a mental health facility where Soto was a prisoner, maintained that Soto could not be guilty despite confessing to one of the murders, however, they did note that it was possible he may have escaped on their watch.
3. The Long Island serial killer, also known as the Craigslist Ripper.
This murderer has a long history of crime. A police canine in training discovered the first body in 2010. Soon after, detectives discovered more in the vicinity, raising the prospect of a serial killer. After the region was investigated further, fragments of remains were discovered all throughout Suffolk County, New York's Gilgo Beach. All of the victims who were murdered over a 20-year span were involved in the sex industry, and several of them advertised their services on Craigslist. About this murderer, not much is known. The investigation is still underway, except that he is morbidly prolific.
2 Jack the Ripper
In the late Victorian century, this unnamed serial killer committed a string of horrifying killings that caused alarm in London's Whitechapel neighborhood. It's difficult to imagine any serial murderer who has sparked as much lore, inquiry, or ideas about his identity, in part because of the deaths' exceptional brutality and the insults the killer conveyed to the irate police. His name now almost has a legendary quality.
The most well-known Prank was a letter from Hell that was sent along with one of his victims' kidney halves. He asserted that he had consumed the other half.
1. The Zodiac.
The most elusive murderer in American history, without a doubt. The Zodiac Killer resembles a character out of a horror movie. A writer of letters to the police as well. By using riddles and intricate cryptograms, he boasted about his accomplishments and demanded that his letters be printed on page one of the newspapers, or else the death toll would increase. Before committing his crimes, this killer would prowl remote places in search of his victims, who were mostly young couples. Others have suggested that the Phantom and Zodiac killers may be the same person due to similarities in their methods and physical characteristics. Whatever the case, the Zodiac has left behind a brutal legacy of His own.

2023.04.22 04:31 piratefaellie PSA: If you live in Tx, Nm, Co, Wy, Id, Mt, Wa, look out for this man trying to ride a completely unconditioned horse across the country

Long story short, some idiot in Texas has quit his job and decided to ride from Texas to Seattle on horseback, something that's totally feasible if done right. The problem comes from the fact that he bought a completely unconditioned horse off of craigslist and is using him as his ONLY horse for the entire trip. No pack horses, no horses to switch to, nothing. He had the horse for 2 or 3 weeks total before setting off on his 'journey' and his plan has been to freeload off of nice ranchers and let the horse graze on grass (he didn't plan anything else food wise for his journey).
It's been 12 days I think. In that time, the horse Shiok has lost a significant amount of weight, appeared dehydrated, developed edema and saddle sores, and is thought to be lame on his back left. The horse got loose once already. The man seems to have 0 horse knowledge, has had the bit upside down and twisted in the horse's mouth this entire time, digs his spurs into the horse (yes, spurs on an endurance ride), and has actively refused medicine, food, water, and help for his horse.
Texas welfare laws for horses aren't good. The horse was seen at a vet clinic yesterday, but has since been released - he was possibly boarding it there as he's paranoid someone might steal the horse. Right now the community is trying to raise awareness in any way possible. If you live in any of the above states, be on the lookout.. idk what can be done at this point, but I think people are trying to collect video evidence of the horse's condition to try and build a case.
articles/sources to read:
I really don't want to promote the guy's socials, but if you want to go direct to the source you can find him under the name 2raw2ride. fitting since he wore completely through his jeans on day 3 and needed someone to get him to walmart to buy new ones. You can also find more info by searching #SaveShiok on tiktok.

2023.04.18 00:17 DDL_Equestrian 2raw2ride

This account is blowing up all over Equestrian TikTok and has been picked up by mainstream media.
This tech bro who was on Love is Blind bought a horse off Craigslist a month ago and is riding from Austin to Seattle in 100 days. That’s approx 25 miles a day on a horse with zero training for long distance riding.
Please do not follow or support this maniac. It is pure animal cruelty. Nobody in the horse community can see this ending in anything but tragedy for his poor horse.

2023.04.17 15:02 FugueSegue A collection of laserdiscs for sale/free

Greetings, everyone!
I used to collect laserdiscs decades ago. I was introduced to the medium by an old friend in the late 1980s. He and I built small collections of discs for almost a decade. About 20 years ago, I decided I didn't want my discs anymore and so I gave them to him. Unfortunately, he passed away last year and I inherited the entire collection.
For the last year these laserdiscs have been sitting in plastic boxes in my "storage" room in my house. When my friend was alive, he kept them indoors, upright, and on shelves. Many of them are in plastic sleeves. To the best of my knowledge, almost all of them are in good shape.
Here's the deal. I absolutely do not want these laserdiscs because I haven't collected media of any kind for many years. I don't want to go through the trouble of selling them individually. I live in the United States. If someone drives to my house, they can have the whole collection FOR FREE. If I have to negotiate a deal where I have to drive half way to meet someone, then it will cost $1 per mile that I drive. I suppose I could ship them somehow but I have no idea how much it would cost so it would be "free" plus the cost of shipping.
EDIT: I live in Tennessee.
This is the first place on the internet that I've announced this collection's availability. If no one here is interested, I'm going to post the same deal on Craigslist. I'm also open to recommendations about what I could do with this collection.
Here is the list. An asterix (*) indicate duplicate copies. My late friend collected more mainstream movies like Back to the Future. I collected more esoteric movies like Seven Samurai. So that explains the odd collection of titles.

I found a local buyer. I had NO IDEA that laserdiscs were still a collectable item. That's why I came here first. I figured that there had to be someone on this planet who wanted these things and this was the best place to find them.
I really appreciate everyone's help and advice! Best of luck to all you collectors out there!
