Stuff for sale in Tucson and a Question Feb. 15th, 2014 @ 07:44 pm
I have some cow hides (tanned leather) to sell and a really nice pair of Men's 9 1/2D cap toe paddock boots. They're pigskin lined, very breathable and great for horseback riding or just walking around. (I did the latter.) They were made in the U.S.A., by the Bond Boot Company (California).

I'm looking for $120 for all three hides.

And for the paddock boots, I'm looking for $50.

And now my question: Is there a FB comm that's comparable in any real way to what this comm was? If you know of a FB comm with good exchanges about what's happening in Tucson, culture, politics, etc., and were rental advice and a few things for sale might also pop up, which comms are those?

Oaxacan wood carvings Dec. 1st, 2013 @ 08:58 am
Does anyone have any places they'd recommend for a dude like me who's thinking about buying someone a Oaxacan wood carving for Christmas? I'm referring to those brightly colored, very abstract/stylized animal carvings. I've seen them here and there when I wasn't looking for them, but now that I'm actually looking for them, I can't remember where I've seen them. You know how that goes.

Benefit at Agua Linda Farm Oct. 26th, 2013 @ 12:10 pm

Many of you are familiar with Agua Linda Farm's fall festival.   Tomorrow is the last day of this season and they are having a benefit for Laurel's mom, who was in a horrific car accident the day before the festival opened.   All the proceeds -- admission remains $5 a person -- will go toward the mounting expenses that are resulting from the accident.


Joey Burns from Calexico will be doing a solo/acoustic show starting at 4p.m.


Further info in the photos behind the cut.  Agua Linda had been a direct-to-consumer contributer of organic and sustainable agriculture in our community for years.  I hope you will come out and support them off you are able.

Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl, R.I.P. Oct. 19th, 2013 @ 02:56 pm
Back in, what, 2010 or so, if a local act with the stature of Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl had passed away in the way that they did, this page would be blowing up.

Things change. I get that, but I just wanted to acknowledge their passing here anyway.

So, to the memory of Nowhere Man and a Whiskey Girl, Derrick and Amy Ross, may they Rest in Peace.

From the Tucson Sentinel:

From the Tucson Weekly:

I don't care for this guy Stanhope at all. What kind of guy goes on and on about how he how he did some other's guy's wife, when the guy is dealing with his wife being seriously ill in the hospital. Even if he'd planned the schtick months in advance, which I'm sure he didn't, any halfway decent person would change it up. Then to reduce Amy's illness to being his show's "cliffhanger," because she was seriously ill, due to undergo surgery and could die -- I have no time for people like that. That said, I'm including this link. You can hear Derrick's views for yourself. The image in the audio could be at odds with how you see him in the video above.

I am selling THE BEATLES Anthology 5 Disc DVD Set ($45) Aug. 11th, 2013 @ 04:02 pm

This retails for approximately $60 but I am moving and I need some extra cash. I will give it to you for $45 or your best offer.

There is very minor wear on the box but the dvds look good.

Tucson critters Aug. 3rd, 2013 @ 12:26 pm
Hello, fellow Tucsonans! What are your favorite local animals? Birds, reptiles, insects, mammals, arachnids, it matters not. Will you tell me why you think they're neat?

Tucson taxis Jul. 27th, 2013 @ 04:10 pm
There are a lot of unrated taxi companies on Yelp, so I thought I'd see what people here had for recommendations and stay-away stories. I need a ride to and from the airport for a trip next month. I think I can get a ride from a friend for the latter, but the former is so early in the morning that I feel bad about asking anyone.

Restaurant Night Fundraisers May. 8th, 2013 @ 11:01 am
Other than La Cocina, are there any local restaurants that regularly do fundraisers for nonprofits? It could either be the kind that involves bringing in a flyer to have a percentage of your total go to the nonprofit or going to the restaurant at a designated date and time, knowing that all sales from all customers will go to the nonprofit. I know there are a lot of chain restaurants that do that (e.g. Chipotle), and that information is readily available online, but I'm more interested in local ones. (I'm researching fundraising ideas.)
