Where to sell used goods locally?

I would like to get rid of some decent electronics that are used but probably still have some value. (55" TV, laptops, etc).

Anyone know of a good place around Pilsen / Bridgeport that buys and resales used goods? (aside from Craigslist, etc)

fireworks or semi automatics?

I am at the 2200 block of 21st place. In the middle of the night there was a whole string of popping sounds in rapid succession. Did anyone hear?
It was difficult to tell if it was fireworks or semi automatic weapons.

  • Instead of training myself watching youtube videos on different gun sounds, I have decided to move out of the neighborhood.

  • I have been around Pilsen since the late nineties and have witnessed dozens of shootings, including seeing people die on the sidewalk. But I am not willing to deal with this anymore
