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)

While the communities have similar issues, there will be that tendency to elect "one of our own". For some, "one of our own" is someone from our neighborhood.

The race for Cook County Commissioner, 2nd District will very interesting. The 2nd District includes communities on the West and South Sides, including North Lawndale and Englewood. While the communities have similar issues, there will be that tendency to elect "one of our own". For some, "one of our own" is someone from our neighborhood. For some, "one of our own" is one who is easily controlled. For others, "one of our own" is someone with whom we can identify culturally, regardless of where they live.

When I speak of "culturally", I'm not speaking of race or ethnicity, but about those intangibles that reflect similar values and political philosophies.

I don't know who all will be running. Technically, no one is a candidate until s/he makes the ballot. When the final cut comes, I hope there will be candidates with a demonstrated record of leadership, community service, good judgment; the willingness to carefully weigh and analyze the issues without being a rubber stamp; courage to speak truth to power and be a true advocate for the voters; strength of character (honesty and integrity) and loyalty, and the ability to put the voters' interests above his/her own personal and political gain. If you know of such a candidate, please share below.

  • Mitchellfred Sixty-year resident of North Lawndale/24th ward

    The POTUS wanted to know if he can "pardon" himself...is the jury still out? Fred Mitchell would make a good candidate. He will be declaring himself as a "write-in" candidate.

Pilsen Open Studios XV

http://www.chicagotribune.com/hoy/ct-pilsen-artists-open-up-their-studios-on-their-quinceanera-20171020-story.html

"Although most artists are Latino, not everyone uses the same aesthetic and not everyone makes folk art. The Latin American community is just as complex in styles and philosophies as what you are going to find in the Art Institute of Chicago."

    Pilsen artists open up their studios on their 'quinceañera'
    15 years ago, Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events designated October as Chicago Artists' Month. They sent a letter to the muralist Héctor Duarte to propose the idea that he open up his workshop to the public, located across the street from the National Museum of Mexican Art, and offer him some publicity in their brochure.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • In the 15 years of the Open Studios, many of us that live our life in Pilsen/ Heart of Chicago area. we are not allowed to visit the art studios. People with mobility disabilities are excluded due to no access to the studios locations. Maybe that should be included in such articles. Many of the businesses on 18th Street exclude those with disabilities on a daily basis,
