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

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,
