Some good alley finds!!

There are some really nice pieces of furniture in the alley between Yates and Oglesby mid 7700 block; dressers with the drawers, a wardrobe, a china cabinet with glass in place and wired for lighting.
They all look like quality older pieces, wood drawers and backs, no MDF. Finishes are rough but this is a good find for a handy person to fix up, use or sell!
Garbage day is tomorrow so move fast!!

  • Mickie53 Be kind, and be generous with your kindness.

    Your concerns are probably well founded. While I certainly would never advise anyone to take anything with upholstery or padding, hardwood furniture can be dismantled to clean so I think it’s safe.
    As an ER nurse I’ve seen many a bug brought in on patients and we don’t throw out our equipment like gurneys and beds after they are used! Lol! We’d go broke!

  • Shepisces Caring Resident

    Lol! I shuddered at "seeing many a bug ON patients!". Nurses desrve so much more recognition! Thank you for all you do. But yes, I can imagine the daily cleaning and sanitizing that takes place. I've gotten an item or two from Craigslist. One being a GORGEOUS white chair with beautiful embroidery fabric. I was able to clean it well, no bugs thank goodness, and its now a staple peice in the living room.

When it comes to daily headlines, the black middle class is nearly invisible. The news tends to focus on dysfunction in poor black neighborhoods, confrontations with police, disappointing achievements in urban schools. There's a lot missing from that narrative. To find out more, we talk with journalist Bob Herbert, who wrote and produced the documentary “Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class.” He brings decades of reporting and analysis together to explain what African-American families have confronted in pursuing the American Dream.
