Stoop Sale (Was) This Weekend.

On Sunday, June 19, we hauled our remaining trappings onto the sidewalk in hopes of selling them to passersby at bargain prices. All the available items on the blog were for sale, plus lots of little stuff that we haven’t posted, including:

  • espresso machine
  • coffee grinder
  • books
  • CDs
  • fabric
  • random housewares
  • and more!

Air Conditioner: SOLD


Fedders window air conditioner.¬† Not sure of the BTUs but it does fine on our 150 sq. ft. living room. 20″ wide.


Pedestal Fan: SOLD


It’s summertime; you need a fan. This one’s on an adjustable-height pedestal. It oscillates. It has three speeds and a unicorn sticker in the middle.


Vintage dresser: SOLD

Beautiful old 4-drawer dresser, solid wood, with distinctive wood handles. The drawers have dovetail joints and dust panels between the drawers. Walnut stain.

The dresser has a few superficial nicks and scratches, as befits its age, but is otherwise in hale and lovely condition. I’ve had this dresser my entire life and I’m sad to see it go, but I’m sure it will make a worthy addition to someone’s home.


30″ wide
46″ tall
17″ deep

$75. Email us at takeourtrappings dot gmail dot com if you’re interested.

Turntable cartridge: DISCARDED

This item has been discarded and is no longer available.

Stanton 400.V3 turntable cartridge. Never used: it turned out to be the wrong size for our record player.

Here’s what the box has to say:

“The 400.V3 is the most durable, cost-effective, and one of the loudest cartridges on earth. the 400.V3 is Stanton’s ‘mouse that roared’ with a whopping 10.0 mV output level.”

Though we disapprove of the lack of parallelism in that first sentence, it does pretty much say it all.

Purchased for $20 and never used. Yours for $10. Email us at takeourtrappings dot gmail dot com if you’re interested.

Seagrass baskets: SOLD

Four handwoven seagrass baskets from Ikea. Knipsa, they’re called. They’re nice and sturdy, great for storage, but a little more modern looking than most baskets. Perfect condition.

Dimensions: 12.5″ on all sides.

Four available. Email us at takeourtrappings dot gmail dot com if you’re interested.

Here’s what it looks like with a cat in it:

Evolution MIDI Keyboard: PACKED

Evolution MK-249C2 MIDI keyboard. Works great. Good for MIDI use; also can be attached by USB and used to control soft synths. Lots of control knobs available. Full-size keys.

Comes with power supply and subtle but effective “Don’t Even Think About It” sticker next to pitchwheel.

Was $90 but we didn’t get a good buyer so it’s already packed for moving. Email us at takeourtrappings at gmail dot com if you’re interested.
