Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Baby shower for a low-income family
By Laura Marrich [ Thu May 17 2012 2:49 PM ]
Usually, the Found on Santa Fe Craigslist blog is reserved for tongue-in-cheek repostings of ridiculous Southwest furniture, unicorn mirrors, semi-used magical equipment and the like. But this one isn’t. I’d just like to share this woman’s request for help with diapers, a double stroller and a baby swing. Her husband’s work hours were cut, and they’re expecting a medically unforeseen visit from the stork. If you have a little to spare, two struggling parents in Santa Fe county could use it.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Wobbly black metal shelf seeks good home (free)
By Laura Marrich [ Mon Apr 23 2012 3:57 PM ]
Have a heart for this poor black metal shelf. A young newly-wed couple got it as a wedding present, wife told the husband to put it togehter, husband "kinda" put it together, using only half the required number of screws, and then a year later it was out on the curb, where I rescued it. Nothing fundamentally wrong with it, except it dances its hips more than the King himself, because it's missing half its screws. Please, take it home, do something useful with it.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Organic farm formerly operated by Seeds of Change
By Laura Marrich [ Wed Feb 1 2012 3:37 PM ]
Remember when Santa Fe-based organic seed/food company Seeds of Change got bought out by behemoth Mars, Inc? And everyone said it was just a cynical green-washing PR ploy? And they were right, because Mars shut the farm down and moved operations completely out of state, but retained the company’s made-from-scratch brand and feel-good history for itself?
You can buy that farm. It’s on 14 acres in El Guique, just north of Española. The property comes with a residence, two green houses, a 5,000 square-foot processing building and an apple orchard. And it’s certified organic.
