This Week's Feature: Scavenger Hunt 2010 results—with slideshows!
Albuquerque scavengers had 72 hours to locate more than 100 items—find out the victors in this year's hunt.
Full story: 72-Hour Scavenging People
And here are some slideshows of more photos than we had room to put in the paper.
These are Flickr-brand slideshows, so that means (1) You need Flash installed to see them (iPhone users and Flash haters may visit our Flickr galleries directly); and (2) if you want to see the name and caption you have to click the “enlarge” icon and then click the “Show Info” link in the upper-right hand corner. OK, so it’s kinda rocket science. I agree. Blame Flickr.
The Winners: Team Night Rider / Dark Circles
Maybe Next Year You’ll Try Harder ...
... but thanks for playin’! Nice work, all.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Val Kilmer’s ranch (price reduced)
By Laura Marrich [ Fri Oct 22 2010 10:18 AM ]
Even Madmartigan is sweating the economy. Val Kilmer’s real estate agent is listing the actor’s nearly 6,000-acre Pecos River property—including a 11,573-foot ranch compound with 10 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms—on Craigslist. They’re asking $23,000,000. That’s a $10 million dollar price reduction since it went on the market last year.
Virgin growths of pinon & juniper cover the hillsides. The Ranch owns both sides of approx 2 miles of the famed Pecos River which flows through canyons lined w/towering rock walls & ponderosa pines,with phenomenal fishing. The SF National Forest abuts the Ranch's N. boundary & wildlife as diverse as bear down to ring tails, beaver & possums roam the property while eagle, peregrine falcon & ducks enjoy the clear sky.
Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Free monkey
By Laura Marrich [ Thu Sep 23 2010 1:10 PM ]
Alert! The vendor purporting to offer a monkey to a good home in the “free stuff” section is a SCAM ARTIST. Do not get caught up in his web of deception like this poor Craigslister did. File this one under Monkey Business. (The wrong kind, where you don’t actually get a monkey out of the deal.)
This freak says he's giving away a free monkey. I was interested and he asked me for a picture of myself saying its procedure which seemed false and he was just being a weirdo and I asked if he really had a monkey he said no. I asked then y did u have me send u a pic he said he did no such thing. So this is a scam!!! So Be aware!!! this psycho has my number now but I'm not worried!! Just know its not real!!!

By Laura Marrich [ Tue Sep 7 2010 12:47 PM ]
Stash your valuables in an out-of-date medical book with graphic pictures of the birthing process. It’ll work like a charm ... unless you get robbed by a gang of pregnant women.

It has a compartment inside to hide things.Inside dimensions of book are 4.25 x 7.5 inches and is 5/8 inch deep.Please note there are graphic photos of a child being born at the first of the book. Book looks great with or without the paper cover.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Antique Meiji Foot Warmer/Incenser ($2,500)
By Laura Marrich [ Mon Aug 23 2010 4:54 PM ]
For the Asian antiques collector with cold, stinky feet and money to burn, may we suggest this gold-accented combination incense burner / foot warmer from Japan’s Meiji era?
More than 100 years old, this rare and unique bronze, silver, and gold foot warmer was made after the defeat of the Shogunate, during the reign of Japan’s Emperor, (Mutsuhito) Meiji (1868 - 1912). Deeply patina’d bronze brazier with a 950 silver dragon motif lid accented by karat gold and black enamel eyes. Most certainly made for someone of the ruling class. Exactly 8”x 8”x 8”. Asking $2,500.00.
Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: The Estate of Ron Big Bear Church ($150,000)
By Laura Marrich [ Fri Aug 20 2010 2:37 PM ]
Could this be some kind of new internet scam? But with deceased Native American art dealers instead of dead Nigerian land owners?
I have been left, via my deceased brother's estate, the remains of what might be one of the largest variety and number of Native American Art and Crafts, costing my brother $150,000-$200,000 . These represent over 50 yrs of collecting from all over the country and were part of his Texas gallery as well as his personal collection.The Clock is Ticking - due to my own poor health and having no heirs, I will sacrifice all, or any portion, of this collection for any offer that makes sense at all. All pieces are shown with prices already marked down to 20-50% of their gallery price/value.Quick, hop on a plane, fly to Austin, and make me an offer. I will consider any cash offer, made in person, for any and all pieces. Because of my disability and people wasting my time, I no longer pack, weigh, and/or ship items. Everything from this point on will be sold in person for cash.
