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: 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.
