Garage Sale

Updated August 20, 2014

I am trying to eliminate the tonnage that accumulated in my lab, house, and boat over the years… not just my own stuff, but the remnants of the old family home that I shut down in 2005. For the past decade, I’ve been eBaying at the Moon and Amazoning Out (those links open my respective store pages in a new tab). I’ve also been selling a steady trickle of items via a few Facebook groups here in the San Juan Islands, but there is still a long way to go.

This page, kept simple without shopping cart tools and other gadgets, is just a categorized list of items and prices. If stuff catches your eye, please drop me a line with your list and I’ll give you the shipping weight/cost… and we can take care of it with Paypal, Plastic, or the old-fashioned check-by-mail. I will delete items from here as they find new homes.

book-inside-iranThis is a 2002 hardcover book with clean dust jacket, entitled Inside Iran: Women’s Lives. 250 pages, in excellent condition. Sayeth the blurb: “The image of Iranian women is still one of anonymous ranks of revolutionary marchers, clad in black. But underneath their black chadors or drab raincoats, they not only wear jeans, T-shirts and Lycra leggings, but they also work outside the home, drive, play sports and even become politicians. While many women haven’t regained the Western-style freedom they lost in the revolution of 1979, others have won rights they never had before. Practically every girl has access to primary education now, and even remote villages have clean drinking water, a paved road and a school. Yet Islamic law continues to impose many inequities and constraints. In cash terms, for example, a woman’s life is worth half that of a man’s, and in the courtroom, two women have to give evidence to equal one man’s testimony. This is a fascinating story of struggle and change, vividly documenting what it means to be a woman in Iran.”  $5.00
