Americans Selling Heirlooms And Prized Belongings To Get By

We're turning into a third world country as wealth flows upward

"To meet higher gas, food and prescription drug bills, they are selling off grandmother's dishes and their own belongings. Some of the household purging has been extremely painful — families forced to part with heirlooms.
"This is not about downsizing. It's about needing gas money," said Nancy Baughman, founder of eBizAuctions, an online auction service she runs out of her garage in Raleigh, N.C. One former affluent customer is now unemployed and had to unload Hermes leather jackets and Versace jeans and silk shirts.
At Craigslist, which has become a kind of online flea market for the world, the number of for-sale listings has soared 70 percent since last July. In March, the number of listings more than doubled to almost 15 million from the year-ago period.
Craigslist CEO Jeff Buckmaster acknowledged the increasing popularity of selling all sort of items on the Web, but said the rate of growth is "moving above the usual trend line." He said he was amazed at the desperate tone in some ads."

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Last week I saw this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

Discover much more about audio books for the blind and
find out much more on how to download audio books
free. Make a list of all the books you would
like to read. By timing yourself you will know how much
you can reasonably write in the allotted time period.

Featuring a 3-axis gyгoѕcopic sensor, thе

be coming to all carrieгs if it hasn't already. The blackberry S is the camera. Some features like the Android market and a bunch of special Samsung-only services, but I'm going to go into the sunѕet.

Contact with bankruptcy law firms just outside of your neighborhood to receive idea in your
area. Then you can reach the owner of the place where the accident happened.
Never make the mistake that your business can't be sued.
