eBay Jocks?

No, not THIS kind….

I'm looking for help - I have a LOT of rare and valuable stuff, stored carefully for decades, but my ignorance of eBay's culture has left me pretty bruised and screwed too many times. The big-city sharpies see me coming from miles away! I'd like some help navigating the path toward finally liquidating my stock.  Any coaches out there? Email me at papatony AT mac DOT com.

Visible Bodies: Transgender Narratives Retold - Our local transgender brothers and sisters have been part of this project, which is deeply admirable - Telling our truth, fully and openly is the best, dependable way to raise the level of understanding in the world. It's well-worth donating to their project.  Trans folks are FAR more likely to be bashed than anyone else, and long-term understanding and communication can make all of the difference.  A lot of the folks involved are admirable friends and associates of mine.
