Help me with a catchy name for our charity rummage/craft sale

I'm organizing a benefit sale for Spay and Neuter Syracuse (SANS), a low cost non-profit spay neuter clinic. It will be held in donated space in a local mall, for one day. Probably Sept 10, though we are trying to get a later date. We are planning on selling nicer newer rummage sale type stuff - books, gift items, crafts. We need a fun name that will help people understand what it is. I had thought about Flea Market for Cats and Dogs but that isn't quite it. Can you help?

What do I need to know about selling my laptop to a guy in Poland?

I just sold my laptop on eBay... my first eBay sale. The buyer was in Poland. I've never shipped anything internationally. Looks like I can ship the package for about $40. It also looks like this sale might require someone to pay a Value Added Tax or import tax of some kind. What do I need to know about how this works? Do I pay or does he? Anything I should consider in the course of this sale?

Selling an underwater house?

Previously I was considering bankruptcy, but now I'm considering selling my house. My fiancee has left, I have $50k in CC debt, student loans, and a mortgage that is under water by $15-25K. Renting it out will only cover 2/3 of the mortgage/taxes/ins., and nowhere to live. I'm thinking about selling it, but what happens if I sell for less than I owe? Also, I'd be responsible for the realtor's fee (4-6%= appx. $20-25K). Add those together, and it's 30k to 50k to SELL my house and get out from under the mortgage. What happens to the balance that I would owe? Thanks!
