Hi, everyone. I'm interested in selling all of my belongings--two beds, nice chairs, a dresser, a dinner table set, and high chairs--due to an exciting cross-world move. Though I'm currently based in Utah, the bulk of my furniture is disassembled in a storage unit back in Ohio, and I'm expected to leave the US in August 2016. Any tips on what sites to sell things on beyond the typical Craigslist or cosignment shops? I don't anticipate returning stateside anytime soon. Thanks much.
There is this extremely fine painting of Hotei by Utagawa Kuniyoshi on the wikipedia page for Hotei and I would like to buy a poster of it to place on my wall. Unfortunately I couldn't find any place online that sell it. Any help? [more inside]
Mr Bellastella & I are going to visit Vieques this fall. We had a lovely experience in Culebra two years ago, stayed at a small guesthouse and loved it! Vieques looks like a place we will really enjoy, and we like the idea of a room or casita, or guesthouse. We're looking at Esperanza, but that's not written in ink yet. [more inside]

For my birthday, my boyfriend arranged for me to take two weeks off work to travel to the place in the world I have most wanted to visit for as long as I can remember. Hurrah! But it turns out that right now is a terrible time to go there (political upheaval, violence, etc.). Sadness. Can you help us figure out where we should go instead? [more inside]

Obama in Jakarta: Does anyone know where and what time Obama will address the public in Jakarta? I heard through the grapevine that he might deliver a speech at the Universitas Indonesia. But my searches on the internet have only turned up information about a speech at the Istiqlal Mosque. Still, there is no information about date or time. I would like to see him, if I can. Thanks.

I'm an Aussie who is going to be spending a month in northern Georgia, in the area of Cedartown/Tallapoosa visiting his girlfriend's mother and boyfriend for Christmas. I'm looking for cheap and interesting things to see and do in the area -the weirder the better. I'm not adverse to travelling into Atlanta. Any advice you could give would be much appreciated!
Bookmending tape. I'm looking for brands/recommendations for 1/2" - 1" wide bookmending tape, to fix broken hinges, and/or cracked spines from the inside, and with adhesive that will not damage the paper. Nothing super-fancy, and bonus points for something I could maybe find in local stores! Thanks!
