Opera, hockey game, *and* summer dress.

The bag I'm looking for must go well with the three conditions above. I think I may have found it. The size is perfect! What I need help with: Black would be my go-to, but would any other available color fit with the above three things? Nothing light-colored, of course; I want to keep the inevitable hand-grime to a minimum. Also: Would you indeed declare this bag to be the thing? I'm pretty nutty about it.

Setting prices for used household items for sale

Just that simple. Those of you who have experience with selling things on Craigslist/NextDoor, etc, how do you come up with an asking price? Algebraic formula, gut instinct, throwing darts at a bull’s eye? Any guidance you can give would be appreciated, as well as any other secrets to your Craigslist success.

Should I buy a laser?

My bright child has found “burninglaserpointer” dot com and wants to buy one. This site seems a little hinky. Does anyone know if it’s a good source? Are there other sources? Apart from that, would anyone in their right mind ever let a child use a laser with very close supervision and safety goggles? This is a two part question. Thanks for any help.
