Pen with integrated clip in body

I have this pen I love this pen and have managed to keep one pen for almost 10 years because It is a pen I like and value, I carry it every day. The part I love is the integrated clip as part of the body. I do like the bolt action a lot as well but would leave it if I had to. While I like the pens integrated clip and action I really don't like the lines and the "tacti cool" look it has. I know the bolt action is a part of that but the lines and knurling at the top are what I want to get away from. To my question, what other pens have that style integrated clip? [more inside]

Hearing aid for elder (what a f-ing racket) any suggestions?

My mom at 90 needs one, badly. It's impossible to communicate. As I enter this process with her it feels like I'm sliding down a slippery slope of bullshit. $1,600 to $2,000 for a unit? I read somewhere they cost $100 dollars to manufacture. Anyway: [more inside]

Sell Japanese Prints

I have to sell about a dozen Japanese prints. I have no idea of their value and want to do this quickly and with as little effort as possible. I live in the SF Bay Area and prefer dealing with this one time in person. I do not need to maximize income but do need to do basic due diligence regarding selling them for their appropriate value. Where do I go/what do I do?

Roller skates

I kept seeing an ad on Instagram about a month or two ago that was advertising really cute, colorful, retro roller skates. I meant to buy some but stopped seeing the ads and forget the name. They were like yellow/orange, blue/pink… Any ideas?

How do I hang this wall poster?

I absolutely love this Grateful Dead poster/canvas set. But in the last picture in the product description, it shows something you have to do with PVC pipe. Maybe it's used to unroll and/or stretch out the pieces? I really just can't visualize what I would need to do once I open the package and unfortunately there are no reviews to explain it. If anyone can interpret what the actual instructions would be, I will be able to decide if it is worth ordering. (I fear it might be cheaper looking than the image suggests but it's so cute I'm hoping not!)

Headphones with onboard music?

I’m looking for a pair of over-ear headphones that has a built-in MP3 player and takes a memory card. Noise cancelling is a plus. The purpose here is a portable study aid — something that allows one to listen to music without needing to connect to a phone or anything else. It needs to fit a nine year old. Some searching on Amazon tells me this probably exists, but I know nothing about brands or extra features to look for or avoid, and I’m seeking recommendations for specific products.

Portable, ergonomic chair for working in various locations needed

With the current heat wave scorching the PNW and Western Canada, I've found myself moving my WFH setup to various locations in my house and even outside to manage comfort levels. I'm pretty portable with my laptop and finding work surfaces, but the seating situation is proving problematic. I cant move my giant Aeron chair around easily, and my dining, living, bedroom and outdoor patio seating options are not sustainable for more than an hour or so of working. I need a new solution...

Grocery shopping hacks for upper-floor apartment

We are about to move into a high-rise apartment for the first time (high enough that we'll probably never use the stairs). I'm considering a collapsible wheeled cart along these lines so as to minimize back-and-forth elevator trips to the car. Those of you with experience: are there better options? or similar types of shopping-/stuff-hauling-related lifehacks we should be aware of? [more inside]

Where to buy crystals online?

I want to buy rubies, grape agate, Celestite, (and other stones if there’s a place with a selection) and am wondering a trustworthy online source. I would like the option to buy raw or human-made into shapes. Mostly raw. Bonus question: how do the different handmade shapes of crystals (angel, heart, sphere, point, etc) affect the energy? Not sure if this is the wrong place to ask this but it’s becoming much more mainstream.

How best to convert Ikea gift cards to money?

I have $400 worth of Ikea gift cards (apparently that's how Ikea does refunds, sigh). I have no use for them, I suspect none of my friends do either, and would prefer to have cash. Supposedly "resale is prohibited" and there are a lot of gift card scams out there, so I imagine a stranger would be leery about just buying them off me; I therefore hesitate to post them on Facebook Marketplace or whatever. How have you, MeFites, dealt with similar situations?
