After owning my own brick & mortar consignment boutique for 13+ years I have learned all the savvy ways to help customers sell their clothing online. For information about and services offered by Pelican Free Press sponsors, please click icons below to reach their individual web pages. ARTISTS, CRAFSTSMEN wanted to participate and market their products at a Fun, Food, Fashion and Arts Fair from 1 to 5 p.m. Who better in your absence this summer to protect prized possessions than a former Los Angeles SWAT policeman and martial arts instructor backed by a 12-foot-high metal fence, several junkyard dogs, a sturdy hurricane-proof building, a roving night watchman, plenty of lights and video cameras? Besides storage, it includes a consignment shop for everything from cars, boats to furniture, art and other tangibles. The business is in a sturdy, white, low-slung building on the perimeter of Highway 307’s southbound lane, just across the highway from the entrance to the unique seaside palapa village of Paamul. Even as Kindred and workers continue to modify the inside of the building, six clients have already deposited their cars there for inside storage and nine more reservations are in hand, leaving room for about five more cars and about six to eight golf carts. News of the new  facility so close to Puerto Aventuras and Akumal arrives just as the only indoor storage service in the Puerto Aventuras resort community, owned by Hal Harper, announced it was going out of business and its space being taken over by a dive shop.
A covered  palapa-type structure in front of the building easily seen from the highway will be used to store cars, boats or equipment offered for sale on consignment. A large yellow box truck parked on the grounds is available as part of a service to transport golf carts or other bulky consignment merchandise.
Also available are roughly 5 x 5 x 6 lockable storage cages for people who need to store their smaller personal belongings when renting their living units to others or for any general storage needs.
Kindred, who volunteered to instruct Poblado children in martial arts and anticipates resuming those classes once the business stabilizes, is bringing two unique features to storage and consignment: One gives clients the ability to view their stored items on their home computers regardless of where they are via the surveillance video cams posted inside and outside of the building. Details and prices are on the new company’s website that can now be reached by clicking on the storage company’s logo on the left hand side of this page.
Kindred, who has been living in PA with his wife and three children for several years, said prospective clients should also maintain insurance on their stored possessions since the building and contents are not insured by the company.
She spotted this magnificently colored snake, could see its direction of travel, popped her house key down for scale and snapped a shot as it slithered past.
Seeing a cross-banded, red, black and yellow snake you would be wise to think “coral snake”.
Speaking of keeping distance, numerous onlookers were excited to see two hummingbirds hatch, then grow day by day until they are now ready to fly.
The birds seemed quite vulnerable to any number of predators and the adult hummers kept watch and “dive bombed” would-be invaders.
While the world ponders an escape from the self-inflicted financial miseries of corruptive overspending and as the yawning chasm between haves and have-nots widens, perhaps the best we can say about the new “Oz” is that it reminds us of the old one and its unique and insightful allegorical context.
We may have forgotten, with all the hype Hollywood showers upon itself, that the “Wizard of Oz” was first a book written by children’s author L.
Because a fellow named Herbert Kalmus, an MIT graduate, had pioneered Technicolor and producers wanted to use it in “The Wizard of Oz” because red was more vibrant and dazzling than silver.
The subtle change masked the movie’s symbolism until 1964 when high school teacher Henry Littlefield peeled the parable from “Oz” as one might skin an onion to reveal an economic allegory of the state of the union’s monetary policy.
But it would have meant a downgraded dollar and the loss of substantial wealth to the eastern financiers. Littlefield suggested that Oz is the abbreviation of “ounce”, the commercial measure used for gold. The associations go on and on with Emerald City representing Washington, the wizard as the U.S.
There is more, but this is enough to remind us that the world’s ubiquitous fiscal debates between the haves and have nots are not something new, something never experienced before. Like the new Oz movie, history is simply reprising itself with a fresh cast of characters and a generational batch of progressive circumstances. We always enjoyed playing the golf course and now with the new manager, Jose Louis Ortega, the course is getting better by the day. See for yourself what’s showing at the local movie houses in Playa del Carmen at the links below.

I love the fact that it means no more teenagers eating up the contents of my fridge all day, every day.


My sons, one 20 and the other 8 months, don't seem to care what goes on their bodies; if they could get away with going naked, they probably would.
Back in the spring, a colleague shared a secret that has changed my life: All of his daughter's clothes come from an Uptown consignment store, the Children's Clothing Exchange. This May, I am happy to report, I became a disciple of deals and found my friend and Evans' advice to be right on point.
At first I felt overwhelmed among the thousands of pieces of clothing, toys, baby gear and accessories. I got two large bags worth of winter coats, pants, hats, swimming trunks and several fancy old-fashioned embroidered pieces that I'd seen on Magazine Street, but couldn't afford, all for under $100. Harrod says many folks are intimidated by the amount of product available and the large crowds.
Another way to approach these types of sales and stores is to get the know -- or better yet become a part -- of the staff, said Ann McKendrick of the Children's Clothing Exchange. Fellow New Orleans mom Sherri Cusco says when her children, now 11 and 13, were small, she frequented the sales and got to know some of the staff. On a tip from a north shore friend, I also checked out Once Upon A Child in Mandeville, which opened last summer but already has a loyal group of shoppers and consignors.

Why consign with a shop in Atlanta & only reach thousands when you can sell online & reach millions.
Sunrise and sunset will both be about 1 hour later on Apr 7, 2013 than the day before: There will more daylight in the evening. Saturday April 6 in the Puerto Aventuras Cultural Center featuring a night of soft jazz, soul and rhythm and Blues featuring vocalists Alejandra Milan and Claudia Trevino and a musical quartet of piano, bass, drums and guitar.. A front portion of the building itself will be a consignment area for smaller goods like furniture, art, crafts and appliances. It was a very small snake, and “not knowing its variety I wasn’t getting too close.” Good decision Ali!
When the snake’s red bands are framed with narrow, yellow bands – see Ali’s photo –the little magnificently colored snake is a real coral. The more commonly encountered and harmless Tropical Milksnake looks just like a coral snake, except that its red bands are framed with black ones.
The small nest was constructed 4.5 feet (137 centimeters) off the ground in a small flowering bush bordering a parking lot. Fortunately those of us who kept looking also kept our distance and did not deter the adult from continual care and feeding. In the book, they were silver because silver had a lot to do with the emotional bi-metallism debate of the times. The “tech” in Technicolor was derived, some speculate, as a tribute to Kalmus’ alma mater, the Massachusetts Institute of “Tech”nology.
Farmers in middle and western America were struggling financially and in a wave of populism wanted to add silver to the gold standard. Littlefield saw the yellow brick road as gold bricks and Dorothy’s silver shoes as representing the two sides of  the bi-metallism argument.
The allegory reminds us that, like life itself, the economics of nations is also a roller coaster ride of ups, downs, twists, loops and curves.
We were looking for a place that was warm, on the ocean and that had a golf course with reasonable fees. Neither the pilot nor a passenger heading for Cozumel with a briefcase were seriously injured, said the police.

I hate the laborious and expensive back-to-school shopping required to get them ready for class.
Go today, he said; you'll find everything for the baby and even stuff picky teenagers will like. I grew up poor, and I'll never forget when my mamma took me to Goodwill thinking she was somehow going to find some Sears husky blue jeans in my size.


I attended the Clothing Exchange spring sale, thinking at worst I'd be Uptown and would be able to grab a latte on my way back to the office.
19, this week, August 5-7, New Orleans native Erica Plaia Harrod brings a new event, a Rhea Lana fall consignment sale, to Metairie.
In one trip, I bought two baby gift sets, an extra swing and an entire winter wardrobe for my son for less than $80. Let the staff know you want to hear from them and if there is anything specific you're trying to purchase. There's nothing worse than finding four bags of good stuff only to learn a store doesn't take credit cards. This store is owned and operated by mother-daughter duo Cyndi Seruntine and Tracie Chaplin Grubb. Offers some higher end items mixed in with everyday play wear ranging in size from 0 to size 12, and a nice variety of baby gear is available.

Any artist, cook, tailor or other craftsperson who wants to participate is asked to call Peter at 984-128-2933 or his chef, Daniel, at 984-593-1362. Cars and golf cart batteries will be charged monthly and cars washed as needed, all included in the storage fee,” Kindred said.
This was my first thought when I viewed the picture taken by Ali Perkins during her Sunday morning walk around Puerto last weekend. Its popularity exploded when the 1939 movie erupted on the screen, but there was one subtle difference between the book and the movie that nearly scuttled the book’s allegorical musings. It would have increased the money supply, raised price levels and lifted an economic burden off the indebted shoulders of farmers and workers.
He saw the scarecrow as vulnerable farmers, the tin man as dehumanized labor and the lion as venerable orator William Jennings Bryan, the then voice of populism.
No matter how well or badly we survive the roller coaster adventure, we all have to get off at the end of the ride, yes?
Much like the Clothing Exchange, Rhea Lana purchases high-quality baby- to teen-size clothing and baby toys and gear from parents and grandparents.
In addition to saving families money, she said she loves the lessons it teaches children about recycling and the value of a dollar. I also found the staff and fellow shoppers a great help in giving tips and tricks for scoring the best bargains. Bring everyone's sizes and preferences with you, so you don't feel overwhelmed by the amount of merchandise available.

It is being said the new federal government is stalling release of new public housing policy, which in turn has reduced capitalization of construction companies by 50 percent reflected in a downturn of new housing starts…THE SOLIDARITY CITY COUNCIL held its 5oth session Saturday in Puerto Aventuras with reported gains being made in setting aside parcels of land adjacent to federal zones as “protected” and maintained as open space.
The council also adopted regulations for the management and improvement of  5th Avenue in Playa as a first class tourist destination…DRUNKS HURLING BOTTLES from the street into a night club in Tulum last weekend injured 20 people, a few seriously with head and neck wounds.
