I possibly regret to inform you that if the sale of grunge items on Seattle's Craigslist doesn't pick up, this will be the last installment of the SCGW. Unfortunately the same items are posted each week, lately the only new items appear to be music instruments. The highlight of this week's SCGW is a person looking for a pair of used Doc Marten boots who lives on the east side ("which, by proxy at the very least, makes me lame"). Obviously, the SCGW pick of the week.
Although the listings are stale, the trend remains up again this week (surprise!) as noted in this week's GRUNGE GRAF:
Listings after the jump, as usual: links will break as listings expire. Click Quick!
