While I prepare for my impending move and make a list of things I'll need for my new pad, I surf various craigslist sites and note that while furniture for sale in Sacramento or San Francisco are listed with average, descriptive titles such as "Glass Top Coffee Table," or "Moving sale, all items must go," furniture in Los Angeles is sold under the headings "divorce sale" or "from the ashes of a dying relationship . . . cheap furniture!"
Maybe it's an industry thing.
