Solid strategies can help you turn your old stuff into money

By Laura Livingston Snyder

A baby’s journey through childhood leaves a lasting impression. He also leaves behind mounds of outgrown clothes and accessories.


Artists and art lovers alike can enjoy the Syracuse New Times and Family Times Street Painting event, which takes place on Saturday, July 25, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the block of Montgomery Street near Syracuse City Hall. (The rain date is July 26.) There participants of all ages can create a masterpiece in chalk on a sidewalk square and compete for prizes. Artists should register by July 10, for the cost of $20 for adults and $10 for age 17 and younger. (Prices go up $5 after that.) Some chalk will be provided, but artists are encouraged to bring their own. Spectators can see the spectacle at no charge. For more details or a registration form, visit
