Free stuff aka NoCostco 2013

Postby AntiM » Sat Jan 26, 2013 4:44 am

I sometimes have free shit I want to give away sooner than the UT regional or TTITD, and which I don't want to put on freecycle, or which the UT Free FB does't pick up on.

You folks can give and get on this NoCostCo too.

GROUND RULES: this is FREE stuff. Not referrals, not sales, not barter, not "at cost", not your etsy page, not raffles or contests, not kickstarter, FREE shit. You decide what you give, you decide who gets. While it is acceptable to request postage, either in monetary units or trade, keep that shit off the board, go to PM or email or smoke signals. Yes, you can ask for shit here. We'll give it to you, no doubt. You may also begin your own thread if you have lots of shit to deal with.

The management is not responsible if you make bad decisions with another eplayan. Review Safe Gifting and make responsible decisions.

Black bra for a 1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28. Used about twice and has been taking-up storage space ever since. Free to good home subject to my amusement factor, mood, and level of sobriety.

That might actually fit me Roark :shock: but I already have as many black bras as I need and I only ever wear the one with the skeleton hands on it anyway.

I hope you find a taker, though! 8)

I still have the small, light duty 4x4 box trailer. Standard 14" car wheels, lights, removable sides. The tongue can even fold for storage, but I'd rather weld it solid for whomever needs it.
no title I built it and my friend didn't need it, after all.
2" ball.

hundreds of 2x6 all heart redwood blocks, up to about a foot long
same for small blocks, in inches, some with holes drilled, some rounded corners (a friend made sets of blocks for a grandchild from them).
bags of all heart redwood shaving, and some of sawdust.
misc. glass, windows, sliding doors, etc.
an ATM machine, combination lock, safe and all intact.
misc. fencing.
mini christmas lights.

Free shirts

Postby AntiM » Sat Feb 16, 2013 7:17 am

First, a silk Hawaiian shirt which belonged to my father. Heavyweight silk, black with pineapples and postcards. XL, dry clean only.

Second, two vintage shirts, would like to send out as a pair. These will fit a slight-framed person, Larry's shoulders have simply bulked up too much to wear them, and they won't fit well over boobs!
1. 70s Western style long sleeve short, pearlized snaps, slant chestpockets, in blue~grey with muted earth tone stripes. Men's S 14 neck, slim fit. Lightweight poly-cotton. (77, 78?)
2. 80s vintage Banana Republic camp shirt, medium, cotton. Two chest pockets, creamy pale yellow with yellow/clay/teal pinstripes. This was from before the Gap bought out BR, when they had the funky "urban safari" catalogs and actually offered decent clothing. (87?)

Two white cotton skirts

Postby AntiM » Fri Apr 05, 2013 9:53 am

Two pure white, peasant/hippie/boho/gypsy tiers style skirts. Inner petticoats on both, one is poly, one is cotton. Elastic waist. Perfect for dying or painting. Size 3X, but probably can be taken in a little. I just have too many skirts, I won't get around to dying them, and I don't wear white.

I'm in Martinez-by-the-bay. Anybody need a tent? I can't even turn around without tripping over one. S.F. Bay Area only. These probably aren't worth shipping. One large, lots of smallish ones. Message me.

AntiM, You just reminded me that I have a table model ATM that I was going to alter and use this year. Oh well. Maybe next year.

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

My wife's company is downsizing and she has a ton of wide fabric trim if anyone wants. This stuff has been sitting around her warehouse since the 80's (maybe longer). Some is faded in spots, dusty, dirty, etc...

The bolts are in 36 yard put ups, but there are quite a few started bolts as well.

Style: I believe the current term for this trim style is wide gimp.
Width: 1 7/8 inch wide.
MFR: Conso (back when they manufactured in the US).
Material: I believe this is a rayon / polyester blend, however have no documentation of that.

Shipping: I am struggling financially, so if you want any of this stuff you will need to pick up the tab for shipping it. I do have a UPS account so can ship these at the lowest possible cost for you. Each 36 yard bolt weighs 4 pounds. If you have a commercial location that it can ship to (such as place of work) it will also save the UPS residential delivery surcharge. If you are near NYC you can also pick it up and look through the stuff.

Good assortment of colors available (just a few shown below). I believe there are more than 12 colors. Most are two tone or tone on tone, but some are solid colors. If interested, let me know what colors you are looking for and I will check availability.

I have a pair of footy jammies to gift!

I bought the size that fits folks 6' to 6'4". I'm 6' tall and they are way too big for me in all aspects. They'd fit perfectly if I was 6'4" and 225, with a size 12 shoe. But they're quality jammies!

They're a dark blue with different color tennis ball sized spots. They're in perfect conditions. I only wore them 3 times!

Just email me! or msg me here!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.
