Offer: Portable Dishwasher (By Ypsi Water Tower) - This must be picked up today or before 8 am tomorrow (Wed 3/31) when 1800 Got Junk will clear the apartment. GE Nautilius Portable dishwasher. Works well. Leaks small amount at bottom. It’s up a steep flight of stairs and will take 2 strong people to get it downstairs. I do not recommend it for people with mold allergies or chemical sensitivities. If you are seriously interested, I will tell you why, but I don’t want to put that personal business out for all. If interested, PLEASE CALL Abby at 734-262-2133. I am cleaning & emptying the apartment & won’t be checking texts or emails. Thanks for looking! It is nice & should go to a good home. Please note, at 8 am tomorrow, it’s going in a dump truck.

Offer: Firewood (SE Ann Arbor) Expired - A few big chunks that need to be split and mostly longer thinner pieces that need to be broken up. Take as much or as little as you’d like. This is at a friend’s house, not mine & I’d like to schedule a time when I can be there to help you so she doesn’t have to deal with it. Near Stone School and Ellsworth. Let me know when is good for you & I can probably make it work. This weekend (Jan 30 & 31) is not good, but next weekend & week I am very flexible. Thanks much for looking. Abby

Request: Deli Containers & Peanut ButterJars (Ecorse & Maus, Ypsi) Expired - Planning to do some batch cooking and freeze it. I’m looking for some pint deli containers, the thicker more opaque ones, not the clear very thin ones and also some larger, plastic jars, like the family size size of peanut butter. Wide mouth is better, so peanut butter jars are better than mayonnaise. I’d also take a few giant ones, like GFS jars for 5 lbs of peanut butter, if anyone has those. Would like about 10 of each. Thank you so much for looking. Request: Back-up Bed for Small Dog (Ecorse & Maus, Ypsi) Expired - Totally a want, not a need. My housemate’s small dog has a good bed in their room, and he might enjoy having a bed in common space too. If anyone’s small dog or large cat got a new bed from Santa, maybe we could have the old one? So long as it’s flea and pee-smell free, well-loved is fine. Thanks much for looking, Abby Offer: 3’ Artificial Christmas Tree (Ecorse & Maus, Ypsi) Expired - If anyone still needs a Christmas tree, I have a 3’ artificial one. No lights. Easy porch pick up on Ecorse just off Maus in Ypsi. Happy holidays! Abby

Request: M or L X-Mas Scrub Top (Ecorse & Maus, Ypsi) Expired - Does anyone have an M or L Christmas scrub top they would be willing to share? I can give it back after Christmas if you’d like. Large is better and I can wear a medium if it’s cut loose. I am working Christmas Day and it’s more fun in a Christmas top. I ordered a cute used one on eBay, but due to the holidays and the Apocalypse it seems to be stranded In Wisconsin and I don’t know if it will arrive in time. I refuse, refuse, to pay $30 at the scrub store for 1 top especially when they feel like shower curtains. Thank you so much for looking and best wishes for a very Merry Christmas. Abby PS if you are reading this coz you wear scrubs, the Ann Arbor Salvation Army Thrift store has a great scrub selection and cheap. I hope to check there today. Offer: Armchair Needs Good Home (Ecorse & Maus, Ypsi) Expired - You can choose which one. I like them both, but don’t have enough room. Each one has an ottoman that sort of matches it that you could have as well. You can choose one without testing and I will leave it on the porch or you can put on a mask and come in and sit in both and I will wear a mask too. Thanks for looking and happy e-cycling! Abby

Offer: Practically New Recliner (SE Ann Arbor) Gifted - I’m in Glencoe Hills by Hogback and Washtenaw. Practically new chocolate brown recliner. My neighbor bought this new and said he’s sat in it about 5 times. He thinks the back has more bounce in it than it should. It felt ok to me. It definitely is safe, not going to tip you over backwards. Maybe something is loose, maybe a springier suspension than he likes. He put it in the laundry room of our building, where someone else may take it or maintenance might throw it out, so the sooner you can pick it up the better. I am around tomorrow (Wed) late afternoon and evening till 9:30 pm. Thanks and happy e-cycling. Abby
