Offer: Two wood bookshelves (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 16d - Two shelves (one pictured; other is identical) made of heavy-duty composite wood. They're heavy and sturdy but they also disassemble and reassemble without tools (as pictured), so one person can easily carry one when disassembled. We're replacing them with something less bulky. They'll hold hardback and paperbacks easily. Dimensions: 32" H 35" W 11" D.
Offer: Four Peaches record crates (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 22d - The famous Peaches Records and Tapes crates (surely somebody besides me remembers Peaches Records and Tapes here in St. Louis), ideal for LP storage. I have four of them, 13"H X 13" D X 24" W. They are stackable, as you can see from the picture, and stable when stacked. I'm now using larger metal shelving so I no longer need these.
Offer: Box of two dozen egg cartons (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 30d - All but one are hold a dozen eggs. The last one holds two dozen. Perfect for you backyard chicken enthusiasts who want to give away or sell your eggs. We already have more than we can use.

Offer: Pair of kitchen items (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 36d - Left to right: Regency Cook's Club colander (metal with enamel coating), Morenita Crusinallo cast aluminum stovetop espresso coffee maker (made in Italy). The coffee maker is designed to be heated on the stove; note that it works best on a gas stovetop. We now have an induction cooktop so we can no longer use it. If you have never used one of these before, here are instructions:
Offer: Pet ramps (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 36d - Ramps for dogs, cats, or other pets who need help getting up on your bed or wherever. They can be fastened together to make one long ramp using the attached velcro fasteners or used separately. The top is rough enough to give cat or dog claws some purchase. We originally got these for a cat who is now deceased.
Offer: Revlon Blowdryer (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 46d - Revlon 1875 Ionic blowdryer with detachable nozzle. Works fine, my wife just doesn't use a blowdryer any longer.
Offer: Blood pressure monitor (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 48d - Walgreens HD503 digital blood pressure monitor with arm cuff. It uses four AA batteries (included) and holds the last eight readings in memory. It's about ten years old, works fine. We just bought a new monitor with more bells and whistles, so we no longer need this one.
Offer: Vintage Avon bottles (Soulard, 63118) 48d - All in perfect shape, still with original contents. They were my mom's, so I'm guessing vintage late 1950s/early 1960s at least. Pictured, L-R: Song Bird Cotillion Perfume, 1.5 oz.; Timeless Ultra Cologne, 2 oz.; Topaze Powder Sachet, 1.25 oz.

Offer: Dead audio equipment (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 58d - Yamaha CR 620 receiver was working just fine until it suddenly refused to turn on. I assume there's a blown fuse somewhere but at this point I'd rather give it away than pay someone to fix it. Ditto JVC XL-FZ248 CD changer.
Offer: Apple Powerbook and 10T adapter (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 58d - Apple PowerBook 180 running System 6.0.7. Battery is dead and the clock chip seems a bit wonky but it boots when plugged in and the keyboard and trackball work. It has a floppy drive; don't know whether it works or not as I have no floppy discs. The external Asante adapter provides an RJ45 connection via the laptop's SCSI port.
Offer: Futons and frame (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 58d - Two full-size futons and a wooden frame. The frame can unfold into a bed. Note that the frame has been broken and repaired, so it's still sturdy and still works as both a couch and bed (we have used it for both in the past) but is not in perfect condition. Pictured is the futon with a green cover. The other one is plain white. We'd like to give away the frame and both futons at once.

I'd prefer to get rid of them all at once, if possible.
Offer: Foam mattress wedges (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 91d - Designed to elevate your head while sleeping; two large, one small. Unused. Long story. :-)
Offer: TDK cassettes (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 91d - Four TDK SD90 high bias type II cassette tapes, still in original shrink wrap (originally a five-pack, but apparently I used one at some point).
Offer: Six 10-oz. glasses, 4 wine glasses (Soulard, 63118) Expired 108d - Large glasses are supposedly 12 oz but will comfortably hold 10 without being filled to the brim. In perfect condition. We just decided to replace them with larger glasses. The wine glasses easily hold a 6-oz. pour. They have Italian flag colors because they used to be my mom's.
Offer: 20 Questions game (Soulard, 63118) Expired 136d - Radica electronic 20 Questions game. You think of an item and the game asks you questions to see if its electronic brain can guess your item.

Offer: Vintage home entertainment (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 137d - Just tested these today and they are in good working order. 1) Sony KDF-E42A10 42" rear-projection LCD HDTV () with remote, matching customstand and surround speakers (2 front, 2 rear, center channel); no amp, sorry, but TV includes its own decent speakers. Note that the TV weighs 61 lbs so getting down from our third floor is likely a two-person job 2) Pioneer CLD-S104 laser disc/CD player () with remote 3) Laserdiscs: 1776, Star Trek VI, Brain Donors, Batman Forever, The Lion King.
Offer: Headphones, pedometer (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 139d - 1) Goojodoq J23 wireless Bluetooth sleep headphones with USB charging cable. They work, but the earbuds are too small for my ears 2) TriSport pedometer with belt clip; never used (I have a FitBit for that!).

If you can't sleep because your brain won't stop buzzing with thoughts, it helps focus on and regulate your breathing into a sleep pattern. Requires a 9-volt battery (not included)
Offer: Two bags of assorted yarn (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 185d - Two large bags of yarn, nearly all of it in its original packaging, unused. There are also some patterns as well. My wife no longer knits so we have no use for any of this.
Offer: Two manual lawnmowers (Soulard, 63118) Gifted 188d - We replaced all the grass with a garden a long time ago and no longer need these. The one on the right is newer, but they both work and probably need to be sharpened. Take one or both.
