Free: couch (south of Ankeny) Expired 164d - tanish color couch constructed so back and arm rests feel big and fluffy seat cushions are same color with solid piece foam inside 85” width, 34” height, 38” depth there are a couple spots where fabric “came away” from edge. Not tears per se. One is on front corner (2nd picture) but gets covered by the cushion so is unseen. The other is the back right corner (3rd picture). We would see it because the couch was in the middle of the room but if you have it up against a wall, you probably won’t see it. The back left corner has some dark marks from when the couch had sat up against a wall (4th picture). If you are going to put it up against a wall, you won’t notice it. The couch was recently steam cleaned but the staining in left arm rest is still there. See comparisons pictures of right and left arms. It’s a microfiber so seemed to capture dirt easily and stains from liquids. Picture not shown of the cushions but they are included and holding the shape very well. The springs are not broken but you do feel like you sink way down on the right side. We had put a piece of plywood under the cushions to help “even it out”. Was purchased from Homemakers around 2008/09. Overall it’s in great shape and still has lots of use left. You must be able to come pick up, load and haul away on your own.
Free: open bag dog food (south of Ankeny) Expired 178d - Blue Buffalo adult formula chicken and brown rice 6lb bag which is about 1/2 full. We had to switch to a prescription brand so the rest didn’t get used. It’s a dry food to begin with but as happens once a bag is opened, it looses moisture so the kibbles have shrunk. including a $4 coupon for any Blue brand coupon expires March 31st

Free: office chair (south of Ankeny) Gifted 1y - Have an office chair to gift but please note the covering on the seat is ripped as can be seen in the picture. It rolls nicely and the lever to lift and raise the seat does work. If someone has the ability to recover it, it would be a great chair. Comes from smoke free home. Must be able to pick up.
Free: wallpaper border (south of Ankeny) Expired 1y - 3 rolls 5 yards each. 1 package never opened. Other 2 rolls were not in package when we purchased but were taped. Picture with pink arrows to point out tape residue. These were folded instead of rolled even when we bought them. I noticed some creases from the folding when I unrolled it to take a picture. They should probably smooth out once hung. Let me know if you need a closeup picture though. We bought these in 2007 intending to put up in the kids’ playroom but never did. Package indicates these are pre-pasted. But they are old so you may want to be prepared to use wallpaper paste to adhere.
Free: weathered wooden flag pole (south of Ankeny) Expired 1y - 5 foot wooden garden/house flag pole. Is probably considered 1 inch diameter but when I actually measured, it’s about 7/8”. It is weathered quite a bit. The worst weathering is the top couple inches and finial at the top end (see picture). The finial used to be rounded but a chunk broke off at some point so it has a straight side now (see picture). The pole is actually not completely straight. The picture shows the pole on the floor next to a straight line. You can see it’s not completely straight anymore which I expect is from the outside elements. It does function and is usable.
Request: large heavy cardboard (south of Ankeny) Received 1y - Looking for larger pieces of heavy corrugated cardboard. This needs to be cardboard with the wavy type ridges in the middle layer. Boxes from appliances like refrigerators and TVs and even moving boxes like those from Home Depot are great. Will pick up. TIA
