Offers  and  Requests
Offer: DVD Series: Elizabeth R, Spartacus (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - Elizabeth R is the classic, Emmy award winning series with Glenda Jackson. The much more recent Spartacus has vastly superior production values, but appears to serve only as a vehicle for bad acting and relentless, gratuitous violence and slow-motion gore. Great fun! Offer: Five DVD Movies (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - 4 DVD, one Blu-Ray. Two excellent movies: Amadeus, and Apollo 13. Dead Calm is a fun thriller, Flamingo Kid is a bit of nostalgic fluff. Layer Cake is the lone Blu-Ray, and honestly I couldn't finish it, I found it dreadful. But Daniel Craig fans might enjoy this.

Offer: Suitcase and Wheeled Tote (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - The suitcase is a small, soft-sided nylon American Tourister. Well used but still serviceable. The wheeled tote is also soft-sided. Useful if you have heavier items. Shoulder strap has a broken clasp that might be mendable by a handy person. I haven't travelled recently. The luggage has observed a strictly stay-at-home life for years, but are hoping to satisfy their wanderlust once again.

Offer: Oil Filter Wrench (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Expired - This probably dates back to the 1980s and is well-made. It is designed to adapt to different oil filter sizes. I don't know if it will adapt to very small filters.

Offer: Fabric Softener (Fleecy and Downy) (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - Both Fleecy containers are full. Downy is about half full - or half empty, if you lean toward the pessimistic side. We simply don't use fabric softener anymore.

Offer: Small Aiwa Speakers (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Expired - Pair of small Aiwa 16 ohm extension speakers in plastic housings, each about 7" wide. Can be hung on a wall. They work just fine, though if you plan to play Megadeth or your old Telarc vinyl Brahms records through them, you may find yourself disappointed.

Offer: Fireplace Starter (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - Foolproof way to get your wood fire going. I believe this is cast iron and ceramic. Pour in methyl hydrate, slide underneath the grate, light, and Bob's your uncle. Just be very careful not to spill the methyl hydrate.

Offer: 120v Fluorescent Light Ballast (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - Still in wrapper. It is probably 20 years old and the casing has some corrosion on it but I can't imagine why it wouldn't still work. Offer: Ceramic Briquettes for Gas BBQ (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - 54 pieces. In box, never used. And grilling season can be whenever you want it to be.

Offer: Headlight - Halogen Sealed Beam (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - This is a rectangular GE Halogen headlamp off an early 1980s GM X Car. Offer: Baseball / Softball Equipment (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - I've got 3 bats, 3 gloves, and 3 balls. These are "veterans". The gloves are for smaller hands and more appropriate for baseball than softball, I think. The Rawlings had a nicely formed pocket when I used it, but I switched to a larger glove for softball. There are two wooden bats and one aluminum bat. One was a nice Louisville Slugger "Bazooka" which was great but perhaps obsolete with aluminum bats. The balls are mostly hacked up but perfectly good for fun or drills. Offer: Jewel in the Crown DVD Set (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - A wonderful miniseries that we've watched many times. We bought the Blu-Ray version and no longer need this older DVD set. Offer: Old 6v Motorcycle Ignition Coil (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Expired - This was headed for the trash and thought I would take the long shot. It is a 6v ignition coil from a late 1960s Suzuki 80 motorcycle. Offer: Glass reagent bottle (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - I believe this is 1 imperial gallon. It was used for making up sterilizing solution for home brew bottles. Curious cat not included. Offer: Vermiculture composting container (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - For indoor vermiculture composting, i.e. worms doing the work. This is just the container, no worms or bedding included. Offer: 13" crt tv/vcr ac/dc (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - I inherited an old Memorex 13" CRT (tube-type) TV / VCR and haven't used it. I've made sure it can turn on and I can run an external DVD through it. I don't know how well the VCR works. No remote control. Offer: Small Round Table - Particle Board (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Expired - Simple particle board table, 20" diameter. It can be draped with fabric to make a nice looking bedside or accent table. See photo. Cat not included. Offer: 2 Suitcases (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - Two suitcases. They are clean and in good shape, just a bit dusty. - carry-on American Tourister with wheels. I don't know if this still compatible with airline regulations for carry-on size, but it's a nice little suitcase regardless - basic small/medium sized suitcase Offer: Complete Book of Chevy Vega Tuning Book (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Expired - This is a Petersen maintenance and tuning guide from 1975, aimed at the real DYI-er. No front cover, perhaps it rusted away. This book is a must for anyone who ever had a Chevrolet Vega and loved it. Come to think of it, that might be a very small market indeed. Offer: Monty Python Rutland Dirty Weekend Book (Barrhaven (Walter Baker Area)) Gifted - If you are a fan of Monty Python and especially Eric Idle, you might enjoy this pretty silly and slightly raunchy humour book from 1976.
