Offers  and  Requests
Offer: Laptop power cable end (EU prongs) (Main & King Edward area) - This is the wall to adapter portion of a laptop charger. As you can see it has a European plug on it, which means it may be handy for you if you go to Europe with your laptop sometimes. It could also be used with a EU to North America wall plug adapter. The other end with the 3 circles fits some adapters. I know my Acer and Samsung laptops fit it, but you’ll have to make sure this is the type you need for your laptop adapter.

Request: Bike Lights (Main & King Edward area) - I’d love a bright, waterproof, rechargeable bike like for the front of my bike, and also a red rechargeable light for the back. If you have either of these around and no longer need it, I’d love to give it a new home! :) Request: Yoga Block (Main & King Edward area) - I’m looking for a foam or cork yoga block to use as an ergonomic meditation seat. Thank you! :)

Request: Clear Storage Container (Main & King Edward area) Expired - I’m looking for a large clear plastic tote. Any large size works; it doesn’t have to be 70 quarts. This is for a DIY project rather than for storage, but I do need a lid with it.

Request: Lucet (Main & King Edward area) Expired - I’m looking for any kind of lucet I can use to braid a square cord. They look like this one in the photo. Perhaps you have one stored away that you don’t use?

Offer: Candle Dyes & Fragrances (Riley Park neighbourhood) Gifted - These are some of the items from my candlemaking kit that I no longer need since I’ve switched to beeswax candles (already has a pretty colour and scent). I’d recommend getting some soy wax and wicks from the Soap Dispensary or Wicks & Wax to go with these supplies.

Offer: Office Chair (Riley Park neighbourhood) Expired - This office chair has served me for several years, but it’s time to move on to something much more ergonomically suited to me. This one is very comfortable, but the base is too deep for me. As you can see it has been well used so is peeling off quite a bit, and it also has no wheels on it. I purchase it second-hand without wheels and never bothered to find some for it. I instead balanced it with chair leg pads (since it was wobbly without wheels), and that has worked well. Though as of recently it has started to wobble again so will need a few more pads to be rebalanced. Otherwise it’s a very cozy chair for the right body size!

Request: Small Dustpan / Metal Tongs (Riley Park neighbourhood) Expired - I’m making a street cleaning kit for my neighbours and I to share. I’m just missing a small dustpan with brush for cleaning up broken glass, and metal tongs for sorting the recycling from the garbage in the end (which includes recycling the cigarette butts 🙌🏻, hence why tongs would be helpful). Thanks so much for your help! Request: Bricks or Stones (Riley Park neighbourhood) Expired - Looking for some bricks, stones or something similar that can be used to border a garden to keep the soil from spilling out. Looking for something like 20-40 pieces. Thank you! Request: Garden Trowels (Kingsway & Fraser) Expired - We’ve started a collaborative community garden and are looking for some trowels to complete our tool collection. Thanks so much if you can help with this!
