Offer: Shower curtain rod (Mansfield) 55d - Standard white shower curtain rod. Seems to work fine. Don't know why it was in the garage. Porch pick up. Okay, c'mon, folks. THREE people claimed they "needed this," then ghosted. Please don't respond unless you actually plan to pick the item up. I can understand a delay due to life happening, but claiming you need something, then ghosting the person offering it and wasting their time is not cool. (MF 6/14 AF 6/15 CBF 6/26 MF. FWF 7/1. GPF 7/1. AF/FWF 7/15. MF/AF 7/22. AF/FWF 8/20. MF/CBF 8/31.) Offer: shower caddy (Mansfield) 55d - Brown, rubber/plastic covered metal small shower caddy, the kind that hangs over the showerhead. The shelf part is about 10 inches wide. Please do not respond if you are not going to follow through... very tired of people "needing" things, then ghosting. (MF/GPF 8/21. CBF/AF 8/31,)
Offer: five children's books on cassette (Mansfield) Expired 96d - Just what it says. Haven't listened in ages, but believe they work fine. (MF 7/22. GPF 7/22.) Offer: children's audio books & workbooks (Mansfield) Gifted 102d - About a dozen children's audio books, some on cassette and some on CD plus about the same amount of workbooks/teacher's books. Appropriate for elementary school ages. Please let me know when you can collect items. Porch pick up. (MF/GPF 7/15) Offer: wedding veil (Mansfield) Gifted 104d - Quite old, very simple, beaded circlet with tulle train of about 4-5 feet (MF 6/26. AF 7/1. GPF 7/1. CBF 7/9. FWF 7/9. MF/AF 7/21.)
Offer: wooden curio shelf (Mansfield) Gifted 108d - About 2' x 1.5' Second picture has it sitting on a standard welcome mat to give a better visual of the size. It's basically inexpensive wood with contact paper. It was left outside to be collected, but wasn't picked up, so got a bit wet and dusty. The contact paper is coming off. I personally would just finish removing it and put on whatever color is desired or just paint it, but don't need another project. It has two hanging hooks on the backside. Please let me know when you could collect if interested. Probably going in the Monday trash if no takers. (MF 7/9. GPF 7/9.)
Offer: wedding veil (Mansfield) Gifted 121d - Quite old, very simple, beaded circlet with tulle train of about 4-5 feet (MF 6/26)
Offer: newspapers (Mansfield) Expired 189d - I have a box of newspapers I am about to donate to the animal shelter, but thought I would ask if anyone is in need of them right now as I've seen posts asking for them before. I plan on going over later this week, so if you need them, please respond ASAP with estimate of when you could collect them. Thanks. Offer: two large stuffed animals (Mansfield) Gifted 205d - Gorilla and bear. Could use cleaning since they have been sitting for some time. Definitely will have cat hair/dander, but good condition otherwise. That's a regular sized door they're sitting against, so not exactly small, maybe two feet "tall" or more.
Offer: small bird bath: needs repair (Mansfield) Gifted 209d - Short bird bath, only a couple feet high. Bath part broke loose from stand. Cherubs on stand. Pictures came out crappy for some reason. Obviously needs repair.
Offer: umbrella stroller (Mansfield) Gifted 213d - Standard umbrella stroller. Not ours. Came with some other stuff. Have not used it as don't currently have a baby, but seems to work okay. Please let me know when you would be able to collect in Mansfield. We can leave it out for your convenience. Please do not say you're interested, then not respond for days. Thanks
Offer: set of five ceiling fan blades (Mansfield) Expired 213d - Five standard size blades for a five-blade ceiling fan. No hardware. Decent condition. One side looks like dark oak and the other side more a mahogany color. The oak colored side is in better condition, but they are usable either way. Or as a fun art project. Porch pickup only. Please don't say you want them then not respond for days. Please do say when you could collect them. We can put them out for your convenience.
Offer: Printer ink (Mansfield) Gifted 227d - Box is open, but ink is sealed. No longer have the printer. No idea why we have the ink. Second photo tells you which printers this ink fits. If you are interested, please message saying when you would be able to pick up from porch in Mansfield (near Country Club & Walnut Creek).

Second photo tells you which printers this ink fits. If you are interested, please message saying when you would be able to pick up from porch in Mansfield (near Country Club & Walnut Creek).
Request: manual wheelchair (Mansfield) Received 263d - One of the volunteers at our agency (local student clothing bank) has taken in an elderly relative who needs a wheelchair. We can arrange to have someone pick it up from anywhere that's not literally hours away from Mansfield/Arlington. A really nice woman who devotes so much time to helping us that I wanted to see if we could help her family out. Like so many, they are struggling a bit now. Request: Texas Monthly etc for classrooms (Mansfield) Expired 290d - Posting for a public high school teacher: if anyone has Texas Monthly magazines or any other magazines or books on Texas history, geography, etc, she could use them for her Texas history courses. Even more general US that might include topics that affect all states. We have a few items for her, but just thought I'd ask since most people just recycle the magazines. (If you have other magazines or books, send a message and I can ask about those. Usually some teacher can use them. Just gave a box of children's books and puzzles to an elementary school teacher.) I can do porch pickup, but if you are not in Mansfield, might not be able to do so within 24 hours, just FYI. Thanks so much in advance for anyone who can help out the teacher. Offer: disposable cutlery (Mansfield) Gifted 294d - PLEASE. If you are contacting to express interest, please give an idea of when you could collect (from near the Walnut Creek/Country Club intersection). It's okay if not immediately and I can set it out any day/time that someone can pick it up, I've just been having people express interest, then ghosting. I don't want to hold it for someone who isn't going to respond again as that's unfair to others. Thanks for understanding. We have several gallon zip loc bags of disposable cutlery, mostly from getting take out at restaurants and not remembering to tell them we didn't need it. Does anyone know of a place that serves meals or something like that who could use it? Offer: fitness stepper (Mansfield: 287 & Walnut Creek) Gifted 308d - Clearing garage. As is (obviously). Stepping part works; did not test the little monitor. PLEASE NOTE: in second picture, the small black foot on the right? You can clearly see that the one on the left is missing. You can order a replacement or figure some other way to level it. Right now it rocks slightly when using due to that and probably shouldn't be used until that's fixed. Personally I would just glue another piece of rubber to the bottom. Some notes: no, we are not fixing it in order to give it away. Please do not say you want it, then not respond for days. If you do, it will go to the next person. Please do say when you would be able to pick up it if you want it (porch pickup from Mansfield, near the 287 Walnut Creek exit).

Does anyone know of a place that serves meals or something like that who could use it? Request: encyclopedia: partial or full set (Mansfield) Expired 330d - Basically any encyclopedias for high school arts projects. Will be going to a public high arts teacher(s) as materials for the students. Offer: holly branches (Mansfield) Gifted 332d - Apparently some like these evil, pokey things for making xmas wreaths? Beyond me, but I'm cutting ours back in the next day or so (depending upon weather). I was going to bin them, but if someone wants to pick them up instead, I can put them to the side. Let me know Offer: Twin hospital bed -- NO mattress (southlake) Gifted 334d - Need to get rid of a hospital bed. In excellent condition, twin size, but we had to dispose of the mattress due to stains. Only a couple years old and used by a smaller person and only transported from facility into storage, so not much wear. REPEAT: THERE IS NO MATTRESS. Everything else is fine. The bed would have to be picked up in SOUTHLAKE. You will have to arrange pickup, including loading, but it is free and was $1000 - $2000 new (don't know exactly, last one was $2000). It would fit into a pickup bed, but the frame is pretty heavy so you'd need help to load it. Please contact with any questions. Request: children's books teachers (Mansfield) Expired 336d - Hi all! I'm sure most are aware that almost everything in our public school classrooms is provided by the teachers, often out of their own pockets. One thing many would like to have more of in their classrooms is BOOKS! If you have any gently used (of course new is fine!) books, especially children's fiction and non-fiction books you no longer need and would like them to have an appreciative home where they can be used by so many of our precious children, please contact me. We are working as a community to help our teachers improve their classroom resources. Magazines of topical interests (National Geographics, Scientific Americans, Smithsonian, etc) are also useful. Thanks so much to anyone able to help our teachers out. Offer: many pairs of shoulder pads (Mansfield) Expired 352d - I found a bag full of shoulder pads removed from various garments. I don't know if someone could use them for making costumes? Like for cosplay, perhaps. Offer: toothbrush travel case (Mansfield) Expired 1y - Travel case for Oral B electric toothbrush. The toothbrush has passed the Pearly Gates, so just thought I'd check to see if anyone needed a case for theirs.
Offer: white "cubby" shelf (Mansfield) Gifted 1y - about 5 feet wide and 3 feet tall Good condition, just dusty from sitting. White painted wood, not too heavy: easily moved by one not-exactly-buff person PLEASE... if interested, let me know when you can pick it up in Mansfield, near Walnut Creek & 287. Trying to clear out the garage NOW. Thanks.
Offer: bead holders (Mansfield) Expired 1y - Three round bead holders. Probably originally held beads I purchased, but I don't use them. About 6" in diameter. Porch pickup in Mansfield near Country Club & Walnut Creek. Need to get rid of ASAP, but can be left out to pickup at your convenience. Please say when you could collect them if you're interested. Thanks much
Offer: child's wooden table & two chairs (Mansfield) Gifted 1y - What you see: wood plank table and chairs Been outside a good bit so the wood has separated, loosening the screws. It would need some gluing and screwing, maybe bracing. Just a project that I no longer want to do. Table is about 2'x4' for idea of size. Second chair looks the same but in better condition (we do have the piece that broke off). Edited to add: WE REALLY NEED THIS PICKED UP ASAP OR ELSE IT WILL HAVE TO GO WITH THE NEXT TRASH PICKUP. If interested, please let me know when you can collect it. Porch pickup in Mansfield.
Offer: Physics Today magazines (Mansfield) Expired 1y - Several dozen Physics Today magazines. Like Scientific American but for physics and related topics. Good for advanced high school or college students interested in physics. Possibly good for a high school science classroom. I included a typical table of contents. Offer: briefcase (Mansfield) Gifted 1y - Please look at photos. It's a very nice briefcase, metal fittings, combination lock (set to open -- you can reset it), great interior pockets -- BUT, there is exterior damage. Easiest to just look -- basically leather or leatherish "veneer" has partially come off on one end.
