Free: Hops for Homebrewing (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) - We have 8 large size ziplock bags of frozen hops from last year, and the vines on our garage seem to be going great guns again this summer so - help us make room in the freezer! :) Yes, they've been in the freezer for a year, but my husband just made a batch the other day, and they're in great shape: very aromatic and... hoppy! :) He's just not brewing as often as in the past (we're gettin' old), so we'd like to gift the current inventory before the new ones get ripe. We'll probably advertise again then! :) Most probably these are Olympic hops, but can’t guarantee that. Each bag suffices for 5 gallons of beer (more or less according to taste). For the technically inclined, here are some technical points about Olympic Hops: Hops Purpose: Bittering & Aroma (well, you probably knew that! ;) Alpha Acid Composition: 10.6%-13.8% Beta Acid Composition: 3.8%-6.1%

Free: OptiPlus Anti-Fog Lens Wipes (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - These are helpful in keeping your glasses from fogging up when you're wearing a mask. I tried several products like this back when I was wearing a mask full time; this is the best of the lot (not saying they're perfect, but better than anything else I tried). It was a 100 count box, I've used a few but finally decided I'm never gonna use them all. ;) Can anyone use them?

Free: Check registers (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Expired - Could anyone use these check (or “transaction”) registers? I was digging in a drawer the other day and discovered I have 4 of them (one dating from the late 1980s, going by the calendars printed on the back cover! Lol). Completely blank and unused.

Free: The MIDI Companion (book) (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - From a little Googling, I get the impression that MIDI is still relevant, even though you don't hear much about it nowadays. Thus this offer: anyone interested in learning about MIDI? (Subtitle of the book is: "The Complete Guide to Using MIDI Synthesizers, Samplers, Sound Cards, Sequencers, Computers and More!") Paperback, former library book (the library pulled it, it's stamped "Discard," so it's all legal and ok to give away); published by Hal Leonard in 1994. You can read more about it here: =

Free: Pretty case for 2017 Kindle Fire (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - (Sigh - this is now the 3rd time I’ve had to relist this item because people who have said they wanted it haven’t shown up as promised, and are not answering messages. It’s… annoying. Hoping 3rd time lucky.) Beautiful case, loved it when I had this model of Kindle but I recently upgraded. See full description and photos on the original Amazon listing page: Note that this case will ONLY fit that particular 2017 Kindle model. It has a smudge on the inside of the front cover, but otherwise clean and in good shape: totally solid, elastic band on the back still stretchy, ready for many more years of use. SPECIAL BONUS: I would be happy to MAIL it to the next taker!! I’ll pay postage! I don’t care, I just want it to be used. I’m sure I sound like a crazy person, but I’m - well - rather passionate about not throwing good things away.

Free: Upholstery needles (lots of them!) (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Truly scary big needles! I bought them several years ago thinking they might do in a pinch for hat pins (for a play with Victorian costumes), but that didn't work out and I never got around to returning them to wherever-it-was I bought them. Can anyone possibly use these things? Or suggest an upholstery repair shop that might be interested? Thanks!

Free: 2022 Wall Calendar (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Happy New Year! This may be coals to Newcastle, but I hope someone will want this: it's a calendar I received from the University of Rochester. I kept trying to come up with a way to use it, but I can't, and it seems too nice to just put in the recycling. It is 12.5" wide by 9.5"; fully opened it will take up 19". The photos are nice and not too "UofR-ish," the spaces for writing things pretty generous. Any takers?

Free: Women's Hiking Boots size 9 1/2 (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Reposting: LL Bean women's hiking boots: grey with hot pink accents, size 9.5, medium width. Note on the size: I wear an 8.5 shoe, but these are 9.5s and they fit correctly - they aren't too long or too wide or anything. Cute and incredibly sturdy, these boots have had very little use; I was reminded WHY that was when I tried 'em again the other day: they just aren't comfortable for me. Those two pointy bits on the back of the top edges dig into my Achilles tendon, and they are Firm: no give or sponginess. They are ready to last for 900 years! :) So they should be worn (just not by me, lol!). Hope they tickle someone's fancy.

Free: 4 boxes of artist pastels (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Calling all artists or wannabe artists! :) These go back a long, long way, but I think they're still good. There are 3 boxes of oil pastels (sets of 12, 24, and 60) and 1 box of regular soft pastels (40 count, one missing).

Free: Two decorative boxes of incense (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Shades of the 60s! :) Found these two boxes of incense when cleaning out some drawers the other day. Untouched, many years old. Anyone? :)

Free: Plastic tool box (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - My inability to read dimensions properly is your gain! :) I ordered this thinking it was much smaller than it turned out to be, and instead of having me return it, Target simply refunded my money and told me to donate it. (Wow!) So it really is *brand* new. Removable tray inside, two nifty little trays on top for small things (screws, nails?). Dimensions are: 18" long, 8" high, and depth (front to back) - 8.5 at lid level, 7.5 at the bottom (i.e. it narrows slightly top-to-bottom). In addition to normal toolbox type use, I can see it being useful to a knitter, sewer, or other types of crafts (especially since it IS plastic, and maybe not up to really rough and tough tool-age.)

Free: Prestone Anti-Fog liquid (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Expired - Close to a full bottle, had this stuff for years and I just don’t seem to get around to ever treating my windshields, etc, with it. I think *it’s* perfectly good, the problem is me! ;) Before tossing it, thought it would be worth checking to see if someone else is interested (and a better car-keeper than I am :). Hope so!

Free: Cuisinart blender gaskets (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Expired - Three sealing gaskets for Cuisinart blender... argh, and here's where it breaks down: I ordered these from Amazon back in July 2019, and although I can find my order there, when I click "buy it again" to see which machines it was supposed to fit, I get "page not found." (And a cute picture of a dog, but still - not helpful.) I've searched and tried my best to ascertain *which* blenders they are compatible with, but have failed. So all I can say is that the total width is 2.5", and the width of just the rubber is 5/16". If that matches what is in your blender now, these might be useful to you! (I know this is silly - they are just little things, I could just throw 'em out... but they are perfectly good, unused... I had to try.)

Free: Primaloft Comforter (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Primaloft is a non-feather down substitute; good if you have allergies. This comforter is from "The Company Store" and is double-bed sized, thick and very, Very warm. We've had it for many years, but have always used it encased in a comforter-cover. Even so, the fabric at the ends has "tanned" over time (as indicated in photos). The one 'gotcha' about this comforter is that it is not machine-washable, only spot clean, so I don't know what to do about the discoloration. Put it in a cover and forget about it, I guess! If you are always cold, this is the comforter for you.

Free: Lots (LOTS!) of lace curtains (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Fully lined, machine wash/dry, lace curtains. 6 of them are (about) 57" wide x 82" long, and 1 huge one is approx. 208" wide by 82" long. One of the smaller sections is a little grey along the bottom edge (what the 3rd photo is trying to show; lighting isn't great in my basement); the rest are in great shape. They even have little weights in the bottom hem to make them hang nicely. All newly washed and dried; clean and disinfected, ready to make (a whole house! ;) classy! :) (Apologies that width measurements are a little "approximate": especially the gigantic one, I didn't want to remove it from the line where I finally got them all nicely hanging, so measured in place.)

Request: Have too many spider plants (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Received - A long shot, but if anyone out there is looking at their houseplant collection and thinking: "wow, this is really just too many spider plants..." - I'd be happy to take one (just one!) off your hands. It will have a very good home with me, I promise. :) Free: Singing books, most wi/ CDs (City east: Park-Monroe Ave) Gifted - Five books for singers: The Young Singer (for soprano), has CD accompaniment; Wedding Classics (for high voice), with CD; Classical Contest Solos for Tenor voice, with CD; a set of two CDs that must have come with something called The First Book of Soprano Solos... but somewhere along the way I lost the book! And finally, two older books of "old timey" songs, from the 30s and 40s. (No CDs with those!) No one is doing much if any singing in public nowadays, but you can still sing in the privacy of your home! And the books with CDs make that even easier and more fun. Hope these can find a home (or several different homes! :).
