Request: Scissors with patterned blade (Elmonica) - If you have a pair of scissors with a scalloped edge (one that cuts in curves instead of in a straight line), please throw them my way. Sharp ones are preferred as I intend to use them for fabric. If now is not the time to be crafty, then I do not know when will be! Offer: Pots, pan, and steamer (Elmonica) - A handful of non-stick cooking pots. To be honest I don’t recommend you cook your food in non-stick, but it could come handy for craft or other project. Also a steamer I don’t have use for.

Looking for small plants/off shoots of gooseberry, lingonberry, bearberry, currant, juneberry, etc... thanks fellow gardeners! 💚 Offer: Shells (Elmonica) - Manilla clam shells, fairly clean.

Let me know if you can spare some or have seen it growing anywhere. Thanks!
