Free: 24 Altoids Tins (empty) (Elmhurst: Rt. 83 & North Ave.) 2d - Crafters gearing up for the holidays - 24 Altoids tins. Porch pickup. Free: Ladies Vest - never worn - size 18 (Elmhurst: Rt. 83 & North Ave.) 2d - Pretty ladies vest, fully lined. Took a sewing class and made this but did not quite finish. As you can see in the picture of the back, it needs a D-ring added so someone who sews can finish this off and have a lovely new vest. I think it is probably about a size 18 or maybe even 20.

Porch pick-up. Take all packets. Free: Masks & Rustoleum Decorative Chips (Elmhurst: Rt. 83 & North Ave.) Expired 160d - Brand-new Hanes white cotton masks. There are 8 left in the package. These are too small for my adult noggin. I would say these are better for a child. Rustoleum chips - if you are planning on epoxy painting your basement floor and would like extra chips... we only used a small amount out of this bag so it is probably 95% full. Color is Glacier Grey Blend. Reply for which specific item you would like. Porch pick-up, pet-friendly home,

Free: Refrigerator/Freezer (Elmhurst: Rt. 83 & North Ave.) Expired 1y - Not the largest (maybe 22 cubic feet?) but it works perfectly and the freezer is frost-free. Here are some considerations. 1) All the guards for the shelves in the door are gone so cannot use the door shelves unless you purchase parts. 2) It was bought from the bruised-and-dented section of the store so the front door has some paint missing. 3) It needs to be cleaned. 4) You need to carry it out of my basement.
