Free: Ladies Vest - never worn - size 18 (Elmhurst: Rt. 83 & North Ave.) - 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.

Free: Dishwasher (Southeast Elmhurst) Expired - White - used - good condition. Kirkland by Whirlpool. Must pick up this weekend in south Elmhurst near Visitation Church. Standard size 24" width. Free: Refrigerator/Freezer (Elmhurst: Rt. 83 & North Ave.) Expired - 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.
