Offer: Pair of down upholstered chairs (LaGrangeville, NY) - A matched pair of club chairs. High quality "bones", down upholstery, and exhausted polished cotton cover. Very comfortable. Each chair has a temporary homemade cover, one in teal blue and green, the other is light sage green (not shown). What I would do with the chairs: Cover each arm with cotton quilt batting. Cut off the skirt. Cover it with a purchased chair cover and enjoy extra seating through the holidays. You can, of course, reupholster them. Due to two no-shows (after moose hauling these things up and down stairs), I will ask for a specific time for you to pick up, a phone number, and assurance you have a truck or van large enough for the chairs. Pick up near Vale Farm schools, off East Noxon. Front door has only a few steps. I'll get them down to the front door for you.

Offer: Pair of down upholstered chairs (LaGrangeville, NY) Expired - This is a matched pair of currently shabby, formerly high quality, club chairs with down upholstery. I've held onto them because their "bones" are higher quality than anything I would have purchased new. Now, I'm downsizing furniture and household goods in preparation for retirement. Each chair has a temporary homemade cover, one in teal blue and green, the other is light sage green (not shown). What I would do with the chairs: Cover each arm with cotton quilt batting. Cut off the skirt. Cover it with a purchased chair cover and enjoy extra seating through the holidays. You can, of course, reupholster them.

Request: 1/4" elastic for sewing face masks (LaGrangeville, NY) Expired - Looking for sewing elastic, white or beige. I have cotton cut out for 50 masks but only elastic for 12.

Offer: Antique wooden tool chest (LaGrangeville, NY) Gifted - Wooden tool chest, circa 1920 or older 35.5" long, 19" deep, 12.5" high This was my grandfather's tool box. In 1979, my father refinished it for me. It is a black exterior with brass corners (in need of a polish). This finish is not slick or shiny or perfect as it is old wood, well used. My initials are painted in gold on the top. You can probably sand them out and finish the urethane. The interior is Chinese red lacquer (photo does not do it justice). There are two removable trays. Local pickup only. I have a bad back and cannot schlep this to UPS. I'm happy to send additional photos if you like to see finer detail.

Offer: Large dog bed (LaGrangeville, NY) Gifted - The bed I am giving away is identical to the one in the picture with two exceptions: (1) It has not been used and (2) greyhound not included. I had him in the photo to show relative size. About 35" by 28" by 5". I made this from two layers of memory foam, recycled mattress pad, and some free brown material (a synthetic of some sort). This does not contain a zipper!! (I detest sewing zippers.) So, you'll want to add your own washable cover. Would prefer to give this to a rescue group of foster dog mom, if possible. Pickup off East Noxon Road near Vale Farm schools. As I won't leave this out in the weather we need to coordinate when I'm home but that's not too difficult.

Offer: Folding wooden clothes rack (LaGrangeville, NY) Gifted - No photo necessary as we're all familiar with these. They come in very handy for drying delicate laundry or for winter clothes when you come in snow-covered. Why am I giving it away? Because I have another one and don't need two. Easy driveway pickup near Vale Farm schools off 55 and East Noxon. Offer: Smoker box for grill (LaGrangeville, NY) Gifted - This is a metal smoker box for use with a gas or charcoal grill. It's still in its original plastic wrapping though you can see there's a bit of rust on one edge. 8" x 5" x 1.5" Easy driveway pickup near Vale Farm schools (unavailable 2/6- 2/8)
