Offer: old sony audiocassette recorder (UWS 94/Columbus) 11d - And by 'old' I mean 1985-ish. This recorder is clean and in good shape physically, only it makes smoke, not music. So you will want it for the parts to repair the TC-56 you already own. I opened it up, took a look around inside and declared it not worth the trouble to either repair or re-assemble, which is why it comes with a small bag of tiny screws. And also a wall-wart power supply, so you can experience the smoke for yourself. The service manual is available from a number of online sources.
Offer: Sewing stuff, quite a bit (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 22d - Probably amounting to 2-3 armloads of stuff, most of it buttons, needles, pins, doo-dads and little tools, and accessories, seemingly for the serious sew-er. And a lot of spools of thread. There's also a sewing machine, condition unknown. And some cloth. Here's the catch: The stuff has to leave the building tomorrow latest, and today would be very good. I have bags and boxes to hold the stuff; if you have a car fine, if not I may be able to help with mine. This stuff is going to landfill unless you step forward. Offer: Handsome bench (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 24d - Excellent condition; 47" wide x 33" high x 18" deep. Last pic shows cushion raised to show unmarred wooden seat
Offer: Lexmark 7300 multi-purpose printer (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 33d - Model 7300. Prints, copies, scans, faxes, but only on a PC, not a Mac, unless you're really good at this software stuff. This is not for amateurs, since it's so old (2005, but never used, I think) that you're gonna have to know your way around driver downloads, etc. to get it working. Not sure its recently-deceased owner ever learned to use it; should work fine but no guarantees. Complete w/ manual, and I can furnish any cables you need, and for that matter a ride home for you both if necessary, masks on, windows open, holding breath.
Offer: wheelchair for your dolls (94/columbus) Gifted 33d - Two identical unopened doll-size wheelchair models, that Lammily sez can be assembled in five minutes. Take a look at their website for more details. There are some other similar Lammily items not yet examined, that you can have, too.
Offer: Autobridge game (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 33d - This is only 5" x 7", and appears complete and nearly new, though I didn't count the 48 playing hands. Complete with coffee-stain.
Offer: wire closet shelving (94/columbus) Gifted 33d - The shelving comes in 18- and 36-inch pieces, and as the pic shows it will also hang clothes, or you can just ignore that function. There's also some odds and ends to join pieces together, make a 90-degree turn, etc. Haven't measured, but I'm guessing there's mebbe 50-60 feet of the stuff, most still mounted in the closets of a deceased neighbor, but easily removed by anyone with a screwdriver. And all in excellent condition. Not sure of the brand, or if it comes in other lengths; Mr. Google should know that. Come by to inspect; elevator building at 94/Columbus. I hope you'll take everything, but of course that may depend on the number of respondents. Depending on how much you take I may be able to deliver.
Offer: Small glass lamp chimneys (94/columbus) Gifted 33d - Dimensions: Bottom OD 2-3/32" Top OD 1-29/64" Diameter at widest place 2-27/32" And 6-5/8" tall There's about a dozen, wrapped in dusty newspaper from God-knows-when. They appear brand-new, if decades old. Or as we say, NOS, 'new old stock.'
Request: Ballet slippers (UWS) Received 42d - Any size, any condition—they're for a prank and will <not> be worn. So even if worn <out> I can use 'em. Thanks! Offer: Broadway original-cast LPs (94/columbus) Gifted 44d - There may be 100 or so, and lots of other LPs, mainly from the '60's and '70's. Left behind by a deceased neighbor; the couple of LPs I checked looked in good shape. You must take all the show LPs; the others, we'll talk.

Offer: Dennis Basso 'fur' throw (I think) (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 45d - This sure looks like ermine, but ain't. It's new, never unpacked, but a small tear in the bag reveals that it's not actual fur. Judging from everything else on the Basso website (where this doesn't appear) it was pretty expensive. A comforter is about the only thing it could be, warm as toast. Too bad my wife didn't like it.
Offer: Handsome wooden jewelry chest (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 45d - It's 22" wide by 11" deep by 13" tall, three drawers and the top compartment, all felt-lined. Excellent condition, except the compartments could use a bit of vacuuming/brushing. There are no stains.

Offer: Para-legal training materials (UWS 94/Columbus) Gifted 47d - Two thick loose-leaf binders, full of yummy legal stuff for the aspiring paralegal, one from 2002 and the other from 2000; not sure how much that matters. See the title-page pics. Heavy reading (11 pounds total) so I'll throw in a Fresh Direct bag. SCOTUS, here we come!

Offer: Two-quart stainless/plastic thermos (UWS) Expired 312d - This is a heavy-duty (over four pounds), basically indestructible thermos, been laying around for years but still works(!) The pic swiped from elsewhere online shows a small dent; this one has a smaller dent and a small ring of rust just above the bottom shiny part, and a few places near the top where the paint has flaked off. Scrape them off w/ steel wool, or hide with duct tape, your call. Nothing breakable about it—dentable, not breakable.

Offer: New AA batteries UWS Expired 1y - Bought but then not needed: Brand new, four-to-a-pack name-brand AA batteries, well within their expiration dates. I hope you’ll take at least three packs. Come and get ‘em! Harry Joseph 94/Columbus There are 10 kinds of people, those who read binary and those who don't. Offer: World map jigsaw puzzle UWS Expired 1y - This is a 650-piece puzzle measuring 32” x 21”. It’s a world map all right, but showing the ‘controversial’ Peters Projection, which enlarges the southern hemisphere and squishes the northern one. Peters is said to have considered the traditional projections ‘Euro-centric,’ thus his view of the world. Never put together. Actually, never even opened until now, so the descriptive paperwork and all pieces are still inside. 'A different way of looking at the globe, challenging mapmakers’ assumptions,’ it sez here. A present for that cousin in Sao Paulo? Harry Joseph 94/Columbuis There are 10 kinds of people, those who read binary and those who don't.
