Offer: Small carved wooden box (Cleveland Park near Zoo) Gifted - A small, decorative wooden box for jewelry, coins, or other valuables. You open it by sliding out the bottom (as shown). That might make it inconvenient if you need to open it daily, but could be perfect for storing things that you use less often. Or, a "treasures" box for a child. Size is approximately 5" long x 3" wide x 2" high. It's a warm medium brown, photos make it look a bit darker. DISCLOSURE: This held my dear cat's ashes; he was euthanized last week. But don't be concerned, his remains were inside a plastic baggie which was inside a blue fabric drawstring pouch which was inside this box. So there was no contact between box and contents.

Offer: Old Navy cropped leggings, grey, LG (Cleveland Park near Zoo) - Stretchy leggings from Old Navy, in a light grey. Seem to be these: . Size LG. I’m 5’0’ and they were full-length on me, cropped for most women of average height. Worn once and laundered. I decided I prefer a darker grey color. Easy pickup in Cleveland Park near Zoo.

Offer: Braided dark-brown leather belt (Cleveland Park near Zoo) Gifted - Classic, braided dark-brown leather belt. 37” long from buckle to tip. Minor wear in the leather where the belt prong pokes through, which is expected (and adds a nice patina). From either Lands End or L.L. Bean, I forget. Unisex (but wouldn't fit most grown men).

Offer: "Satin" padded hangers, small size (Cleveland Park near Zoo) Gifted - Eight “satin”-covered padded hangers, ivory, in excellent condition. These are 12” wide, which is narrower than standard. See . I’m not a child, but these fit in a shallow closet that’s very common in older DC buildings. (Adult-sized satin hangers are 15” wide.)

Offer: Light grey leggings, Old Navy, LG (Cleveland Park near Zoo) Withdrawn - Stretchy leggings from Old Navy, in a light grey. Seem to be these: .

Offer: Classic black gored skirt sz. 10-12 (Cleveland Park near Zoo) - Classic, black gored skirt, suitable for all occasions from casual to work to dressy. Size is adult women's 10 petite (but it’s cut generously; I would normally wear a 12 and it fits fine). Length from waist to hem is 25”. This is a gored skirt, so it hangs straight when worn, but the flare means it has plenty of room over the hips and as a result it’s a very flattering look for women who can’t wear “pencil skirts.” See photos; the second one is meant to illustrate the generous cut. Label is faded, but fabric content seems to be 62% polyester, 43% rayon, 4% spandex. Yeah, I know that doesn’t add to 100%. Machine washable, hang to dry. (But I’ve tumble-dried it with no problem.) Clean, from nonsmoking home. I’ll do my best to remove the inevitable cat hair. Easy pickup in Cleveland Park near Zoo.
