Offer: Vera Wang quilted eyeglass case (Cleveland Park) Gifted - Quilted floral, brown/multicolor, eyeglass case. Barely used.

Has a USB power cord, and a compartment for 3 AA batteries (caveat: batteries not included, and I have not tested it with batteries). Stay-in-Bed Light Alarm Clock for Kids.

Offer: Classic Rolodex (Cleveland Park) - Even in the smartphone era, there’s nothing like a classic Rolodex to help you keep track of your contacts, their addresses, phone and fax numbers, business cards, birthdays, etc. I retired last year and it’s time to get a smaller Rolodex. Can you use this one? It’s a rotary-style Rolodex (turn the side handles) with A-Z dividers and about 100 blank cards.

Jill black knit pants, petite M (Cleveland Park) Gifted - Plain black knit pants, from J. Jill. Size petite M. For a photo, see (where they retail for $49.99.) They were a gift from my sister. They look nice, but I prefer pants that come up to my natural waist and that have pockets. I’m also 5’0” and I think these would fit better on someone 5’2” to 5’4”. (If taller, you could wear them as Capris.) I didn’t like them enough to justify the cost of hemming. Worn twice, washed once. Easy pickup, near Zoo and Metro. Building has driveway for parking. It’s a condo so porch pickup isn’t an option, but we can meet in person or I can leave these at my lobby desk, which is always staffed. Offer: Johnson Bros. white cups & saucers (Cleveland Park) Gifted - Six tea or coffee cups and three matching saucers, in Johnson Brothers’ classic “Regency” pattern. See photo in album. Made in England of white ironstone. Microwave and dishwasher safe. Plain white, so they go with anything. I hardly ever served tea in cups (face it, we use mugs), but I guess I used the saucers for other things which is how I ended up with an unmatched number. If you want extra matching saucers, you can find them on Ebay, Etsy, Amazon, Replacements.com, etc. (Newly-made replacements seem to be manufactured in China, not England.) Easy pickup, near Zoo and Metro. Building has driveway for parking.

Offer: Vintage 1946 Bible (Cleveland Park) Gifted - 1946 “The Good Leader” Bible, King James version, with all books of the Old and New Testament from Genesis to Revelation, from John Dickson Publishing Company. Interior pages are in pristine shape, with only one pencil marking, in my grandmother’s writing, “April 17, 1947 $15.00.” That was a pretty steep price at the time and I envision my grandma buying this from a persuasive door-to-door salesman. (He would have to be persuasive, to sell an English-language Protestant bible to my German Catholic grandmother.) Exterior is intact but cover is brittle around the edges. See photos in album. This book sells for around $40 to $60 on used-book and secondhand websites, though many of them have covers that are in better condition. Yes, this was my grandmother’s, but there’s no reason to think she ever read it, and I have many other things to remind me of her. Easy pickup in Cleveland Park, near Zoo and Metro. I live in a condo, so no porch pickup, but my lobby desk is always staffed. Offer: Large ivory pleated lamp shade (Cleveland Park) Gifted - This is a pleated fabric shade, in very good condition. Dimensions are: 7" top diameter, 13" bottom diameter, 10" inch height when measured STRAIGHT UP or 11" when measured along the HYPOTENUSE (for lack of a better term). This fits a medium to tall table lamp. Standard advice is that "The shade should be twice as wide as the lamp base, and one third of the total height of the lamp." See photos in Yahoo album. This is also identical in style (though with slightly different measurements) to . This does not include the "harp," but if you're just looking for a new shade, you probably already have the harp. This has been stored in a plastic dry-cleaner bag so it's free of dust, dirt, and pet hair. I live in a condo, so I cannot leave this on a porch; but you can pick up from my lobby's desk, which is staffed 24/7. Near Metro, and easy (brief) parking in our driveway if you come by car. Offer: D. Trump Out-of-Office Countdown Calendar (Cleveland Park) Gifted - D. Trump Out of Office Countdown Calendar. New in box. It’s this product: / (where, encouragingly, it’s out of stock!).

Pickup in person or at my condo’s lobby desk (which is staffed 24/7) in Cleveland Park, near Zoo. Friendly warning: in order to give “digest” subscribers a fair chance, I do not necessarily give items to first respondent. Offer: Powercube with USB (Cleveland Park) Gifted - Powercube with USB. New in box. Designed in Netherlands, manufactured in China.
