Free: Electric kettle (Wallingford) Gifted - Oster electric kettle, still in box. Works fine, but we don't need two of them. Please let me know when you can pick things up, and please don't respond if you probably can't get around to picking up. I've had a remarkable number of no-shows. I understand the hopeful impulse, but it leads to me leaving stuff on my porch through bad weather, which is bad for the items and makes them less desirable for the person who genuinely can show up to get them. I will wait patiently for a few days if you communicate in a timely manner. Otherwise, I will move on if you don't show when you say you will. Thanks.

Free: Tiny tool (Wallingford) Gifted - Tiny tool on keyring. Separates into small screwdriver, miniscule phillips head screwdriver, and two hex drivers so small I can't believe they have real world uses. We think this is supposed to be used for working on circuit boards, but we don't know for sure. It's awfully cute. Did I mention that it's really small?

Free: Silk screen mesh on board (Wallingford) Gifted - If I understand correctly (and I don't swear that I do) this silk mesh mounted on a board would allow you to print images 23" by 30", as long as you know how to do silk screening, which I definitely do not.
