Offer: Beige Loveseat (Courthouse / Colonial Village) Withdrawn 53d - Used beige loveseat, 58"×34"×34". Not in the best condition, some stains, but sturdy. It comes with a washable blue loveseat cover that helps hide its wear. It's lighter than it looks. Ideally, you would bring a friend to help you carry it out, but I can help if you need. I live up one flight of stairs. Provenance: an old roommate the last place I lived found it for free. It mostly took up space and no one really used it. I took it to my current apartment because I had no real furniture of my own. It has served me well while I have been saving and waiting for a new sofa to arrive — I think it's in the condition where it could do the same for someone else.
Offer: Dark Green Butter Dish (Courthouse / Colonial Village) Gifted 72d - Dark green Dowan brand butter dish, never used. Sturdy ceramic with a laminated wooden lid with rubber seal.
Offer: Washington Wizards Cap (Waverly Hills / Ballston) Gifted 136d - Lightly used Mitchell & Ness Washington Wizards snap back cap with old logo
Offer: Red Folding Lounge Chair (Courthouse / Colonial Village) Gifted 136d - The finest in mid-aughties college dorm chic. You should probably just buy something new from Target (where this came from), but it's still functional (seemingly indestructible), and I can't bear to throw it away. Maybe it will strike someone's fancy. Great if you just moved or move a lot (very light and easy to move) and just need a chair to relax in until you can get something more dignified.
Offer: Sligh–Lowry Bookcase with Drawer (Courthouse / Colonial Village) Gifted 136d - Well-used but sturdy adjustable three-shelf bookcase with drawer manufactured in Holland, Michigan by Sligh–Lowry. 42"×36"×12". Significant scratching, some fading, some stains, but can be restored.
Offer: Craft Bloody Mary Mix (32 oz.) (Courthouse / Colonial Village) Gifted 213d - 32 oz. bottle of Texas Beach bloody mary mix. Received as part of a pandemic shipment from James River Distillery last year. Still good until January 2022. Product of Virginia.
Offer: Leftover Halloween Candy (Courthouse / Colonial Village) Gifted 314d - My friend foisted these on me and bet me no one would take a repackaged bag of undesirable candy (Hershey's, Almond Joy) off a rando on Freecycle. Prove her wrong!
Offer: Black Ikea Kallax Shelves (Waverly Hills / Ballston) Gifted 323d - Worn but sturdy shelving unit, works well vertical or horizontal. Finish is flaking or blistered in places, scratches throughout, but sturdy. 59x39x16"
Offer: Full-size bed frame and box spring (Waverly Hills / Ballston) Expired 323d - Full-size basic metal bedframe with box spring. Both are well used but sturdy. If you need it, you can have the mattress too. At least 10 years old, but clean, and better than the floor.
Offer: Vintage Mid-century Dresser (Waverly Hills / Ballston) Gifted 324d - I'll be honest, this dresser is pretty run-down. There is some moderate mold damage to the plywood backing where it sat against a vent and the surface needs to be refinished, but if you are handy and into rescuing furniture, I think you could restore it to some of its former glory. Basic-Witz was a popular brand in the 1960s and 1970s, and represents the classic Mid-century modern design that is very much in vogue today. Restored Basic-Witz pieces seem to have good resale value online, so it could make a pretty good gift or investment.
Offer: High-Visibility Waterproof Jacket (Waverly Hills / Ballston) Gifted 324d - Small industrial-quality high-viz jacket with DC Water logo. Might be able to peel the logo off with acetone, would make a good bad-weather cycling jacket.
