Free: Recycled redwood planter box (Near Nob Hill store) Expired 100d - This is an open-bottomed planter box (frame) made of recycled redwood fence lumber. It's 60" long, 18" wide, and stands 16" deep.
Free: Cosco folding step stool/seat (Near Nob Hill store) Expired 114d - This a variation on the classic Cosco folding step stool in which the top step is actually a padded seat. We've used it as a step stool and as emergency toddler seating.
Free: 9' Market Umbrella (Near Nob Hill store) Expired 114d - This is the 9' Sunbrella fabric market umbrella sold at Wayfair. It's been lightly-used; the fabric is still in great shape. Caveat: the winding mechanism has failed, so you have two options: re-string the cord that allows winding mechanism to work OR (simpler task!), drill a hole in the shaft and use one of your many leftover Ikea Allen wrenches to hold the umbrella in the "up" position. The photo shows how I've done that on one of our other umbrellas.
Free: Folding support bracket for mirror, easel, etc. (Near Nob Hill store) Expired 244d - We decided to hang our mirror, which means we have the folding support system with which it shipped as surplus. See photos--actual photo of the bracket as well as manufacturer's photo showing how it's used. Width is 20" and height is 38"; it provides quite sturdy support for a 60" tall mirror weighing around 25 pounds. Can be attached to wood or metal surfaces with appropriate screws.
Free: 4' section of 3" diameter steel tubing (unused section of flagpole) (Near Nob Hill store) Expired 1y - It's swaged slightly at one end; if you cut that off, you'd have 43 or 44 inches of usable tubing
Free: Metal edging, stakes and connectors (near Nob Hill store) Gifted 1y - This is the brown-painted steel yard edging sold at Home Depot and elsewhere. There are two 4 foot lengths of the edging (it's 4" high) as well as several stakes, corner stakes, and splicing connectors.
Free: 2 loungers for patio (near Nob Hill) Expired 1y - Two sun loungers (European-made with cast-resin frames and weatherproof slings). They could use a good scrub down and one of them will need to be re-laced (though it works fine as is). They open to fully-horizontal.
Free: 3 solar-powered LED lights--clip to rain gutter (Near Nob Hill store) Gifted 1y - As seen in photo. These come in a set of 4; I have 3 remaining plus the mounting hardware and manual.
