Free: Vintage embroidery pattern transfer (Como Lake Ave) Expired - That is to say, the transfers are vintage. These came via a retired friends mom. They are iron on transfers that allow you to put an embroidery pattern onto fabric of your own choosing. There are two packages plus some loose sheets. Cute flowers, birds etc with that vintage look to them. Free: Curtains, valence, rods - kids room (Como Lake Ave) Gifted - Bright blue valence and Winnie the Pooh pleated curtains plus rods and brackets, and curtain hooks. Made for a window 72 inches wide by 36 inches tall. Would fit something a bit bigger. Curtains are lined and block light well but not 100%. These are homemade and quite well made (by me). Washed (and washable/ok for drier) but you probaby want to iron them. Preference is to give everything to one person.

Free: Gem Snap Lids for Canning (Como Lake Ave) Gifted - 4 boxes of Bernardin brand 'Gem Snap Lids' for canning. I don't know what size these actually are because the box does not specify other than the 'gem'. Unfortunately they don't fit any of my jars! So if you are looking to do some canning with Gem Jars, these may be the lids for you! Two opened (but nothing removed), two unopened. Free: Texas Inst. calculator for grade 9 (Como Lake Ave) Expired - Texas Instruments calculator TI-30Xa which my niece used last year for Grade 9. Excellent used condition, comes with the case.
