Free: Two big boxes of books (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - I'm downsizing my library, and have two big boxes of books to give away. Mostly SF/F, except for the chunk of Carole Nelson Douglas "Irene Adler" mystery series seen in the middle of Box 1, the cull also includes: Box 1 shown Terry Pratchett's four Tiffany Aching books (Discworld) A hefty chunk of Anne Bishop's "Dark Jewels" series The Carole Nelson Douglas books Another hefty chunk of a series called "The Horus Heresy" series (various authors) Box 2 shown A large chunk of Steven Brust's "Vlad Taltos" series (almost all, I think) A more modest chunk of Jim Butcher's "Dresden" books A pile of Glen Cook's "Garrett PI" series ...and in each case, there's a misc. pile of other and older SF added, and in one box an ancient art history book that I actually don't figure anyone will want. I know I could just donate these, but figured I'd like to give anyone with an interest in the "chunks" a chance at them. To respect the "fair offer" policy, I won't be looking to see if anyone's interested, before sometime late Sunday.

Free: Surplus Lunchware (Queensway Terrace North) Withdrawn - Now that I'm retired, and not packing lunches, snacks, and workout drinks any more, I have a fair bit more lunchware than I need. All in good shape, and looking at the food containers, except for the red-lidded one, they're all good for packing anything that isn't too soupy (like soup) in backpacks and similar. I'd like to give this all as one lot, and if there's anything you don't need, just toss it or pass it on. Doing the fair offer thing, I won't respond to any messages before Friday evening.

Free: Drafting Tools Kit (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - Does anyone still use drafting tools and triangular rulers like this? I inherited two of these kits from my father--one that I know he used, as an amateur draftsman doing architectural drawings, and this one which seems brand new and I don't ever recall seeing him use. If it would be useful to anyone now, I would like to gift it. It looks like very good quality tools, but is this sort of work still done by hand any more?

Free: Jiu-Jitsu Sparring Gear (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - Years ago, I used to do jiu-jitsu, and when I retired from it, wiped down my gear with Febreeze and packed it away in a metal bin from Ikea. - a foam helmet, never much used - a pair of medium footie shields, a bit worn but still sound - a pair of gloves, less worn but still sound - the foam nunchucks I got with the set, not the greatest and hardly ever used - a knee bandage and wrist bandage, never really used because too small for me. I would now like to give it all away, and it can go packed in the bin if you would like it.

Free: Retro Hanging Lamp (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - This cool old retro hanging lamp, meant to hang off the wall on a sweet swinging arm, is surplus to my needs after remodeling of the room it hung in. It's in good condition, and if I had any other place to hang it, I'd really prefer to keep it--but I don't. So the question is, would anybody else like it?

Free: Antique Fire Irons (Boot Scrapers?) (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - They're old, dull, kind of scruffy looking and a bit corroded though not what I would call surface-rusty. Would anybody like them?

Free: Two Surplus Billy Bookcases (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - I have two tall Billy bookcases (Ikea) surplus to my needs. The newer is a pleasant but oddball burgundy colour, comes with matching glass doors, and only has the standard number of shelves these bookcases come with. The older is a standard 'birch' model, with an extra shelf that makes it good for paperback-sized books. The problem is, I have no way to transport or deliver these--whoever takes them, needs to be able to pick them up.

Free: A great, sturdy, older sofa (Queensway Terrace North) Gifted - This great, sturdy old couch came with my house (a smoke-free, pet-free home) when I bought, back in 2015...and I was happy to keep it, because it was in excellent condition and comfortable for sitting. Now, however, I'm downsizing furniture and need it to move on. Way too good to just junk, but I'd be happy to see it go to anyone who can come and take it. Located close to where Richmond Road crosses Carling Ave.
