Hey friends,

I’m getting ready to move and am getting rid of a lot of stuff. Let me know if you’re interested in any of it – it would be great if you wanted to give me some money (make me an offer) or a trade (dinner?), although the important thing is to find new homes for everything (anything unclaimed will go to a thrift store). I crossed out the things that have already been claimed…

Contact me to set up a time to pick stuff up!
