This bears repeating and praising, again. It's just a table in hallway, in the middle of the school, where people can leave and find stuff. The rules are: Anything you leave is still yours until someone claims it. If no one claims it, it needs to be disposed of another way. (Supposedly this should happen after three days, but some things stay longer, and occasionally someone has mercy and takes the whole unwanted loot to Value Village or Goodwill.)
The Free Table is BRILLIANT! I think every community and apartment building should have one. It's a great way to recycle and save money.
In our 18 months (!) at the school, what have we gotten from the Free Table?
- Furniture: A full-sized ottoman, and a little mushroom-shaped upholstered footstool
- Appliances: A working microwave
- Clothing: Rusty's full-length wool coat in immaculate condition; Dina's velvet dress and a summer jacket
- Jewelry: I'm still ecstatic about the beautiful heart-shaped amber earrings I found last week!
- A bread storage box
- A table lamp
- Candles, candle holders
- Numerous cat toys!
Yay for recycling and saving money!
And now for the continuing saga of the bald head and its piggy dinner:
Piggy prevailed! The white head now gets to enjoy a brussel sprout instead. With fly topping.
Next up: Froggies and rubber duckies go hot-tubbing...
