I'm soon to be a Montrealer. I've got a house to empty out in a week or, if absolutely necessary, a touch more.
There's some stuff that folks might care for, depending on their tastes and extra space at home.
Vacuum, Shark, under 2 years old.
Iron, old, still works like the kind of appliance that makes old folks say "they don't make them how they used to". This is how they used to.
Toaster Oven. The sort you buy new for $60 or receive as a hand-me-down from someone else who got it the same way. I hand it down to you.
Microwave, the simple kind where you turn the knob to how many minutes and... that's it. No freaky buttons or excessive controls. Like an Amish Microwave, except for the electricity bit. =)
Mini-cuisinart - grind 2 cups worth of whatever. Get whatever's consent first, or else be sure it's inanimate.
A couple workhorse pots or pans. The sort anyone gives away when they move.
An Ikea Queen fold-out futon.
A friend of mine has dibs on this, but I list it here just in case.
Several hundred Kinder Surprise Egg Toys, mostly from the 90s. Much beloved by me, but I'm older now, and my wife has something called a "design aesthetic" that I'm aspiring to.( Read more...Collapse )
