Erika and I had just discussed finding a outdoor table for her and the kids to use this summer. We were planning to keep our eyes open at yard sales. I was also about to post on Free-Cycle but of course got side tracked as usual. Monday morning I was thrilled to see an offer for a patio table and chairs. I responded tight away to see if it was taken and received a call within an hour
It was available! We could pick it up that evening.
As stated in the offer it has a tad bit of rust and needs cleaned but I think they will be thrilled with it. The lady even tossed in all the cushions which I’ll recover for them.
It was a large oblong table with 5 chairs, one of which is a rocker. We thought it would take 2 trips but, par for the course Mr. Fix-It got it loaded in one. Just what he wanted to do right after work before supper. He’s such a good sport…I think I’ll keep him!
We have a fairly active free-cycle group that trades around. I love the idea of passing things along and blessing others instead of just tossing them out.
Do you use free-cycle? What are some of your finds?
We close on the house tomorrow!!!! I’m just a tad bit excited…. can ya tell?
