The "I Have Available" thread!

post #1 of 96
Thread Starter 
Please list your gently used items here if you're unable to match them to a FIN.

MIN - Please ONLY PM TiredX2 if you see something you'd like.

Items are on a first come/first served basis and TiredX2 will update the thread as items are taken.

Thank you

Looked in the master list and didnt see any FIN needing these, so posting so that when someone does, we can get them to them.

I have three pairs of boys size 12 pants. All very nice, def "school clothes" worthy.
post #3 of 96
I'm a little confused. If I have some items, do I have to review each MIN profile to find a match? Can I just post things here if I don't have the time/desire to do that?

If you go to the master needs list, you can see exactly what's needed... It's basically divided into gender and stages and is much more manageable than looking at each FIN post...

You can look at the master list here : http://mothering.com/discussions/sho...9#post15908699

Or you can PM the facilitator in charge of the category you'd like to donate in.

I have been waiting since last Christmas to post these! I'll keep reviewing FIN profiles as well, but if someone sees a match, please let me know.

I have a pair of brand-new, tags-attached, one-size-too-small-for-DH, purchased-last-Christmas-and-not-returned-within-the-90-day-guideline, size 36x32 flannel lined khaki pants from Gander Mountain. They are not super thick or heavy duty, but DH has another pair in a size that fits him and wore them most of last winter when he had to be outside for work. I will be so glad to see these go to a good home!

I cleaned out my closet and I have a large number of women's button-down cotton blend blouses sizes Medium and Large, and women's dress pants sizes 8, 10, & 12 (I gave up on ever being skinny again ). All in really good condition, some with tags still on them.

My inability to lose is someone's gain!

I also have a pair of men's black dress slacks - size 36x32 with the tags still on them.

I have this nursing bra in a sz 36DD/E (or might be 36F, I can't remember). I have had it for about a year but don't wear it nearly as often as my others, the cut just isn't great on my breast shape I guess. It's beige.
I would love to pass it along to a mama who could use it. I know these busty sizes can be expensive and hard to find, and I'm not wearing it.

I have a ton of flannel - I have pink, light blue, navy, charcoal, hunter green, and a couple prints. It would work for diapers, or maybe even play cloths, anything. I am happy to pass it on to a mama that can use it.

I've got a pair of size 16R classic rise dress slacks from Old Navy, heather/light charcoal gray; Size 16 "skinny" jeans, ultra low waist (they don't have the super-tapered ankle, I think "skinny" refers to the hips/thighs); Size 14 red skinny jeans, "Sweetheart" cut; Size 14 boot cut stretch jeans, also "Sweetheart" cut. The last pair has significantly frayed hems, the other jeans have slight fraying on the hems (I have very short legs ). The dress slacks have no discernible hem damage but there may be some there. I've gotten a lot smaller this year ( ), so there may be more.

I have a bunch of sz LARGE diapers (aios and pockets, velcro closures, WAHM, PUL outers, microfleece inners, microfiber cores). I think there are around 8-10 of them.
They are pretty worn and some have staining, but they still have life in them and there are enough that it could really round out a small stash. There are some fun/bright colors of PUL (purple, orange, kelly green)--generally boy/neutral. They have only been through one kid but he was in them for over a year and we had an old washing machine that was kinda hard on them. I had kept them for my current baby but they all have the microfleece inners, and he breaks out from synthetics. I was going to offer them free-for-shipping, but if there is a mama who would like them I would very happily send them.

I ALSO have about a dozen SMALL pocket diapers, which are in quite good shape. (Two kids, total of 6m, usually with liners, front loading washer...I think they still qualify as 'gently used' but not quite 'like new') Ditto on on the pul/microfleece thing. They are all white (inner/outer). They are also WAHM diapers, with snaps (FuzziBunz style) I have inserts for them though the inserts are brightly colored microfiber so it shows through a bit. I will send with or without inserts to a mama who needs them.

I have 3 nursing bras in this style. Size 34G. I wore two of them twice each and the third is still in the packaging. I must have mis-measured as these were too tight before a nursing session for me.

I have a pair of mens slippers size 12 that are like new probably never been worn with rubber soles with trends on them. Is there a min thats husband would be grateful to have these?

I have a set of Queen sheets, NIP. They will not fit a modern extra-deep mattress, but will fit a futon or other older-style bed just fine.
