I really wish that I could give these things to someone who wanted them:

an almost new Rhode Gear bike baby seat GONE

great biofeedback DVD set The Journey to Wild Divine

a brand new HUGE (family size) colorful mayan hammock (with hardware for hanging from the ceiling, indoors or out) GONE

a wooden desk, freshly painted bright red and yellow

a brand new inversion table, like this one GONE

We have two items, you can take one or both. I'd really like to give these to a family (or families) that *need* them.

Epson Perfection 1650 scanner with transparency adapter (so you can scan in slides, negatives, etc)

Epson Stylus Color 900 printer (with some ink still left in cartridges, you'll just need to run a head cleaning once you have it hooked up to your PC)

Both work just fine. DH upgraded awhile back, we haven't had luck selling them and now we need them out of our way since we're packing up to move.

PM me. I can meet people in/around McLoughlin (99E) in Milwaukie/Gladstone area.

This bridesmaid dress:
http://www.davidsbridal.com/bridesma...&prodgroup=110

Half a set of Popular Science encyclopedias from the 60's. Full of cool old pictures for scrappers/papercrafters.

Old quilting magazines

We moved Chase up to a Britax Marathon yesterday, and now I'd like to pass our Graco Snugride on to someone who really needs it.

This seat was manufactured in Dec. 2004, so it has about 2 years left on it before it expires. It was used first by my neice (born 6/05), then by my son (2/07). It has NEVER been in an accident and has not been recalled. I don't know what the pattern is called, but it is blue and tan checked. We have the manual, locking clips, head cushions, "boot", etc.

Bonus: TWO bases, for those two car families.

Remember: PMs ONLY

Reviving this thread because I am in reducing mode.... I have:

A nice brown leather camera bag with several pockets

An Eddie Bauer Diaper bag, but it is small. Too small for cloth diapers really, but it is a sporty little bag that doesn't even really look like a diaper bag. I have pictures of it if you PM me your email.

Unopened roll of wallpaper with a coral reef theme. Ditto on the pictures.

Does anybody wear cufflinks?! These are from my dressing like a boy stage. Two really nice pairs. One is silver and art deco looking, the others are large and round, silver with purple stones in the middle (amethyst?) My mom had $40 on these in her store! But I really have no idea how to find out what they are worth, and I don't want to deal with selling them because I don't know enough about them.

I was JUST thinking about reviving this thread and the other one (What I wish I could have...) and maybe we should have another cake party. Thinking that getting things off our hands, etc. could be nice just before the holidays... although it also could just be too busy.

I was thinking about the idea of having a cake party and craft swap all at the same time? What do you think? If someone wants to help with location ideas I would help organize.

That room at the Kennedy School is usually pretty good... or do you think that will be too small? The place last year was fine too I thought.

I think the Kennedy School room might be too small, if it was like last year. the ballroom where we had last years would be good if we just started (and stayed!) downstairs, I think...

I think the downstairs at the ballroom would be perfect

Yeah, things did get pretty spread out!

So who is going to start the wish thread? I'm a thread killer, so it shouldn't be me.

I have a (potty never used but the step stool portion was used) Safety 1st Potty. White base with white pot inside and teal seat, yellow cover and blue handles.

Indy was too short when we began potty training to sit over the pee guard. So I bought another potty to start the process. When he grew tall enough to be able to use it we were in a routine with another potty.

We are moving this Saturday and I would love to not have to take it to the new house. PM if interested.

I'm wondering if we should start new threads for this year... it can be confusing for someone joining in to look at last years' stuff... what do you think?
