The saying goes that desperate times call for desperate measures. For the Freecycler, a desperate time can be a hankering for crabapples or navy bean soup and the desperate measure means driving up to 10 minutes. Or even into the city.
WANTED: Hammock Stand
The dead tree had to go and as such, I lost the ability to hang my hammock. I don't want to wait a few years for the replacement tree to be big enough to support my needs so I'm looking to you good folks for help. Do you have a hammock stand taking up room in your yard that you aren't using? Let me adopt it and put it to good use. Wood, metal, PVC, commercially made or your own home made creation. I'm not picky, just desperate for some quality R&R time!!!
I'm in SW B'more but can travel to pick something up from you. Enjoy this glorious weekend. It would be a great one for some hammock time ;)
WANTED: Kid's spacesuit (or something similar)
For a school project, my 3rd grader needs to dress as an astronaut. I can probably make a paper mache helmet, OR a jumpsuit, but not both in the time alloted. Anyone have a kid-sized jumpsuit or spac-ey helmet you want to get rid of? I'm in Towson and will drive anywhere between White Marsh and Catonsville to pick up. Also north as far as Sparks or south into the city. Yes, I'm desperate.
WANTED: Simple stupid clothes hamper near Towson
I have a chronic laundry pile in my mudroom, and a desperate urge to contain it. Anybody have a basic, rectangular clothes hamper that needs a new home? I'm not looking for the old-school "wicker" with a padded lid here. Just the basic Rubbermaid looking rectangle, no lid necessary (because it will become yet another Horizontal Surface That Collects Flotsam). Color is not important. Condition IS; I'd like it to not be broken anywhere because it will need to put up with some abuse from my energetic children.
Since I'm in Towson, I'd like to keep it to a 10-minute drive or less. Thanks in advance!
A treadmill for our puppy with a lot of energy! Don't care about fanciness, just something that will wear her out! She has jumped our fence and we are desperate to exercise her safely!
Do you have a crabapple tree in your yard? I desperately would like to harvest some of the apples. I'll bring my own ladder and everything! I'm just a little homesick and would like some crabapple jelly. Thanks!
WANTED: Navy Bean Soup
I just can't find this in my grocery stores anymore!! I'm getting desperate. :-) One of my all time favorite soups. I don't care the brand - as long as its fresh, sealed, in unopened container (no home-made, please, and no recipes as I don't care to cook much). If you don't have any but know where to get some, I'd love to get that info! I've searched the internet high and low and didn't come up with much, other than recipes. :-(
Thus far, most recently, I've found it at Homestyle Buffet, Thursday nights. But of course I just can't bring home a can of theirs to heat up whenever I want navy bean soup. So, please, "spill the beans" on where I can get some to heat up at home. Thank you!!
