Coma Weekly FREECYCLE Digest

Freecycling is when a person passes on, for free, an unwanted item to another person who needs that item. From silverware to mobile homes, people worldwide are choosing to freecycle rather than discard.

[FreecycleComa] OFFER: box of random toys and some motor oil

Boy stuff – cars, misc. toddler and preschool level. The motor oil is used. I wasn’t sure if someone could use it again in their car. Please take it all and freecycle what you can’t use. Do not drink the motor oil.

Used motor oil can remove some carpet stains.

[FreecycleComa] offer: ping pong table, needs work

I got this ping pong table from another Freecycler a year or two ago. It saw some use (though not as much as I had hoped). The (lightweight, aluminum) base is beginning to separate from the table portion and is probably no longer sturdy enough to hold it up. At least one of the plastic wheels have bent under the weight of the table. That said, the (much heavier) regulation size ping pong table surface (two pieces) seems to still be usable.

If you want to try to fix it up or just use the table surface pieces on top of your own table, you are welcome to it.

If you can't figure out how to make it work we've used the table as a skate ramp.

If you can come in the evening, I’m willing to help you lift it. With two people, it may be tough—we may want to coordinate bringing a screwdriver to take it apart. You will need a truck. Or you could just break it into small pieces and fit it in a sedan type car. Probably the best idea since the table is crappy at best at this point.
Email me with pick up time. Table will be next to the curb near the trash but it IS NOT trash.

[FreecycleComa] WANTED: Rolling pin for kitchen and/or someone who can bake pies with it

If anyone has a rolling pin they no longer use (but still in usable condition), I would very much appreciate it. I am also looking for someone who knows how to bake pies and have an extra room available for the right person. I decided I would really like fresh pies but I am sick of going to the store. Thanks! Willing to travel in the near vicinity. Spare room in my apartment has it’s own private bathroom.



email me if you feel you have the right rolling pin/ personality for pie baking. Room and board is free.


Thanks, Bonnie
