What is allowed

Kathy Fairchild and Kari Dalton have collaborated on an idea. We started a blog so all our local friends can post items they need or no longer need. Our goal is to provide a safe, free place to give away, trade, buy or sell stuff. Did you ever want to get rid of something and not want to transport it somewhere? Did you ever want those addorable baby clothes to go to someone in your ward who needed them, only you didn't know who might want them? Has there ever been a need in your area for free furniture or household items? How many times have you needed something only to find out that your friend just donated it to charity or sold it at a garage sale? Has your child ever needed a book for school but you didn't want to buy a brand new one? How nice would it be to post your need on this blog and have one of your friends lend it to you?

Here are some ideas for what could be given away, lent, sold or traded:
Household items

Not Allowed: Plese don't offer anything that is not in good condition. If it is your garbage, then no one else will want it either. Anything that is broken, missing pieces or items that do not function or work properly will be taken off the blog by the administrators.

We would like to see this evolve and become what we all need, a place to swap or trade or unload things that have no value to us but could be just what another person is looking for.

Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.

How this works:

Leave a comment on what you have available, or what you are looking for and we will post it as soon as possible or send us a e-mail to Please try to be specific in your descriptions and/or include a low resolution picture.

If you find something you are interested in just leave a comment with your blog or email address and the person who put the item up will get in touch with you. If you don't want to post your e-mail address, then we can forward your message to that person for you.

Hopefully this will work out well for us all. Just know that we are new to this, so please be patient with us as we work out the bugs.

Thanks for participating and we hope you find many treasures that are "Used like New".

We are trying to keep this local to make the trading simple and easy for us all.
