To give and to sell

Dear Toronto-area people,

I'm moving from an apartment we furnished ourselves to a furnished one across the ocean, and it's time to get rid of most of the really big things that I own here. I need to have dealt with all of these things one way or another before the end of June, and the sooner I start, the more likely I am to finish in time.

All of you get first dibs, since you're so easy to coordinate with, and I'll look further afield - ads if necessary - in a few days for all the things you're collectively not interested in. Unfortunately, I don't have a car and thus can't drive anything over to you. Photos and measurements available of anything you'd like more information about.

To Give Away

Cart Black cart
Cabinet Orange doors, white small cabinet, random white shelf

Stuff gatherin'
John and I want to get together with you anyway, to quest for yummy things: we could end our travels at your place to look at the sofa and bookshelves and such. Lemme know your schedule, sweets.

Ooo, I just noticed out my window that I have chives in blossom! Yum!

Re: Stuff gatherin'
Mmmmm..... good cheese. Friday, I'm not busy until 7 pm. Would that work for you? I have other times available too, of course, but Friday might be the simplest day to work with in the near future.

We have a desperate need for bookends! We also might be interested in some of your small furniture (small dressers, bookcases, etc.), depending on sizes and things, but we'd have to come over and have a look at it before we could say for sure. We're free on most Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, and as of next week curtana is on maternity leave and we could come over during the daytime as well.

My bookends are your bookends! Would later afternoon this Friday or Sunday work for you? If not, my schedule is much more flexible for all next week.

Let's leave it till next week sometime. We're pretty free from now on during the daytime.

If you want it, it's yours.

They're both fairly light weight (and not yet spoken for) - 2 people could easily handle them on public transit. Elsewise, asking friends nicely?

Sounds good! Also, larkvi has volunteered to transport things, if necessary.

I will happily take any games that you are leaving behind you. I shall also have to take another look at your bookshelves.

If you are in a bind for transporting something, I may be able to take it in my station wagon.

Excellent. Would Thursday evening or late Sunday afternoon work for you, or would you prefer to come by somewhen next week?

Next week would be better.

Hey hon! When you say knives, do you mean butter knives or sharp kitchen knives? Because if you have any small sharp knives, with 3"-6" blades, I could sure use one or two.

Sharp knives! (We're keeping all the blunt ones.) I have one paring knife in the 3" category. The rest are more like 8". You are welcome to just the small one, or all of them, if you so desire.
