Yes!! Great idea! I would use it. Could we also, work out trades?

For example: I have two saddles, inexpensive dressage saddle and a older
cut back saddle that I would trade for a saddle that had an XW wide tree, all purpose
or anything at this point....(even treeless)

Sally - trading is also a great way to fulfil a need :rolleyes: However when doing that, one person has an idea of what their item(s) are worth and when those item(s) are traded, someone may think they got the short end of the stick so to speak. That is unless of course the two individuals could do the touchy feely thing before trading :)

The main reason why this is such a good thing is EVERYTHING is FREE - except the shipping for those of us who are not close to the items wanted/needed :) Thus the name FREECYCLES :)

Please continue listing items that you may have available for those that are looking whom might just have a need :)

Hi Denise,

I agree, keep this separate from the trading .......
I do love the free concept!

I know this is a little strange freecycle offer but I have Mille Fleur D'Ulcce Bantam fertilized eggs that can be set in incubator or under hens for hatching. I have hatched out all the Milles I want this season so I can offer up to about 8 a day for free to anyone who might want to add this pretty little breed into their coops, the eggs could be picked up in person or I can ship them through USPS at a cost of $8.85 flat rate shipping for up to 18 eggs. Here is a picture of the Mille Fleurs

GoBlue- I have 3 1/2 and 5 year old boys who would LOVE any of the legos/etc you could send this way. My 5 year old is wicked good at building things and he is short on legos and buildy things.

I have a very well used pair of Sports Medicine Boots, probably size medium, dirty and well used but structurally sound. Navy blue.

I also have a western show blouse (the kind that snaps at the crotch), ladies size small, gold/black/burgandy but not gawdy that I would love to pass on to a youth rider. I think I still have the matching tan utlrasuede chaps but I'll have to look.

I love this idea. I have loads of horsey and non-horsey stuff. I have begun my pre-divorce packing and had no clue on how much stuff I have. I will begin to inventory and keep the freecycle stuff off to the side so I can place it out here for everyone to see.

Awesome idea!!!!

I have some career (suits, pants) clothing that I could stand to get out of my closet. I will let you know sizes and take pictures.

If you haven't found a home for these, I have a youth rider that would love to have them.

what a wonderful idea. I had never heard of freecyle.....I need to check it out.

I will have to dig around the house and see what I can find. I HATE having garage sales and would much rather give things to people who can use them, so much easier and a lot less stress.

I know someone else has spoken up for the little girl clothes but my daughter wears size 10 in clothes right now so if you have any summer clothes that the other person does not want let me know. Bridgette is in little girls clothes (not toddlers or teens).
