Stuff looking for a new home

A Super Single Water bed with BookShelf headboard and drawers underneath, very dark wood colour. Includes all the fixings including, a couple sets of sheets, a down duvet and three down pillows. Asking $300 or best offer. Available for pick up, or local delivery negotiable.

free Baseball caps. I keep receiving them from trade shows and such and I don't even wear them (I'm a Tilley hat wearer)

a bunch of old Dungons and Dragons stuff including; Dragon magazines (6,15,20,22-27,29-33,35-143), about 200 figurines, and a bunch of other stuff that I have yet to cataloge

I often have a bunch of books available as I am ready to purge my book collection. Just ask if I have a bunch already set aside and ready for looking over and pick up

- a number of different Token Ring adapter cards, cables, and 'hubs'
- misc memory and bits from the late 1990's and early 2000's.
I have been purging as I don't do much with hardward anymore and this older stuff just isn't needed as much anyways, so if you have such a need for it, get in touch before it is gone.

Wine Bottle Exchange

How to describe bottle shapes? Check out the entry at the very useful Wikipedia.

My Dad has enough bottles currently but when he looking for then he is very picky for certain plain green Bordeaux bottles.

I tend to get clear Bordeaux bottles and the occasional assorted Burgundy bottles. I currently also have a bunch of 'Southern Comfort' bottles in both 1L and 40oz available. A bunch are already set aside and ready for looking over and pick up

I'm currently collecting, regular size clear Bordeaux bottles 1/2 L brown Burgundy, 1/2 bottle green Bordeaux screw tops (Chateau des Charmes), assorted 1/2 bottles with some also available as I sort them out
