Free blankets/sheets in need of repair and other odds and ends
Was there someone who repaired blankets for charity? I have 3-4 nylon horse sheets (Big D and similar-- breed show type), one heavy stable hood, and one felt lined wool stable blanket plus some random odds-n-ends (two girths, a cinch, some lead lines) that are free to anyone who will come get them or pay for me to ship. They all need some repair to buckles/surcingles or to patch small holes but none are TRASHED or ripped to shreds. Great for someone who repairs or who wants to make some sort of crafts project (dog blankets?) from the material. Located in South Jersey (Lumberton). Free!
Just found out that I have a friend that works in Old City at Market and 4th. He said he could meet you there. He would need to let security know when your coming. When is a good time for you?
Since he takes the train in, is there any way that you can divide the items up in separate bags that are easy to carry so that he can take one bag home at a time? He has to walk to the station, so that would be easier for him.
I'm giving something away for free. I'm already offering to pay gas/tolls to drive it into the city, take time out of my day to meet someone... and now I'm supposed to re-pack this stuff into a bunch of bags? Even split into bags, it's still going to be heavy?! Too heavy for someone to lug around on the train.
This is free stuff. You want it, come get it. Otherwise I'm going to just donate it or take it to Goodwill. There's a limit as to how much you can expect someone to spend their own time/money trying to GIVE you something FREE.
I am very sorry about that. You said that you could meet there. I will have to find a way to get them home. You are right, you have already done a lot. Thank you so much, I will find a way to get them.
Still happy to bring the bag of stuff to Philly but I want to drive up in my car and put the bag in someone else's car. I don't want to wander around the city or meet someone in their lobby or repack the bag. It's a big black garbage bag literally filled with blankets. You can come meet me in NJ or I'll meet you in Philly and give it to you.
