Well, I guess there must be plenty of other places where people rave about Freecycle on these boards, but I just felt like throwing in my 2 cents instead of lurking for a change! I haven't used Freecycle in quite a while, but I did use it quite a bit before I moved to get rid of all of the "extra" craft items I had accumulated. I felt SO GOOD giving these items to the people I "selected" from the respondants. I requested that they were people who would put the items to charitable use (a sweet little lady from a church group took my bear-making supplies to make them for fund raising) or use them for group craft activities (a girl scout leader took my candle making supplies). It seems that exchanging several e-mails and being specific about what sort of person I was looking to give these items to helped in my case. I only met one person at my home (I was moving anyway so it seemed safe!) and the others were either at work or and agreed-upon neutral location that I didn't mind waiting at for a bit. A few wacky e-mails and one no-show (who PROFUSELY apologized and we met again the next day) but all-in-all, a surprisingly good experience!Just one person's thoughts for those reading this thread with no Freecycle experience! :-)
