Please, no broken items, no mattresses and no old TVs. If you have a very large item, please check with us before bringing it to the event or post it as available in the comments. Maybe someone will come get it from you prior to the event!
Please be mindful of the fact that this is an event meant to build community and consider your neighbors who will also be browsing. This is all done in kindness and sharing, and we hope attendees will act with that in mind.
