Grab Bag

edited March 2006 in For Sale (FS) Classifieds
I was getting ready to take out my trash, but realized it is a veritable treasure trove for the right individual. I want to ask $7 because there's AT LEAST $14 maybe $15 worth of slightly used coffee grinds alone in there. Also some wise All-Natural potato chip crumbs that may not be much to you, but you'd easily be able to flip them to that "starving kid in Asia" we've all heard about. There's other good stuff in there also. Serious inquiries only will be provided pictures.

    If I send you a big bag of nothing thats just been sitting around....will you accept that and forward the Grab Bag to Troy? I think it might make his day and he can share it will all the attendees at PF 06.

    George maybe you should send it to your new friend who owns the Magnepan MG-1's.

    He might get on your good side :p . I think he'll appreciate the coffee grounds and All natural p-chip crumbs. Help a noob out :D :D :p

    Well, heiney9 has come up with the ideal solution. Knowing how generous George is, it only goes to reason that he would want to send his grab bag to someone who obviously doesn't have a clue. I know...there is probably not a clue in the grab bag....but whatever is there is more than what he has.... Go for it George!

    If there are any leftovers, I'll take them. The slugs in my compost bin work faster with a good caffeine buzz.

    George, I may be interested in the coffee grounds if they have been only slightly used. I've been looking at getting some from my local shop but if these are still in the filters, that would be better. Are you the original owner and do you still have the cans for shipping?

    Wait a minute, those "all natural Wise" chips are junk. Anybody knows that Kettle cooked are the only way to go. I smell something fishy, oh wait a minute...

    George, if that is your real name, you also have the same listing on Audiogon. How do we know you not going to sell the same "trash" multiple times and split. Looks like the old "cut and paste post scam" to me:D

    Antny, if you smell something fishy, you probably haven't been showering after sex. Wise All-Nat's ARE the industry standard. When you coming to look at these albums?
    I also have a line on some AR-9LS, maybe for real cheap, and maybe not far from you.

    The grinds ARE in the filters, and I am original owner/user. No original packing or owners manny. Sorry. Able to put in a travel cup though for local pick-up personnel.

    I have a comment for that...something about eating and cologne...

    Seriously, I'm sorry for missing this weekend. I'm swamped at work. I will have to call you, but it will be in the very near future. Ar-9LS, huh? Very interesting.....

    Everybody knows that the natural Lay's are the "Standard" of the industry. Just read the review in last month's Junk Food Gourmet.

    SOB is hoarding the good stuff. Effer is sitting on a STASH of empty Brylcreme tubes and cardboard inserts that new Brooklyn Guinea T's come with. I'm holding out for those.

    I prefer junk in a box rather than a bag. Box's can hold more junk and are just sturdier. Got any junk boxes George? I also think there would be more interest if you posted some pics. Where's the pics, mon?

    George, are you willing to split-out the coffee grinds? Are they Folgers by chance? No decaf though, decafs for pussies.
