Polar Express “golden ticket” in new condition — never removed from its plastic sleeve. Pretty cool accessory for anybody who loved the book or movie “Polar Express.” Solid, shiny and seven-inches long, the train side has a hologram of the Polar Express and the opposite side says “The Polar Express – Round Trip – Ticket No 0001225;” $25.

CIMG9321-1 CIMG9325-1Next up are a pair of reindeer — Clarice and Rudolph from the 60s “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.” These reindeer are from the Build-a-Bear workshop, so these are solid and well done. Both have removable clothing, shoes (Yes, they are red and glittery, Dorothy!), and collar with bell. They are stuffed animals and super soft and cuddly, but their legs are stiff enough to stand on their own. Rudolph’s nose lights up with a replaceable battery (needs a new one).  Great as holiday decorations or somebody’s toy/friend; $25.

Proceeds for both go to the Regional Food Bank’s Holiday Hunger Appeal. Please help local families eat this winter.

This is an LL Bean “Kids Pull Sled and Cushion,” which is a handmade wooden sled with a pull rope for getting uphill. Going downhill, it cruises at speeds that are not crazy fast — great for toddlers and little ones. It is in great shape overall, cushion shows no wear, the steel runners on the under side are in great shape too. Cute daughter, who has outgrown the sled, not included! $100.


This is a vintage 58″ Gladding toboggan with cushion (google that for flashbacks to Christmas movies of yesteryear).  It is all wood and that hand-steamed, curved front is something to be seen. The wood is in good shape (could use some lemon oil to restore the shine but there are no splinters, cracks, or twists), and it ZOOMS downhill like “greased lightnin’ .”  Again, cute daughter not included. $60.

All proceeds go to the Regional Food Bank’s Holiday Hunger Appeal to help feed families this winter!

Please contact Jamey at 629-8178 or if you’re interested in either item.

Handcrafted tater & onion bin
Very nice bread/chips/tater/onion bin. It is about 43″ high with good size compartments. This was handcrafted and carved and would be a very nice addition to your kitchen! I have rarely used it and I am rearranging my not-so-big kitchen. This was purchased for me at $100 (handmade by a gentleman in Texas). I like the natural look, but it can be stained or another coat of poly can be put on it. Take it away for $50.

Simmons’ full-size mattress and box spring
Have company/family/friends coming for the holidays and they refuse to stay in a hotel? How about this rarely used
set that has been in a guest/spare room. It has always had a mattress pad/cover and linens on it. There is a small to medium hole in the netting underneath on the box spring,
(compliments of a visiting feline), but otherwise not damaged.  The color is an off-white/tannish color (matching
set); $140 for the set.

If you have either a Cub or Boy Scout uniform that is not in use and is ready for a new home, please consider donating it.

I live in a rural area and many of the families cannot afford to purchase Scout uniforms, which unfortunately discourages some boys from even joining scouting.  Thus, I will happily accept donations of any Cub Scout or Boy Scout uniform (or uniform components) and pass them along to scouts, who will make good use of them.

If you have a uniform that you would like to donate or have any questions, please feel free to contact me ( or ext. 7567).

Yours in scouting,

We need to part with a Kimball Performer Organ in pristine condition. Bench and music are included. The organ was used by a sweet, musically-inclined, elderly woman in her home.  No children or cats have played it. It fits easily into an SUV or a van.

I have two, twin box springs that are in great shape. They came from under our king mattress, but we’ve since upgraded to a sleep number bed. These box springs have been covered and well cared for and have been in a frame since initial use.

Free to a good home!

Can bring them to Jordan Road or meet you on main campus.

I have a Beginner’s Snowboard Ensemble consisting of a snowboard that measures 122 cm, a pair of children’s size 5 boots, bindings, child’s helmet and protective gloves that protect the wrist from bending. (We are told that wrist injuries are one of the most common snowboarding injuries.)

The snowboard, helmet and boots were purchased used and are in used condition, some scratches, scuff marks etc. The gloves and bindings were purchased new and are in great condition. This is a great set for someone who is just starting out and wondering if it is something they would enjoy.

All total we paid $180, asking $90. (Will consider selling items separately.)
These items were only used one and a half seasons before my son decided it was not his “cup of tea.” I am far from a winter sports person, so if you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to get the answers.

Send e-mail to or call 629-4579.

As some of you may know, I am a certified “Mac-Head”, MacFanBoy, AppleLuvr, or whatever. As such, I do take some pride in the Macs we have at home. It has, however, come time to say “goodbye” to a good friend. It was used primarily as an audio/video server and did the job with ease. It has served me well and I’m a bit wistful at the prospect of seeing it go. It needs to go to a new home and will hopefully work for someone as well as it has me. 

Here are the details: 2007 Mac Mini. 1 GB RAM, 120 GB HD, Wireless, Bluetooth ( The system has been completely wiped and restored to the factory default OS. The system comes in the original box with all the original accessories. Everything works great. $125 for all.*

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for looking!

* Please note that this does not come with mouse, keyboard or monitor.

Adjunct English instructor Sandra Hutchison’s debut novel The Awful Mess: A Love Story is only 99 cents from all the usual ebook stores through Nov. 4. (That’s Kindle, Kobo, iTunes, Nook, and more. You can find all the links here.)

A contemporary twist on The Scarlet Letter, it offers more sex and a happier ending. It was also one of five general fiction semifinalists for the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. It currently clocks in with a 4.2-star rating at, where it has over 190 reviews.

If you prefer to read books constructed from paper, Market Block Books in Troy stocks it for $14.95, or the Marvin Library or the Upper Hudson Library System will lend it to you for free. (Sandra also has a few bargain seconds available in exchange for a donation to a local food pantry. Contact her at if you are interested.)

Her next book, The Ribs and Thigh Bones of Desire, is available for pre-order on Amazon, and releasing Dec. 9. It is set in the 1970′s in a small Western Massachusetts town where a 32-year-old physics professor and a 16-year-old babysitter must help each other grow up the hard way.

Both books are published by Sheer Hubris Press, a local small publisher that shares a suspicious amount of real estate with the author.
