I really LOVE Freecycle!
I answered a post on our local Freecycle (Portland, Maine) where a woman was clearing out her house for putting said house up for sale.
Her mother-in-law was an impulsive crafter-buyer and ended up just packing and storing yarn and yarn and yarn and yarn and yarn and yarn and yarn and...well...
ELEVEN STORAGE BOXES PACKED TO THE BULGE!!! with acrylic and polyester and WOOL!!!
Solids and variegateds and...words just cannot describe my treasure.
There was so much weight that my roommate's 1991 Cadillac with the human sized trunk and back seat -- the car started going through the auto-leveler and you could sit in the front seat and WATCH the car leveling out -- from all the weight of the yarn.
