It occurred to me that, from time to time, I have items that while good and worthwhile, I am ready to part with, but are not worth the trouble of selling on eBay or otherwise - either didnt cost that much or are not mint anymore, but that I wouldnt mind giving away to a forum member, as a way of encouraging other forum members to do the same thing. What made me think of this is - for years I had toyed with the idea of buying an Hermes bag in blue jean - a very expensive mistake if the color is wrong. And its a strong color - definately not for everyone. At the suggestion of several members of the Hermes forum, I invested in a small mini wallet - less than $500 - in blue jean. Six months later, I am sick of blue jean and definately am over the blue jean thing. Its not worth it to me to try to sell it, but I would be willing to give it away to some other forum member debating the blue jean question. After all, the forum saved me perhaps thousands of dollars. Maybe my example can help others spread the good vibes around, too. Just a thought. If you think this is a wacky idea, I wont be offended. PS I am not an invited member - never submitted the application - but if you think this is a good idea but on a private forum basis, I would like to be considered for membership.
