I had taken it apart oh so long ago to use the turntable for my DJ projects, but I decided not to bring it anymore as it's fragile and precious. One of these days I'll have to get a portable one but until then I'll just use my digital implements.
I put the former cabinet or shelf thing that held the stereo stuff on Craigslist a couple days ago. I'm still not sure it's the right decision, but it's so hard to connect everything through the tiny holes in the back.
I had some more adventures with the Buy Nothing page on Facebook. I found a new home for a mandolin that once belonged to Dylan. He got it a few months before he died but never got to learn to play it as planned. Only recently did I think that it might be a good thing to gift someone. It now lives with a good person whose lovely friend got it from me on the FB page. I also gave away an old folding mirror to a person with spectacular selfies of their groovy makeup and hairstyle combos. I was disappointed that I couldn't be there when they came to pick up (it was a "porch pickup").
Hokay, I topped off this week's giveaway streak with a guy coming over to take a big ugly lateral file that had been in my basement for over ten years!! No one wanted it on FB so Craigslist free stuff came to the rescue. It had held DVDs for all of that time but most of those have been sold or shifted somehow. I had to move the washer, dryer, and a full shelf of old books to make way for the dolly to take it out. The guy had just enough room in the back of his pickup to squeeze the thing in! He seemed like a pro at scooting giant heavy metal boxes.
You might wonder, after all these years, why I'm STILL doing this donating/selling dance. I do wonder too, but I remember how there had to be literally about five times the books, DVDs, furniture and other accoutrements four years ago and it all starts to make sense!
