Fremont and Ballard aren’t included in the neighborhoods I can see on Nextdoor. If you’d like to post it, thanks, and I’ll check back here to see if there’s an answer.
Hi NWCitizen — The Bridge Care Center was exactly what I wanted. I just brought them 14 bags of clothing that will go for free to the people. Thanks for the recommendation.
Thanks, the Bridge Care Center sounds like it will take clothing to give it away.
Thanks. I’ll look into DAWN. Of the “not created equal” shelters, which should I avoid?
Dress for Success is a great program. But even among the clothes that I own I don’t have anything that would qualify as nice for an interview.
Edited to add that DAWN doesn’t accept clothing.
This is what I’ve been finding — places will sell the clothing, either to stores, or to use as fiber pulp. I wish I could find a place that would simply give it to someone in need.
I, too, would not have known about Fiber were it not for TandM posting here. I just got it, and I could not be more deliriously happy about it. I went from a whopping slug-speed of 1.3 Mbps (our DSL which promised 6) to 40. One happy customer here.
If you’re looking for small pieces of fabric, try Seattle Re-Creative on Greenwood between 84th and 85th. It’s been open since January. It’s also a great place to donate stuff that fits into their categories (office supplies, stuff that can be used in art or craft projects, etc.). Check their website.
For my regular glasses I go to Greenwood Optical and have high-quality lenses and frames. But for readers I need something really cheap — I have five pairs all over the house, and will need to change the prescription every couple of years. I like to support local businesses also, but they are too expensive for single-vision readers.
I just wanted to report that I used Blaine to and from the airport, and it worked out fine. They were on time, cars were nice, and the drivers were responsible. I’ll be using them again. Thanks for the referral.
My previous reply is not showing up when I use Firefox, but I see it when I use Safari. Those of you who don’t see your replies — what browser are you using? This sounds like something My Ballard should fix, but is there anyone minding the store these days?
I got a “site offline” screen on Ballard and Phinney for days, until I cleared the browser cache. Whoever was working on the site forgot to remove that screen. Try clearing the cache or using another browser, and the blogs should work again. Well, as much as they have been “working” these days, which isn’t much.
Going, going, gone. The cat beds are going to the orangey cat with the black stripes, Teigyr. Thanks!
Right, there’s not even a place to log in. I was told it’s broken and they haven’t been able to figure it out.
Maybe those of you who are connected to the Seattle Animal Shelter can tell me if they’d take cat beds.
Yess, the neww Nuttmeg is the same as thee oldd Nutmeg.
As this thread was going on and people were saying “Where is so-and-so?,” I was sitting here yelling “Here I am!!” But I guess none of you heard me.
It does seem that this site is on auto-pilot since I wasn’t able to get any help. At least on PhinneyWood they told me that there was a problem.
One thing to consider is that the lack of activity is because people can’t log in. I’ve been trying for months (since the changeover) to log in with no luck, and had several exchanges with someone at the tips@myballard address until they simply stopped answering. For some reason I was able to get in today.
I also can’t get into my PhinneyWood account, and the admin told me that the forum has been broken and they haven’t been able to fix it.
I wouldn’t be surprised if there were only a small fraction of users that can actually log in.
