For anyone who's not hip to this yet, there's a site at freecycle.org
And depending on your location, you can sign up for a yahoo group and people post things that they're giving away for free.

So far I got
electric scissors
a huge aluminum pot that i plan on melting wax in.
about a dozen cookie tins
rug hooking stuff
embroidery hoops
fabric
a neat file cabinet
a snowboard
a kitty cat....

It's really great for crafters b.c you're not coming out of pocket for all of your supplies.
check it out!!

It's great!  I think that everyone should sign up and get some free stuff.

Anytime you can save and not invest alot is a good thing.

One man's junk is another man's crafty supplies.

I feel better about reconstructing and cutting up someone elses stuff, that way if I ruin something, hey it was free anyway...

Nearly everything in my apartment came off the curb at some point or another... and the place looks fabulous.

I got like, fifty million little green, blue and orange army men from one guy, and I had really come by to pick up a fishtank and some other freecycle stuff he had listed..

Today,when I went by to pick up some stuff from this lady, she had like a dozen home crafting books that she gave me.  They're all circa 1960ish 70ish, can't wait to crack em open and make some stuff.
