Take a Penny, Leave a Penny!

Close to three years ago, karnythia hosted an LJ post where she asked people to leave a comment if they had something they wanted or needed, or if they had something they were willing to give or offer.

I got two things: yarn and friends.

This is how I met rosefox, who has since become one of the people in my life whom I value most.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about that and what a big impact it had on my life over the past three years. And it made me want to do it for other people.

Quoting karnythia's post from all those years ago:

What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you have?

Feel free to answer any or all of them. They do not need to be realistic things (I put world peace on mine last time) If you don't have a LiveJournal, or would prefer to answer anonymously, give us a way to contact you.

Feel free to share this on LJ, DW, and other social media if you like.

Damn, too much comment for one text box!


  • Mossimo black pencil skirt in a satiny fabric (but polyester, lol), size 2. Pretty sure this one's from Target or Ross. Never worn.
  • Rampage high waisted pencil skirt in beige/metallic silver/pink plaid. Kinda retro looking, with an attached belt in the same fabric. Size 3. Worn a few times, with a couple of strings, but nothing that couldn't be trimmed off. (Kinda like this, but with a thicker fabric belt and in the other colors.)
  • Charlotte Russe mint/grey striped A-line skirt. Thick fabric. Size 5. Worn this skirt several times, but it's pretty nice quality and isn't really showing any wear.
  • Fossil grey wool skirt with buttoned pockets on the hips. Knee length. Size 4. Worn a few times, but again in great shape.

Whew! That's it for now. Let me know if you have any questions or would like me to take pics of some of the clothes that I couldn't find pictures of online. I'll also find all the tops, though that may have to wait until tomorrow as my fiance's about to go to bed and I'm sure he would not enjoy me rooting around in the closet!

That sequin dress looks awesome. How much would shipping for that be, like, $5? (Also I'm going to San Antonio Worldcon in August, so if you'll be there we could hand it off in person; I realize that's a long shot.)

Sorry to take so long to get back to you! I'm checking on shipping and will let you know ASAP - just wanted to check in and let you know I didn't forget.

...whoa - you weren't kidding about having a lot of stuff! And kudos on your taste; most of it sounds gorgeous!

tilivenn has already laid claims to the sequin dress, but other than that I'll happily take large swaths of this stuff off your hands! The Delia's jeans, the Elle dress, the Kessley dress, and all the skirts. PM me to let me know how much the shipping will run, and I'll send you my address!

And if there's anything you want... I feel kind of greedy, taking and not giving back. (And if you're ever in Boston and want an adventure buddy, I LOVE adventures...)

I also live in the Boston area and like adventures. I'll wear that dress, it looks like it's adventure-ready :P

Sorry to take so long to get back to you! I've been running around doing back-to-school stuff. I'm checking on the shipping and will message you as soon as I've got that figured out, but I wanted to let you know I didn't forget!

Don't feel bad at all, this is a huge favor to me! I need less stuff. And if I'm ever up in Boston, that sounds awesome!
