Re: Tramp in local coffee shop

Humanity wins in this thread I remember a homeless man who would come to a cafe I waitressed at when I was a youngster. He was witty and oozed charisma although sometimes stand very offish.

Re: Second hand baby bits? Is it the done thing?

It might not be the "done thing" but it should be! Think of the earth's resources you are saving as well as the money. To be honest I've hardly sold off any stuff I no longer needed but have passed on gear to friends and donated to charities like Little Village. I have sold one of those baby Bjorn b...
