If you have something to sell, please include description of item, desired price and contact info.  If you’ll accept a trade, mention what you’d be willing to take in exchange.  If you are looking to buy something, please describe and include your contact info.  

Ads may stay on bulletin board up to a month, please let us know if your item has been sold prior to that so we can keep everything nice and up-to-date!

We’re excited about being able to offer this service, and hope you can use it!
