Virtual yard sale... well... giveaway

I decided that I don't want to be a hoarder when I grow up, so I am being ruthless now about getting rid of clutter.  Much of my stuff I can happily cart off to goodwill and blow it a kiss goodbye, but there are a few things which, though I do not use, I feel sad about throwing to the wind.  These are the things that I have collected for their uniqueness, or things with sentimental value, or things given to me by friends.

So, here is my special offer:  THEY ARE FREE TO ANYONE WHO WANTS THEM!  Just ask me about them.

Beautiful skirt nabbed from Allison's free pile years ago.  It is too tight around the waistband.  Always has been, and I'm beginning to think it always will.

80's Nordstrom leggings!  Nice thick fabric, crazy design.  I feel like I look like a giant toddler when I wear them.

Speaking of giant toddler...

This is very cool in its construction:  you can have any of 4 colors as your front...

There are no inside seams!  Of course, the colors are a little clownish.

These are 3/4 length leggings, very lightweight and stretchy... little tiny giraffes on them...  just, you know... giant toddler.

Cute fluffy sunflower skirt!  It's adorable!  I just never wear it for some reason!  (From Allison.)

My original potato-print Obama shirt.  This is a historic artifact-- I made it for the 2008 election!

Little stripy leotard.

This shirt is soooo cool.  As in dorky.  But cool.  A leopard and a tiger are just chillin' together.

Cute vintage-y looking skirt.

The photo doesn't quite show the colors accurately.  This is white, grey, and pink.  Reminds me of a grandma.

Really sweet dress from Allison, brought back as a souvenir from Germany way back in high school.  But alas... it is too small.  If no one claims this...  I still don't think I can just take it to goodwill.  I'll have to find someone I know to take it.

Crappy photo... but cozy cowl!  I made it a long time ago and used it for skiing.

Crochet hat- also made by me.

Weird-ass sweater.  There's a little window with repeating dudes on bikes!  The sleeves are like... half length sleeves.

Anyway, just let me know if you want anything!  Otherwise, most of these things will be... *sniff*  dropped off at goodwill!  It's hard, but I don't want to become...

I have been going through all my old clothes to try and purge as much crap as I can from my life.  This is a difficult process.  I found many mate-less socks.  Strangely, most of them are solid grey/blue/black/brown ones that I don't remember ever wearing (most of my socks are vibrant colorful patterns!)

So, my options were:
a. Give them away (no one would want a bunch of mismatched socks!)
b. Throw them away :(
c. Make something out of them.

The answer was pretty self-evident:

(obviously not finished-- this headless, armless doll is very fun to pose with her long monkey legs and tubular body, and cute butt!)
