Hey all, I know this isn't very kosher, but I thought I'd mention it anyway, so forgive me.

One of our mutual friends has hit upon some tough times and needed to get rid of their bar due to the fact they they are going to be downsizing significantly.

They told me to do with it what I want, so I'm attaching a list of some of the things available. I'll be taking donations to help him out with some bills. No commissions. So let me know if you're interested in any of the following thank you gifts:



Offer is now closed. Thank you everyone.

Brian, I tried sending a couple of messages but they are not showing up in my "Sent Messages" folder. I don't know if this is a error on my end or not. If you haven't gotten a PM from me let me know please. THANK YOU!

I wish I could help out but I don't have much $$ to offer. There are some products on that list that are not available in Canada that I would love to get my hands on. I hope everything works out for this person.

Pierre, the only time things will show up in the sent folder is when you click on the option to add it to your sent folder. I got both messages. :wave:

Financial insecurity sucks, and when it impacts your life so significantly it can be tough to not become depressed by it. My best wishes and thoughts go out to your friend and our fellow WSer.

Hi. I have had the same, quite bothersome problem for some time now. None of my PM's seem to go out.

Gwyd, I tried sending you two in the past 2 days actually. (pick up that phone, and call me, haha!)

As Brian said,

It drove me crazy, too. I try to remind myself, they are PMs, not email. Go figure.

Sorry for being a bit off track with this. The baby kind of got me discumbobulated. I'll be sending out messages and updates to everyone throughout the rest of the week and updating the above list by removing what has been taken.

I may be interested in procuring a few things. Let me know when you've updated so I don't bother you asking about things that may already be taken. :wave2:

Same here. I was waiting to see what went first as I'm in no huge hurry. I have a couple bottles of booze already.

I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I'm updating it daily now. I'm simply removing them as they are gifted away, so if you see it, it's available.

Yep. As things are given out at gifts, they are taken off the list completely.
