|Weber 22" grill, but black|
While my friend and I were putting things in an empty storage unit, we asked two guys who had the only two carts if we could use one for just a short time. They agreed, and we got things into the storage units quickly.
When we took the cart back, they asked if either of us wanted the items in the hall--Weber grill and ping pong table. She claimed both. I really wanted the ping pong table, but have no place to put it and use it. She has six children. But, she could not get the grill and table home!
Since I had the empty unit, I allowed her to store both until she could get them home. So, she rolled them both to the unit. Both had wheels, and the ping pong table was the type that folded in the middle. The table above, $400, is similar to what she received. The net is missing.
The person she called had a truck so wide that the table easily lay in the bed. He lives next door to her mother, so he took it and put it in her basement. I had taken the folding camo camp chair. However, it must have had charcoal dust all over it. When I saw the mess in my trunk, I gave the guy the chair, too.
Along with the grill was the charcoal starter. That is $24.99 online and at Lowe's. Every time I make the above picture smaller, it disappears!
We had a good day! This was all lightly used, over $600 worth including tax. Remember, this is where I got the free red table last year.
