Whenever the volume of "classified ads" posts picks up here, I wade in
to remind people that they might also want to post stuff at
potterbarter, a yahoo group I moderate.

It is a low volume list, maybe one post a week, but it has over 1000
members and not all of them are clayarters. No conversation,
offers/wanteds only, and all transactions take place off list. I have
seen a lot of studio equipment sold, traded and outright given away on
this list in the last couple of years.

Consider, too, whether you have something lying around your studio that
you'd like to "freecycle" and pass on to any potter willing to come and
haul it away. Post at potterbarter, there are members from all over the
country.

If you already have a yahoo account it's at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/potterbarter -- go sign up.

If you want to push a button to sign up, there's one on my website,
http://www.primalpotter.com -- remember to click "NO" when they ask
whether you want 'special offers' (spam.)

Yours
Kelly Savino in Ohio

Thanks for reminding us--I've just joined! I didn't realize how many
members you had or that they were from all over.

I just recently joined a freecycle group and I am IN LOVE. People come and
get my junk--er, unwanted surplus--and I'm loving it. I've sold on eBay for
years, and still do, and we have a local thrift store that gets a lot of my
stuff, but freecycle has been a godsend about things I don't know what to do
with or don't want to try to ship!

I have quite a few extra tools that I got when I was starting out with
pottery that I find I don't use--we all settle on our favorites over time,
so Ill definitely be using your list too.

Maybe I can find that little test kiln someplace close enough to deal with,
too...

Best--

Thank you Kate. I just joined (correctly I think). Great group.
