    We've done this before and the GDP does it every year, so I think it's time for a Gretsch Talk Free Stuff Thread. Clean out your closets of things you are willing to give away to other G-T members. Usually shipping is paid by the sender with the understanding that the recipient will offer something else for others. However depending on cost & location, it may be appropriate to pay something in return. If you want something, make a post here and PM the person offering the item. Nothing is final until you get a response and it's acknowledged here.

    Here goes:

    Here's a sample (which reportedly was in the SpongeBob movie.)

    I like this idea but....on two occasions I have sent small items for free, asking only for two bucks postage. For the sake of a couple of bucks, these two have abandoned the site since.
    Won't post the names, of course, and I'll pass on this for the moment.

    Cool idea! I'll play - a different license plate up for grabs still in original plastic wrap. I would mail overseas but have absolutely no idea of costs to do that. For mailing cost in the lower 48 U.S., promise me you'll stick at least a fiver in a Salvation Army kettle near you and we'll call it even.

    For what it's worth, someone on Ebay is trying to get big bucks for this one and @drmilktruck 's. :p

    I'd play, but I'm afraid I ain't got nothin' anybody would want :(
    I'm just a poor boy from the Scottish Highlands. I'd say I was from the wrong side of the tracks but we ain't even got a railway where I live. :)
    I do like the idea though, very generous and in the true spirit of Christmas.

    O.K. gang , here's what Santa has for ya ...... I have 3 Donner pedals and 1 Biyang pedal . Please be considerate to others as I really would like to see them go to different homes . If you really want 1-2-3 or 4 pedals , I have no problem with that either . There really not a bad " beginner pedal ". There not the top quality you would expect in some of the big name pedal companies either , but they work , and they weren't expensive either . There just not doing it for me at this time .
    **** Sorry - lower 48 only ****

    Donner Pedals / micro pedals :
    Yellow Fall - Delay Pedal / **** this pedal " pops " sometimes when you turn it on , not always , just annoys me to no end ..... ( yellow pedal )
    Tutti Love Chorus - Corus Pedal ( blue pedal )
    Morpher Distortion - Distortion Pedal ( red pedal )

    Biyang Pedal : about 4" X 5"
    Chorus Pedal - ( chrome / mirrored pedal )
