Description

This is broken into segments to encourage reading and to save time.

Asking questions that are answered in the ad will be ignored (e.g. Will you save this or hold this for me? – NO).

WHAT IS FREE?
This is a set of (1) Bar-height Table with (2) Bar-height Chairs, which are modern looking and great for the sun as they won’t burn you even in direct sun in Texas in August, rust-proof, intended for outdoor use, safe for use near water, safe for salty sea air, made of anodized brushed aluminum, and has a thin layer of Saharan dust and Texas cedar pollen which you may want to wipe off before using the set. Dimensions / Measurements are at the bottom of this listing.

WHEN CAN I PICK UP?
The free items will first be available for pick up and will go to the first person here who calls to let me know that they have arrived… just as long as they can take it all away in one haul:
Friday, August 5th, 3 pm – 8 pm

WILL YOU SAVE / HOLD THESE FOR ME, SO I AM SURE TO GET THESE?
No, we won’t save or hold anything.
No, we won’t save or hold anything.
No, we won’t save or hold anything.

WHERE TO MEET UP:
Please meet with the van/s and/or trucks you plan to haul these items away with… at the parking lot of El Alma Cafe y Cantina: 1025 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704

SHOULD I HARASS PEOPLE AT THE RESTAURANT?
Don’t be a turd to the folks at El Alma Cafe y Cantina; they don’t know anything about this posting. The parking lot was selected as a convenient safe location.

WHY ARE THESE FREE?
We are done pretending we will ever want to be outside in Texas, as we hate the pollens and the Saharan dust and the sun is horrible even in the winter; this patio set remind us of our former optimism which has long since died.

HERE ARE RULES THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, SET BY ME, THE MEAN TERRIBLE PERSON WHO IS GIVING AWAY FREE SH*T ON CRAIGSLIST, RATHER THAN SELLING IT πŸ™‚
We will not hold / save these for you.
We will not hold / save these for you.
We will not hold / save these for you.
The first person who arrives and then after arriving contacts me at the phone number below gets to take it all away in one haul (only if they can take it in one haul).
Take it all in one trip or take nothing (no multi-trips, so measure the van/truck ahead of time and add up the measurements below to be sure it all fits).

HOW DO I KNOW IF THESE ARE STILL AVAILABLE?
As soon as these items are gone, I will delete the post within 3 minutes of these being picked up. If you hit refresh on your phone when looking at the posting and the posting is still up, then it’s either still here or I’m walking back to my phone to delete the posting because the patio set was given away in the last 3 minutes.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO GET THESE?
Pull up this posting on your phone and hit refresh; if you can still see this posting, then as of 3 minutes ago, it’s still available.
During the appointed time (Friday, August 5th, 3 pm – 8 pm) arrive at the location (1025 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704) with a vehicle or vehicles that can move the patio set in only one trip.
You then call the number on this posting; it’s fine to call if you are within a block as we waive at you, so you find us sooner (we’re likely going to have to drive a block or two back to you, so that we aren’t loitering).
The free stuffs handoff happens.
We immediately pull down the posting within 3 minutes of these getting picked up.
We all have a better weekend.

WHAT ABOUT A TIE, WHEN MULTIPLE PEOPLE CAMPED OUT OR ARRIVED AT THE SAME TIME, SO WE DON’T KNOW WHO GOT HERE FIRST?
If folks are already lined up or if more than one person arrives at the exact same time and contacts me at the same time, we have a plan that doesn’t involve arm wrestling (I have a quarter… first we’ll do three sets of rock paper scissors and that winner then gets to call either heads or tails on a coin toss with my quarter, which will be tossed to the pavement so it can’t be rigged… and that coin toss winner gets the goods).
