Simple refinishing project? I have a toy wooden castle (with working drawbridge) from Island Treasure Toys, complete with King & Queen, Knight & horse. Originally paid $200 for it about 10 years ago. Still in great structural shape; unforunately it was defaced many years ago by a little girl with a wayward marker. I'd love to sell it at a deep discount to someone who's interested in sprucing it up for his/her own child(ren). Call Beth at 871-1087 if this sounds like you. Best offer. (09/13)

After school sitter needed: After two blissful years with a wonderful sitter, ours is heading back to college and I need to find her replacement. I am looking for someone who can watch my two girls ages 6&9 2-3 afternoons a week for an hour or an hour and a half and who would be willing to stay late (10 or so) generally one night every two weeks. My schedule does vary some, so the ideal person would have some flexibility .....willingness to stay late a few nights in a row on occasion or come early every once in a while to help get the kids off to school. Additional hours during vacations and summer negotiable. Care would be provided in our Freeport home starting when the girls get off the bus at about 3:50. We live ten minutes from Merriconeag. We would love to find someone with ties to the Waldorf community. The ideal candidate would be someone who enjoys being outside and doing creative projects. Reliability is a must. Some local driving will be involved. Please email or call Megan at 318-0961 if interested. Thanks, Megan Shore (09/07)
