Do you have gently used playmobil sets that your child has outgrown? I'm looking to buy or adopt some toys for my son's Christmas presents. They don't need to be full sets, but any big playmobil items (castles, ships, pyramids, cowboy ranch, etc.) with some of the figures and parts would be great. Please contact Kristin Agudelo at 207-450-9698 or firstname.lastname@example.org. But because it's for Christmas, please don't talk to me about it on the playground in earshot of Santiago! (10/30)
Milkweed Farm Pasture Raised Thanksgiving Turkeys: It's time to order your Thanksgiving turkey. Our turkeys are $4 per pound, plus an $8 slaughter fee. They are the most delicious, healthy birds you can find. They are raised on green pasture and have been wandering around our farm eating grass, herbs, and bugs all summer and fall. If you would like to order a turkey we ask for a $25 deposit, and the size you are hoping for. Our turkeys generally run from 10-24 pounds. If you want a 15 pound bird, we would suggest you ask for a 14-16 pound range. We do our best to get everyone a bird in their ideal range. You can call or email Lucretia Woodruff (725-4554, email@example.com) if you have questions. You can send a check, made out to Milkweed Farm, 63 Gott Lane, Brunswick, ME 04011 (10/30)
