Will trade Legos for something equally interesting
Someone in Northborough is willing to part with 30 pounds of Legos, a Radio Flyer brand Tailspin bike, and a glass coffee table with gold trim. That is if you're ready to barter, and you've got some "interesting or collectible stuff."
Oh, and it should be mentioned you'll need to pose nude and have fairy-like qualities
A professional photographer in Westborough working at the Rhode Island School of Design has been an established illustrator for 20 years. Right now, the photographer is working on a calendar that is "outside the box as far as design goes." For it, a female model is needed to pose to use as a reference for illustration. "We are looking for models that have fairy like qualities since the calendar will involve illustrations of fairies. The calendar itself will be artistically tasteful though we are planning on deisgning it so it is provocative."
When making furniture forts isn't enough for the kids
For just over $3,500, you can pick up a complete indoor playground that is "great for parties" from a seller in Shrewsbury. It's perfect for that family who doesn't know what to do with their second living room.
Home Depot, where home improvement ... and romances ... are born
Hey Kathy, the clerk at Home Depot in Shrewsbury: you've got an admirer. He simply says, "Kathy, You are stunning, I remember you from the spring time. I find you incredibly irresistable."
Running on Dunkin'
This week, just before 11 a.m., a customer ordered a vanilla chai with whipped cream, an orange juice and a blueberry muffin from Dunkin' Donuts in Framingham. Well, Amanda, you really caught his eye from the register. Your admirer write, "I doubt you might not remember because it was busy. I was wearing a hooding."
Did you leave your cleats at the Honey Dew?
If you're missing a pair of men's sports shoes, and cleats, and you've been to the Honey Dew in Milford recently, someone's got your shoes and is holding them for you.
This life-sized (fake) pony "loves to be groomed and cared for"
And the best part is, Butterscotch Pony can stay right in the house. No barn needed. This Natick person is ready to part with this plush pony that has many features to that of a real pony, including moving eyes, ears and head, a soft fur coat and a swishing tail. "Through sensors, Butterscotch can feel when she is being groomed and will move her head toward you, and may whinny and snort." The more you touch her, the happier she becomes. Just like a real pony, Butterscotch loves carrots and can be 'fed.' Hold the pretend carrot to her face, and she will open her mouth for it, or shake her head 'no' if she has had enough." So where do the carrots come out? This pony, for $75, comes with a bridle, brush, carrot and D batteries. It is unclear if Butterscotch gives rides.
Pull those old records off the shelf
The record dealer at the Grafton Flea Market is announcing that he's got more than 5,000 records, hundreds of them "highly collectible." A new collection of '70s and '80s selections just arrived, too. The Grafton Flea Market is open Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located on Route 140 at the Upton-Grafton town line.
Flag football refs needed
Refs are needed for a local youth flag football league that plays in Framingham on Saturday mornings and Marlborough on Sunday mornings. This league starts this weekend, and refs are needed to take care of two to three games in a row.
