A few years ago my brother inlaw gave us a 26" console tv, it's more than twenty years old but does work just fine. We had it in an apartment we rent in our home, and let the tenant use if for almost five years. He moved and we decided to take it out when we cleaned the place up for the next renter.
I put a sign on the tv and placed it at the end of my driveway, "Free, Works Great". Well, that was three days ago and it's still there. I know flat screens are the rage, but doesn't anyone just really need a nice color tv that works and wouldn't cost a dime?
I told a neighbor that I was going to add a VHS player/recorder to sweeten the deal and he said no one wants them either!
