Cleanout pt. 1 (the future involves cheese)

Thanks so much to everyone who came to help us reorganize Repo today! We cleared out quite a bit of trash and have about 2/3 of the space reorganized and clean now. If you're looking for a TV, we have 14 now. We also found a toaster, a slide projector tray, dozens of plastic flowerpots, and a small collection of women's shoes...

We are planning to finish the job next weekend and make grilled cheese for everyone who comes by to help!

Hey everyone!

If you haven't notice by now, REPO is getting a little makeover. It's now painted a mint green, and soon will have some light pink stripes (or as some like to call it, a watermelon).

Today I had an issue with unlocking the door, so just as a heads up, it may be locked when it should be open, however, that's getting fixed as soon as possible.

Also, REPO is nice and tidy; someone organized it and swept, and it would be great to keep it that way. So please leave it as clean, if not cleaner than you saw it. Don't just dump things on the floor.

Here are some images from earlier today just to get a feel as to what we have in stock and whatnot. (some of the images are kind of blurry)

We built a new awning

It's kind of pretty.


We had some fun.

8,000 pounds

(this is a crosspost from our announcement mailing list.)

Oh, you pretty things:

As most of you have probably noticed, since the beginning of September we've recorded the weight of "all" things which pass through Repo. This, as well as some other information, is recorded directly to a spreadsheet, which in turn gives us running totals on gross flow vs inbound and outbound.

Yesterday afternoon, Tracy Lee picked up a piece of drywall which put us over the 8,000 lbs (gross) mark.

In celebration, and as a perhaps less-exciting homage to Harper's Index, here are a few charming statistics:

Day in which the most material moved, total in and out:
September 23, 2009, with 1549.7 lbs

Day in which the most material left Repo:
September 25, 2009, with 417 pounds.

Number of days since August 31, 2009 that Repo has not recorded any material flow:

Five lowest non-zero daily totals, in pounds:
0.1, 0.9, 2, 4.5, 6.5

Average flow per day, since August 31, 2009:
133.72 pounds.

Average donation size:
44.35 lbs

Average outbound transaction size:
10.78 lbs

Number of unique entries in the "email address of recipient/donor" column:

For those of you who prefer raw, hard data, our monthly spreadsheets are available (note, of course, that October still has a few days left to go.)

WIth love and a twinkle in the eye,

Multiples and Large Volumes

My special someone,

I just thought you should know about a few things that we have a lot of:

There's a sample bundle of pretty much everything we have pinned to
the wall of Angie's office, across from Turner and next to Moka Joka.
It's primarily nylon, ranging from loose meshes up through some pretty
heavy duty material originally intended to make airbags out of.

Additionally, in non-roll form, we have a pretty amazing mixed jumble
of sheets, things that might have once been clothes, patterned
fabrics, et cetera.

About 200 pounds left of unscented, colored paraffin in sheet form.
Get it while it's cold.

About 30 cases (12 jars per case) of open-top glass jars formerly
home to a slow-burning candle, complete with crucifix embossing.

Over 2 dozen sheets sheets of 1/4" thick glass with steel security mesh
embedded in it, approx 12x12".

51 lengths, about 2' long, most with a dog clip on one end.

Unused toothpaste caps; shower curtain rings in a variety of styles;
retired card catalog cards; empty DVD and CD cases.

Napkin holders and lunch trays. You know the ones. Still plenty to
go around.

About 30, assorted sizes/shapes. See container for details.

Every Wednesday 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.
