The highest priority of things that have to go, as they take a lot of

People in Europe, nearby to the Netherlands, are welcome to come by, I

I also don't need a fortune for some of these things.  A fair price will

own pocket, very little was ever given to me for free... and none of the 
above was.)

Thanks for your possible interest.
