Kensington-Windsor Terrace Classifieds - Buy, Sell, Trade, Borrow, Request Donations of, and Give Away Goods

May 7, 2020

Dear KWT Classifieds Members,

During this period of social isolation, your moderators' thoughts have been for the safety of our families and you, our neighbors. But we also acknowledge that with so many people on KWT Classifieds earning a living through part-time or contract work, money might be tight. People might not feel safe about going into stores yet. Some goods are not readily available at the moment.

For those reasons, we are reopening KWT Classifieds. But we do ask that exchanges be limited to an as-needed basis.

If you do need to use KWT Classifieds, we do want to be mindful and remind others to have thoughtful exchanges during this time.

  • Take appropriate preventive hygiene methods to minimize the potential risk of infection.
  • If you are feeling unwell, cancel your meet-ups with potential buyers or sellers.
  • Keep your children away from any exchanges you make.
  • Minimize contact. Keep a recommended distance of six feet apart when you are making an exchange.
  • Wear a mask.
  • Disinfect the items you are going to sell as well as those that you buy from others.
  • If you are tested and you have COVID-19, please inform anyone who you have had contact with, including people you have had exchanges with on KWT Classifieds.

Here is a link to the CDC’s page “How to Protect Yourself."

Wishing you good health,
The Moderators


Kensington and Windsor Terrace residents can buy, sell, trade, borrow, request donations of, and give away merchandise/goods/items on KWT Classifieds. E-mail about buying, selling, trading, borrowing, requesting donations of, and giving away merchandise/goods/items cannot be posted on KWTneighbors, with the exception of stoop sales, sidewalk sales, and garage sales, which can be posted on both lists.

KWT Classifieds is for Kensington and Windsor Terrace residents only. If you live outside of Kensington or Windsor Terrace, you cannot post on KWT Classifieds.

Businesses are not permitted to promote, sell, or market their goods.
If you are selling items that you make, you are offering a service. Post your ad on KWTneighbors instead of on KWT Classifieds. When you post the ad on KWTneighbors, write "[CP]" at the beginning of the subject line. "CP" means "Commercial Post" and indicates that a product or service is being advertised.

Please sign your e-mail so that your neighbors know who they are communicating with.
Unsigned e-mail and e-mail that's only signed with a signature block won't be posted. Sign with your first name, your nickname, or however you like people to address you. If your signature includes information about your or your employer's business that's relevant to your post, please limit it to two or three short lines below your name.

Use common safety sense when setting up a transaction. 

Be respectful: if you claim an item, show up. If you promise an item, hold it for the person, as agreed.

Do not post on KWT Classifieds about house, apartment, or commercial rentals, sales, sublets, etc.; babysitters, contractors, roommates, nannies, tutors, or other persons or companies; services you are in search of or services you provide; lost or found cats, dogs, or other animals; job searches; job offers; swapping food co-op shifts; lost items; found items; etc., etc., etc. Most of those topics can be posted on KWTneighbors.

Posts that do not follow the rules of KWT Classifieds will be deleted from the archives and the member's future e-mails will be moderated. If the member sends another post that does not follow the rules, the member may get blocked.
