I wish I could say that surprised me, but the only really surprising part is that they aren't trying to tell it for $40 on Craigslist.

People are always offering and asking for seats on our freecycle. It makes me sick, but they aren't on our list of forbidden items.

Ugh I hate that. We have a thrift store that sells seats older than I am(I'm 26):/ they won't pull them. In fact dd's therapist told me to go buy one to use in the house for propping her in sitting position... I declined lol.

Wow! All of our second hand stores are fobidden to sell used car seats. I guess here it is illegal. You can give them away, but not sell them in Maine. I see people selling them all over CL and mom swap groups, so I must be one of the few who knows this rule.

I agree. I am part of the Freecycle in my area and indeed this is one of the rules.

Wow, at least they are not selling it lol

People are always requesting carseats in my local FC group too and I always email them with info on carseat safety, what's safest for each child, and the telephone number to a local agency that gives out free ones for a small donation if they really can't afford it. I have yet to receive a nasty email.
