Upright Freezer For Sale

7 Sep

Beautiful upright countertop-depth freezer for sale by its original owner. Pearl white, four shelves, three-pronged electrical outlet, lovingly maintained and cared for.

It is 48 inches tall by 24 inches wide by 24 inches deep and in perfect working condition.

Purchased from the Sears on Cyrville Rd on a warm summer day in 2004 when I needed to keep cold some delicious ice-cream I was storing for delivery to the orphanage.

The decision to part ways did not come lightly – we had some good times with Big White. I remember our annual Christmas party in 2005 when he stepped up and cooled down in record time the giant baked alaska Jennifer had borrowed from her work the previous evening. In winter we would normally just park it outside on the deck but this December was unseasonably warm and the typically docile racoons that inhabit our neighbourhood were quite agitated that year.

And who could forget the Mid-summer party of 2010? Me apparently. From what I can recall it was a bittersweet celebration. And we used Big White to flash-cool two cases of Molson Export that had been sitting for a week in Tim’s garage. Those were good times.

So you’re probably wondering why I’m selling such an awesome freezer and this is a legitimate question. I once bought a mattress online and the previous owner failed to disclose that he’d been using as a bed for his miniature horse. I drove thirty-five miles for what I thought was a great deal only to return home mattressless.

Anyway, I live in a house with five people and we used to all share one regular-sized side-by-side fridge but the freezer compartment was not big enough so I purchased Big White to store our surplus frozen goods that would not fit in the main one.

Well, two years ago I purchased and installed in my kitchen and dining room five refrigerators that each have their own freezer. With all this extra freezer space, Big White is no longer needed. Sadly, for the past two years he’s been sitting in the laundry room, quietly caring for a single bag of frozen peas that someone has long since forgotten.

So it is time for us to part ways. I have access to a pickup truck so if you want it delivered tell me where you live and I will let you know how much extra it will be.

      Actually it’s from 2007 – I just checked my records. And I’m guessing you don’t want it. It’s a lovely appliance. Countertop depth. I know how much you love countertop depth.
