IRobot Roomba 695

In great condition, only used a handful of times because my dog is absolutely terrified of it (which is the only reason I’m getting rid of it) Works great on wood, tile, and carpet floors and super convenient- you can even schedule cleanings through the Roomba app! Comes w 2 “virtual walls” which are very handy for if you want to run the vacuum on only part of your home Since I do have a dog, there will invariably be some hitchhiking furs, but I will do my best to clean thoroughly before trade Manufacturer details Use Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to start, stop, or dock the robot (currently only available in English) 3.6” low profile cleans under furniture and navigates around clutter Full suite of intelligent sensors help the robot navigate under and around furniture Edge-Sweeping Brush sweeps wall edges and corners for an all-around clean Patented 3-Stage Cleaning System and Multi-Surface Brushes loosen, lift, and suction dirt to remove dander, dust, and debris Strong suction pulls in dust, dirt, and pet hair from wherever it's hiding Dirt Detect allows the robot to sense dirt and focus cleaning on areas that need it most Cliff Detect sensors prevent the robot from doing a header down the stairs or over a drop-off Lithium ion battery runs up to 1 hour Automatically docks and recharges so you never have to worry about putting it away or it running out of power iAdapt Navigation lets the Roomba avoid stairs and other drop-offs Auto-Adjust Cleaning Head automatically adjusts its height for all floor types including carpet and hard floors to clean all the rooms in your house This Roomba was designed and created using over 25 years of robotics expertise and innovation Please no generic “anything of mine” DMs given high value of this item, but if you leave a like I’ll check your profile

bunz is magic

I wanted to take a minute to pause and reflect on my intense gratitude for this community and the role it has played in my life This year - thanks in large part to the magic of this platform - I was able to make some huge positive changes in my life. In particular, I was able to start life-changing (and very, very costly!) medical treatment that I've long needed but was never able to afford before. Bunz trades have helped me to cover essentials like groceries, clothing, and personal care items (and also for raw materials/packaging supplies to reduce overhead costs for items I make to trade), thus hugely reducing the amount I have to spend on bills, and enabling me to put aside a big enough portion of my paycheque to pay for expensive medical treatments I need, but that aren't covered by insurance or OHIP. Every time one of you trades with me? You're directly supported my ability to live a happy, healthy life. And I'm so, so grateful for that. While I'm focusing on my gratitude for this community, I also want to say it has been BEYOND life changing to see how products I've made, in my own kitchen, with my own two little hands, have given so much happiness, health, and wellness to other people. It will never stop giving me untold levels of warm fuzzies to hear your stories about how things I've made for you have helped alleviate your chronic pain, cheered you up when you were in the throes of the sads, or were a treasured gift to someone special in your life I don't ever take any of it for granted. I'm so grateful for the support of every Bun who has been part of my experience here. And I just wanted to formally say thank you for being part of my journey <3

Dear Bunz,

If you see a maker who creates something you’d like to have for yourself - whether on this platform, etsy, or anywhere else - I implore you, please do not ask them questions like: “How can I make it myself?” “Where can I buy the raw materials for this so I can make it myself?” “Can you give me your recipe?” I make a lot of different types of items, and am on the receiving end of these types of questions on an astonishingly frequent basis. I alternate between feeling like the irl version of these emojis: 🤔🙄😡 when I receive them. I typically just delete these messages and move on with my day. However, I thought it would be useful to put a reference post on my profile to explain why I’m gonna ignore you if you waltz into my inbox with these questions 1. I have spent HUNDREDS of hours sourcing materials and perfecting development of every single item I post. That’s valuable knowledge that I worked really damn hard to acquire, and I’m not just going to give it away 2. On multiple occasions I’ve had bunz contact me asking these questions under the guise that they wanted to DIY, and then several weeks later post copycat items for trade on their profiles which is RUDE and hurts my heart (and on more than one occasion I’ve had other bunz contact me saying they got these copycat items in a trade and they were ineffective or had side effects or whatever, which YIKES) 3. Many of the products I work with can be unsafe if handled improperly, used in the wrong ratio, or you don’t use the exact products I use. I’m skilled at this and know what I’m doing so that both the process and end product are safe. You could misinterpret directions or accidentally use the wrong thing and end up hurting yourself and I’m not having that on my conscience 4. Many of my materials come from vendors who aren’t accessible to the general public, so info about sourcing is of no use to you anyway 5. I’m not going to give you my extra time, for free, to write out instructions and teach you how to make something so that I DONT get compensated for the product in the end I want to make something clear: When you ask makers these types of questions, you are asking them to give away their intellectual property for free. It’s not like just asking your coworker to share the yummy keto salad recipe she found on the internet, or for your BFF to divulge where she bought that cute dress. What it IS like is asking a clothing designer to give you a pattern so you can sew a knockoff, or asking your fav neighbourhood bakery to give you their cookie recipe so you can make them yourself instead of supporting their business. I hope this helps clarify why I don’t/won’t answer these types of inquiries, and why you shouldn’t ask any maker these types of questions. Even if your intent isn’t malicious, it’s still frustrating and inappropriate.
