    For getting rid of nice old clothes, I like 
Decades of Fashion on Haight Street a little 
over a block this side of Stanyon. 
    Seems like you might be able to use this 
ActiveSpace rental for storage, yes? I've got a 
little truck (honda element) and I'd be willing 
to help you cart your stuff from where it is to 
some other place. 
    Would there be enough space in the ActiveSpace 
joint to allow others to share storage?
