Dorm People: Need a Carpet?

Hey, i lived in the dorms last year, in Haggett. Well since there was no carpet, i bought some rugs. Now i have an apartment and no use for them. I have a 5x8 forest greet one, i would sell it for 20 bucks and three 2x4 (i believe, but can double check) ones that are cream, light green and beige (?) stripped that are 5 bucks each. It helped a ton with dust and allergies and added some color. They are in good condition, no stains. They are at my parents house in Redmond, so i can find a way to get them to you. If anyone is interested, let me know. You can post here, or send an e-mail to cera78@u.washington.edu.
