We would like to open up a gemach leilu our father.
We need ideas for types of gemachim.
(But not ones which use a lot of storage space)
There are so many which already exists, so we are looking for some new suggestions.

Baby headphones for weddings
Kids scooter for broken foot (I bought on amazon when my daughter hurt her foot I couldn't find ANY gemach that had)
Old magazines ppl can borrow
Blow up mattresses (I have 5 and they are always out but not official gemach)
I also have 7 black velvet tablecloths...not official gemach but ppl always borrow
Big crockpot and hot water urns for simchas

do you live in Lakewood?
If you don't there's a huge gemach list that might give you some ideas!!!
Even if you do, Lakewood now became so big that you might want to open a gemach that already exist but not in your neighborhood!

Spare diaper gemach? Someone just ran out of a size, or it's Shabbat and they can't go get -- so they can take a few from you. Gemach is restocked by donations of half-packages people outgrew

What can you offer? Time, money? I think we need more services for overwhelmed mothers for whatever reason.
