Seeking loan: set of weights, toaster oven

I am temporarily living in Cuenca (until mid-October) and am looking to supplement the items in the apartment I am renting with a set of weights (any range of weight will work, I can modify exercises to make do) and a toaster oven.

Due to my limited time here, I do not think buying these items would be cost-effective. If you happen to have a set of weights, or a toaster oven sitting around not getting much use, and would be interested to loan (perhaps we could arrange a "rental fee" to make it worth your while), please contact me. Of course I would pick up and return at your house, at your convenience.
