I think it's European sized, measures 195cm long approx. Can arrange contactless collection. From a smoke free, pet free home. Offer: Adirondack Rocking Chair, in need of TLC (Clerwood EH12) - RESTORATION PROJECT - I have an Adirondack rocking chair and footstool, that with a bit of TLC, could be restored to look like new. The chair needs one new spar on the seat at the front, and the footstool needs 3 new top spars - not too tricky if you have some basic woodwork skills. Apart from that, the chair and stool are completely sound, and just need a really good rub-down and paint. Please see photos for an indication of condition. Recipient needs to be able to collect (Corstorphine). Thanks for looking.

Offer: Hair Dryer (The Mound EH2) - Mark Hill Salon Professional Hairdryer (no diffuser or nozzle) Only used a few times before I went back to my lazy towel-drying ways. Variable heat and speed settings: 5 airflow x 5 heat combinations with cold shot blast. I have lost the diffuser and nozzle that it came with, so it's just the dryer. No box, no instructions, but the product page has instructions here. Just to emphasize: it's just the dryer: no concentrator nozzle, no diffuser. I wouldn't want anyone to be disappointed. It's in a bag for life. Contactless collection, to be picked up from the stair, to be arranged - city centre area
Offer: NUTRiBULLET Magic Bullet blender/mixer (The Mound EH2) - Used for a short period around 4 years ago to make healthy smoothies and has been sitting on a shelf ever since. Tested and working. Consists of what is in the photos: the base, one tall cup, two short cups (one with handle), two lids, one lip ring with handle, one cross blade (aka extractor blade), one flat blade (aka milling blade), one user guide & recipe book. I don't have any other accessories. Please note the user guide and recipe book has been water damaged in the past in the top right corner - see detailed photo - but is still readable and is usable with some care when you open pages that were stuck together when it got wet. Alternatively, you could download a copy - this looks like the same book: There is no box, so it is in two "bags for life". Contactless collection from the stair to be arranged - city centre area
