Offer: Nicorette lozenges (Llanbister) - 'Cools' 4mg lozenges 4-packs. Anti-smoking aid (this dosage recommended only for those smoking over 20 a day). Left by a deceased friend who used to use them. Several unopened packs, all well within date. Will consider dividing between early enquirers via Fair Offer policy. Request: Bicycle wheels (Llanbister) - I'm still looking for front and rear alloy - not chromed - 27 inch wheels to help restore an old and interesting racing bike. With or without Derailleur. OK if needs cleaning up. Thank you. Offer: Pedestal Fan (Llanbister) Gifted - Final offer: Unused fan, some parts still in packaging, with instructions. The cross-pieces of the base are missing but one could be improvised. Originals might turn up one day and I'd let you know.

Offer: Under-counter fridge (Llanbister) Expired - Creda fridge, with freezer compartment. Works but probably needs new thermostat (usually quite easy to source and fit) as temperature holds around 4 to 5 degrees C minimum. Struggles when weather is very warm but OK most of time. Acquired as a temporary measure and now I have a new, larger fridge so would like it to go ASAP to a good home rather than for recycling.

Offer: Piano (Llanbister) Gifted - Compact piano, 1930s-ish Ryalls & Jones of Birkenhead. 130cm long x 103cm high. Quite a plain but attractive design. Needs tuning and a couple of hammers repairing. I intended to do some of this myself but not had time, I think the repairs are probably within the scope of a reasonably handy person although you might need to give the tuning to an expert! Can be just about carried by 2 people. I need the space urgently as having to accommodate some family furniture very shortly. Offer: Under-counter fridge (Llanbister) Expired - Ready for collection - Creda fridge, with freezer compartment. Reposting as taker unable to collect. Quite old. Works but probably needs new thermostat (usually quite easy to source and fit) as temperature holds around 4 to 5 degrees C minimum. Struggles when weather is very warm but OK most of time. Acquired as a temporary measure and now I have a new, larger fridge so would like it to go ASAP.

Request: Check your Spam for messages (Llanbister) Received - If you monitor responses to your offers by email, please check your spam/junk folder occasionally as sometimes TrashNothing messages end up there.

Offer: Curtain track (Llanbister) Withdrawn - Swish Sologlyde, 1.75m. In original wrapping. A slight bend might need straightening.

Offer: Air bed (Llanbister) Withdrawn - Single air bed, rubberised fabric type. Unfortunately has a slight leak which I can't locate. It's not the inflating holes as I have reinforced them, might be that the rubber is perishing generally as its quite old. Reluctant to throw away in case someone would like to try repair or even use the material for something. Had to replace with new one as discovered problem while staying away!

Offer: Floodlights (Llanbister) Expired - 1 large 300/500W halogen tube type floodlight with motion sensor - looks more or less new condition 1 small 150W halogen tube type floodlight motion sensor - old and paint flaking, but I think it may still work.

Offer: Aiwa Stereo (Llanbister) Gifted - Last (re)post then it goes to a charity shop or the WEEE skip: Aiwa stereo with tuner, CD and cassette player, speakers.
