Offers  and  Requests
Offer: double quilt (Bradford on Avon) - NEW - unused but has been stored badly in the loft and now has a few marks on it. OK if you want to get it dry cleaned OR perfect for dogs bedding or similar. I'd like it gone asap though. Offer: primulas (Bradford on Avon) - They have finished flowering for this year but there are loads of new plants if anyone wants some. Also some ground cover plants with a blue flower. Offer: huge plastic garden pot (Bradford on Avon) - Light brown with a pattern on - it used to have a rose in - 50 cm high and about the same diameter. light but large Offer: dining room table NOT chairs (Bradford on Avon) - I have a large dining room table with an extension piece adding another 46cm of length to the table. The measurements without the extension are 76cms high, 96 cms wide and 180 cms long. It has a patterned section on the top which is in one of the pictures. It originally was bought from M and S in Bath and was delivered to us ready made up. It will go back out again but you would need a van in order to collect it. We have repaired one leg as it is weak - I have tried to show on the photos. This would probably need redoing by someone who knows how to support the joint properly. It fits up to 10 people round it quite easily when extended - we used to have it extended at Christmas for 8 people as it gave us more room. Otherwise, it happily seats 6 or 8 without the extension. The chairs are not included. Please contact me for any further information
