Request: New swapping group in baldock (Baldock) Received - Hi all, I’ve set up a new swapping face book group for baldock called ‘baldock swap shop’. It’s a bit different from free cycle in that it’s supposed to be for things like toys and clothes. It’s based on honesty, in that if you request something then you post something to give to another person. It should be kind of the same value eg a joules dress taken = a yummy dress listed. Or a bike given away = a trike etc.It’s hard to value things but I have found people are very honest so will self moderate. Welcome everyone 🙂 this is a closed group for people to swap/ share things they no longer need with each other. I set this group up for several reasons: 1 a to try and do my bit to reduce the amount of unwanted and unused toys going into landfill each year 2- toys, clothes and house stuff costs us a lot of money - let’s keep some of it in our pockets away from big companies. Let’s just exchange things, let’s not spend any more money 3 - to take the stigma out of giving each other second hand gifts. 4 - to reduce, reuse, recycle, rethink This is an experiment so anyone who wants to help with the admin or how this page works is more than welcome :) Offer: Plastic cover for iPhone 8 (Baldock) - Transparent iPhone 8 case for the back, does not protect the glass
