Offer: Architectural decorations (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - An assortment of decorative bits-and-bobs that might be used on a period property.

Additionally two lengths of similar fencing which has a different pattern and seems to be made of plastic-coated wire.
Offer: King size duvet cover (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Withdrawn - This is a king size duvet cover made from thick cream coloured material with a delicate white pattern. Unusually, the duvet is inserted into the middle of the cover rather than at one end, then there's a row of large buttons to close the opening. Note that no sheets or pillowcases are included.
Offer: Moving/packing boxes (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) - Loads of thick cardboard moving/packing boxes. Used, and now flat-packed for storage, these are in good condition but have some sticky tape and writing on them. There's a mixture of medium and large boxes, plus a few wardrobe hanging boxes. Offer: 400 gallon domestic fuel oil tank (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - We are no longer using oil for our central heating, so our 400 gallon/1800 litre fuel oil tank is redundant. It has been disconnected and contains some unused fuel (but not much!). Moving it will require several people and a good-sized van or flat-bed truck. If you need exact dimensions then let me know. Offer: Curtains (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - Two large (227cm x 227cm approx, before pleating) and two small (165cm wide x 100cm high approx, before pleating) curtains, all in the same beige-grey colour with a large white design that's a bit like a fleur-de-lys.
Offer: Door pediments or bed headboards? (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - 8 plain new door pediments made (I think) from MDF. 2 elaborate wooden pieces that were in the same pile - I think they might actually be headboards for single beds but they're about the same size as the pediments so could be used as such!

Offer: Model owls - intended as bird scarers (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - Two model owls, each around 16" or 40cm tall, that are designed to be placed in a garden for scaring away birds. Their heads are loosely connected by springs to their bodies, so that they turn in the wind and give the impression of movement.
Offer: Electric hedge trimmer (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - A Black & Decker GT220 (40cm/16in) corded electric hedge trimmer, believed to be in working order.
Offer: Golf clubs (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - A set of golf clubs, plus a trolley (but no bag). I know nothing about golf so don't know whether these constitute a complete set, or whether they're still in usable condition - but maybe they'll help someone who wants to start dabbling in the sport?

Offer: Air fresheners (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - An array of cans of air freshener, plus some other cleaning products. A couple are partly used, but they're generally brand new.

Offer: Folding picnic table (Bryn-y-cochin SY12) Gifted - A picnic table and chairs in a suitcase! The case (measuring approximately 92x12x38cm) opens and folds out to form a picnic table with four bench seats (approximately 92x151x70cm in total). It's a little rusty, and a bit heavy so you wouldn't want to carry it far, but very clever and useful - perhaps to campers.
