Free: Mighty Oven Cleaner (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Liquid oven cleaner - might be just the thing if you're looking to blitz your oven after Christmas! The bottle has been opened and partially used, but there's still about three-quarters left. The plastic bags for your racks and grills are unopened and as new. I tried to take a good photo of the instructions written on the bottle.

Free: Framed Lioness and Cub Photo (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Lovely photo of a lioness and her cub, seemingly taken at night. I tried to get some good pictures without getting reflections on the glass. Wooden frame with gold-coloured inlay. Medium-sized, maybe about 30cm or so (I can measure if interested). Has a loop on the back for hanging.

Free: Framed Lion Picture (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Quite small (about 20/25cm long, I can measure if anyone's interested). No glass in the frame which makes it very light, great if your wall isn't very strong! Has a hoop on the back for hanging.

Free: Tea set, 4 cups and teapot (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Four teacups (I only took two out of the cupboard for the photo but the other two are identical) with a delicate blue flower pattern and a matching teapot. Good clean condition, just a bit dusty due to sitting unused in the cupboard for years. I thought someone could put them to better use.

Free: Black Cotton Fitted Sheets, Double (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Three black fitted sheets for a standard double bed. 100% cotton. Good condition, one I think was only used once - they were for a mattress that's much deeper than standard, so were swapped for deeper sheets. Or with Hallowe'en coming up maybe they could be used as tablecloths for a party, or perhaps used to make a costume. Have one or have all three. They're clean, they've been sat folded on a shelf for a while so just a bit creased! From a smoke-free home.

Free: Rosemary Branches (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Expired - I'm going to trim my rosemary plant and will have more than I can use. It'll be a shame for it to go to waste, so if anyone wants some I can cut some fresh and put it outside for you to collect. You also can dry it and store it for winter (I've done this but there'll be too much for me to use), or if you fancy your own plant you can try propagating one from a cutting.

Free: Glossy White and Blue Mug (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Expired - I've tried to take a photo of the blue design on the front. The mug is textured a bit like a barrel or cask. Good clean condition.

Free: Small Stainless Steel Chain (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Expired - From a keychain where the clip broke off - the chain itself is pretty strong and sturdy. It's about 25cm long and the links are maybe 1cm wide. Thought someone might find a use for it in crafts or DIY. I can take a photo and more accurate measurements if anyone's interested. Free: Glass bottle garden tea lights (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Blueish glass bottles that lift off the metal base so you can put a tealight in. They have chains attached to the base with a hook so you can hang them if you want. Sorry for the bad picture, whenever I wanted to take a photo of them it's been raining! The glass is smooth, not bobbly - that's just the raindrops. There's a bit of rust on the metal bits as they've been outside since last year, but the glass is in good condition and once lit you won't notice if the metal's less than perfect. Hopefully we'll get enough nice sunny days that someone can enjoy them while sitting outside.

Free: Set of Six Small Drinking Glasses (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - I didn't bother to pull them all out of the cupboard but there are six glasses in this set, all identical and in great condition - we rarely use them. They're not full-sized glasses, maybe 100-150ml. They'd be good for shots with plenty of ice, or a small drink of fruit juice.

Free: Memory Foam Pillow (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Old but still in good condition. Has a removable, washable case but has been used with pillow protector and pillowcase. Quite heavy and dense so gives good support. From a smoke-free home.

Free: Pillows (Saint Thomas Ward EX2) Gifted - Three regular pillows, older but good clean condition. Washable as the label states. Three available, you're welcome to as many or few as you like. Great for spares if you have guests, or extra pillows for snuggling on the sofa, or for someone who's just moved and doesn't have any pillows yet. They also make great pet beds! We used to have a pillow on the floor by the radiator for the cat, with a nice velvet fabric wrapped over the pillowcase, which made a cheap and comfy bed that also looked good and not like someone had just randomly dropped a pillow :) Would be suitable for small dogs, too, or you could put them in a larger dog's basket or crate. From a smoke-free home.

Free: Embroidered Blanket/Throw (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - Black, slightly shiny fabric with a wavy texture sewn into it. Silver/gold decorative embroidery (it's not bright enough for silver but too light for gold, so a bit in the middle) on one side, plain black on the other. Polyester and cotton, machine washable. Not sure of exact size but it's fairly big, about 150cm-200cm but I can measure if necessary. Might make a nice decorative bed spread or to keep on the sofa. Clean and in good condition, and you can easily wash it too.

Free: Small mirror (St Thomas EX2) Expired - Fairly old with a few marks towards the edge of the mirror's surface. It's small and lightweight. It has a peach plastic frame, a support at the back (like a photo frame) so it can be stood on a surface, and a hole to hook over a screw to mount it to the wall. It's hard to photograph a reflective surface but I got a few photos. It might be good as a craft project to decorate the frame, or to put in the garden or in a dark corner to reflect some light back onto your plants!

Free: Hill's Science Plan Cat Food Measuring Cup (St Thomas EX2) Expired - Obviously you can use this plastic cup for whatever you want, but if you have a cat who eats Hill's Science Plan food then this cup would be perfect. All around the side it has different columns for different types of food, with markings to help you measure the correct amount.

Free: Braun Epilator Shaver, Partly-Working (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - This is a cordless, rechargeable Braun wet-and-dry epilator and shaver for legs, underarms etc, which means you can use it in the bath or shower with warm water as well as on dry skin. The epilator bit of this has just stopped working - that's the bit with all the rotating tweezer-things that pluck the hair out. There's power going to it, it just doesn't rotate and seems like it's catching on itself instead of rotating freely. I always clean it, but it's a few years old so I guess it's not surprising it's started to fail. Someone good at that sort of thing might be able to fix it. However, the rest is in good working order. As well as the epilator head there's a shaver head which is barely used and is almost like new so it might be useful for someone who just wants an electric razor. Or if you have the same make you might want any spare parts, such as an extra charger or the different plastic caps or the cleaning brush. It comes with a little bag to contain it all. There's also the instruction manual.

Free: Hallowe'en Items (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - A bundle of Hallowe'en decorations: two pieces of orange-and-black pumpkin tinsel, each about 170cm long (5' or 6' roughly). Plastic "Beware of Zombies" caution tape - not sticky tape, the sort you use to cordon off an area - pretty long, about 5m/16'. An inflatable pumpkin, still in its packaging. An orange-and-black ceiling decoration with spiders, also still in its packaging.

Request: Wood Filler (St Thomas EX2) Expired - Anyone have any left over wood filler? The stuff you use to fill in cracks and gaps in wood and then sand/paint. I just need a little bit so it seems a waste to buy a big container which mostly won't get used. Free: Baby spider plants (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - I have some little spider plants if anyone wants them. The pound coin in the picture is just for scale! There are two plants left.

Free: Filling for Bean Bags (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - Someone on here very kindly gave me a large outdoor beanbag for me to use the filling (the beanbag cover itself is old and worn). I've used it to fill a beanbag footstool and there is still a lot left, so if anyone wants it you're welcome to it! You could probably get about 4 small (50l) bin bags of filling, or a couple of large bin bags, out of it. Free: Small mirror (St Thomas EX2) Expired - Fairly old with a few marks towards the edge of the mirror's surface. It's small and lightweight.

Free: Large Rat/Small Bird Cage (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - I think this was originally intended as a bird cage for small birds, but it's been used as a rat cage in the past. The bars might be a bit too wide to contain mice, and Syrian hamsters wouldn't be agile enough to use both levels. Not sure if it might be suitable for something like gerbils! Decades ago it was my sister's before she gave it to me for my rats, so it's had a lot of use and stood up well. It's been cleaned and then sat out in the shed for about ten years now, empty and gathering dust - if anyone's interested in it I'll give it another clean to remove the dust and cobwebs! The measurements are approximately 88cm/34" long, 82cm/32" high and 30cm/12" wide/deep. The top makes a perfect shelf for storing ratty supplies, or books, ornaments, plants etc, and because of its shape the cage can be tucked against a wall and be less intrusive. Having a solid back and side walls helps minimise bits of food and bedding that inevitably get scattered. The top lifts off the bottom to make transport easier. I tried to get good photos but there wasn't a lot of room in the shed to get a good angle! It's perfect for rats as it's tall and over two levels, so they have a lot of vertical space. You can use a ladder for them to climb from the lower level to the upper, or just a sturdy stick/branch which is what I've always used. There are a couple of branches in there which are clean (except the dust!) and have been unused for literally years, or you can use new ones. There are also an assortment of ladders if you want them, which would be too short for this cage but could be useful in another. I've used this cage in the past attached to another cage, to make a large super-cage. There are plenty of openings if you wanted to make a similar set up. There are four "sliding doors" as the main openings, measuring about 10cm/4" high and 14cm/5½" wide. There are other smaller doors which open on springy hinges, most of which are fastened shut with cable ties so they can't be pushed open if you're not using them to join another cage. There are four main areas, two on each level. The top has a wire floor with a large hole in it to get up and down, and the other half has a solid floor. The bottom is all solid floor. Both the top and bottom have a narrow gap between the bars running from top to bottom so you can insert a divider if you like - I think originally it came with metal dividers, but in the past I've just used pieces of cardboard to make separate "rooms" for them - particularly good for the top bit to make a sleeping nest. The solid floors are actually metal trays with a clear plastic insert, resting on a wire floor. The idea is they're easy to clean by lifting the flap at the front and sliding the tray out, without having to put the rats in another cage (but it's easier to let them out to play or sit on your shoulder while you do it anyway). I've used junk mail and newspaper under and over the plastic inserts to try to keep the metal trays protected, as they have some rust around the corners (I tried to show it in the photos). The back walls of the cage also have some patterns painted with what I think is nail varnish - decorations for the rats perhaps?! Anyway it's never bothered the numerous rats who've lived there over the years, but you could use nail varnish remover if you wanted to get rid of it. There are some food/water containers which sit on the bars, making it less likely for food bowls to be knocked over. There's also a large water bottle if wanted.

Free: Blue Document/Paper Bag (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - Blue fabric, has a briefcase-style carry-handle on the top. The front flap unclips and lifts up and then there are two zipped compartments for documents, laptop, tablet etc. I tried to photograph inside them but it didn't come out very well. There's also a bit on the front for holding pens. It comes with an A4 size blue plastic "envelope" for papers.

Free: Cow Print Lap Tray (Broken Frame) (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - The lap tray part is fine, with the bean-bag cushioning under the tray's surface intact, but the wooden frame is coming away from the sides. I've tried to show it in the photo. I thought it worth offering in case anyone wants to have a go at fixing it, or just using it as is. Could be used as part of a craft project maybe?

Free: Black Cotton/Canvas Apron (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - It says BBQ on it but you could use it for painting, crafts, gardening etc. It has a handy pouch pocket on the front. I can take measurements if necessary but it seems a standard size. Where it's been folded on a shelf there's a bit of dust on one section but I can give it a wash before pick-up if anyone's interested in it!

Free: Plasti-kote Grey Stone-Effect Spray Paint (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - You use this like normal spray paint, but instead of a plain colour it sprays a textured paint that dries to give the effect of stone. It's an old can but is still full (I don't think it's even been used).

Free: Ancient Egyptian-Style Painting (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - This in in a frame with a small piece broken out of the glass (see photo), but it can be easily reframed - I've left it in the frame for now to protect it. It's painted on a linen-style cloth so quite unusual. It's about A4 size, maybe a bit bigger. I can check measurements if necessary.

Free: Large Painting, Wintery Trees (St Thomas EX2) Gifted - Painted on a fairly solid chipboard-type canvas. It's been sat in an attic for years so isn't in pristine condition, but someone might like it to brighten things up! Or even paint over it with their own creation! It has a picture wire attached to the back for hanging. It's quite large, maybe 2 or 3 foot long (I can measure if necessary).
