Offer: Cable Tidy Sleeving (Chippenham SN15) 27d - Looks to be about 3 metres of it.
Offer: Cardboard packaging (Chippenham SN15) 27d - several lengths of right-angled cardboard packaging, can be used for protecting furniture corners if you're moving house or for packaging long items for post. All a minimum of 6 ft long.
Offer: Vintage Brass Colour Curtain Pole (Chippenham SN15) 27d - Vintage 1960s fluted brass effect curtain pole with brackets. 63 inches long including finials, about 56 inches between. Very dusty from attic storage.
Offer: Electricity usage monitor (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 38d - This is designed to monitor your electricity usage if you don't have a smart meter. I no longer have the instructions but I'm sure they'll be online somewhere. Basically you clamp it onto the two fat cables coming out of your mains on/off and connect the clamp to the transmitter unit which takes three AA batteries. You plug the receiver unit (the box with the display) into a convenient mains socket in the house and it will show you your electricity usage.
Offer: Energy-saving Standby Plug (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 38d - I can't remember ever using this. Complete with instructions, uses your normal TV remote to switch the TV off at the mains so it doesn't remain on standby. Instructions say it will work with any remote.
Offer: Light Bulbs (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 57d - A number of energy-saving lightbulbs, all standard bayonet fitting, the majority still boxed and unused. 11 watt and 8 watt Happy to split, please say how many you'd like of which wattage
Offer: Seasonal double-glazing film (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 62d - Two opened packs of seasonal double-glazing film. Several years old but stored indoors in a cupboard, so not dusty or sun-damaged. Not too sure how much is in each but I wouldn't have kept it if the pieces were too small for my windows. There are 4 or 5 reels of tape but this may have gone gummy over the years, I've not checked. Offer: Curtain header tape (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 71d - Two lengths of curtain header tape, each 3 inches wide and 64 inches long. Has been used but washed and pressed.
Offer: Yellow Iris rhizomes (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 74d - I've divided a yellow iris that had outgrown its pot (pic is from before I split it). Several separate pieces with soil attached, some will need a bucket to themselves, others much smaller. Something for everyone!
Offer: Shower Caddy (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 76d - telescopic full-height (floor to ceiling) corner shower caddy, came from Argos a couple of years ago but seems to have been discontinued. I think it might be the same as Dunelm SKU 30706214. Stays in place because it's sprung, you don't need to drill any holes in walls. Sprung aluminium pole and three plastic caddies (so it won't rust). From memory it will go up to at least 2.5 metres. We didn't need all of the poles for a modern 7ft 6" ceiling but they're all included. Needs a clean.
Offer: Cranesbill (wild geranium) (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 88d - Purple flowers early summer, it's "gone over" now and I'm thinning it out. Pulled up rather than dug up as the roots tend to scramble across the surface of the ground. Quite a lot of it, take as much or as little as you want. Offer: Rose of Sharon plants (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 88d - aka Aaron's Beard. Still some flowers (yellow) but most of them have finished for the year. Quite a lot of it but I pulled it up rather than dug it up so roots aren't terribly good. It seems to be pretty indestructible though if you want to give it a go. Offer: Bergenia Plants (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 89d - Three fair size rhizomes with decent root systems plus several more pieces that may or may not take. Freshly pulled up rather than carefully divided. Offer: Bamboo Plant (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 96d - As can be seen this became pot-bound. It needs to go in a bigger pot (was in a 38cm square bell) or be divided. Feel free to bring your own garden implements if you only want a little piece.
Offer: Car Battery (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 99d - Still life left and takes a charge, but was becoming unreliable as I only use my car occasionally and for short journeys. There is "KG4E16" embossed on it and it came from Kwikfit a few years back. The new replacement was Halfords HB154 if that helps you identify if it might be some good to you. It definitely fits a 2005 Honda Jazz, I've no idea about other cars.
Offer: Old Kitchen Stool (Chippenham SN15) Gifted 110d - Old kitchen stool about 22 inches high. Needs a clean but quite serviceable.

Offer: Sage Colour Wall Tiles (Chippenham SN15) Withdrawn 133d - A quantity Sphinx ceramic tiles in a mottled sage green colour (Pampas or avocado bathroom suite anyone?), believed new. I think I counted 69 plain and 10 decor. Each tile 10cm x 20cm. Probably from the 1980s.
