Free: Misc kitchen items (BT5) Promised - Firstly - Please provide your proper first name at least when responding - those not doing so will be ignored (as those not inclined to bother collecting usually won't bother giving a name!). Thanks. This is a bag of various items, mainly rolls of cling film and greaseproof paper along with a couple of pairs of rubber gloves, a deep fat fryer filter and a tupperware type box. Some opened and partly used, but others brand new (though old).

Free: Large desk mat for computer keyboard etc - damaged. (BT5) - This is a great large 80 x 40 cm mat made of Eco-Friendly Waterproof Natural Cork & PU Leather with a lovely deep navy blue surface & cork effect base. Sadly despite being marketed as stain/spill proof it didn't survive a glass of Coke falling over it, and the underside has started to come away from the top. I don't have anything suitable to stick it together but anyone who does can take it happily as I no longer need it. Please provide your real name when replying - those who don't won't be considered as I need to weed out the time wasters many of whom just ask if an items available.

Free: Some old Glucose monitoring items (BT5) - I once had a diabetic cat so had to do regular testing on his blood sugars and used this kit back in the day. While I think the Esprit glucometer is now so out of date you can't get the discs for it, the finger pricker & needles (in the box) should still be of use to someone perhaps as they're all human versions. Also get the nice case if you want. Long shot I know but hate to just bin in these days of Make do & Mend etc. Please provide your real name when replying - those who don't won't be considered as I need to weed out the time wasters many of whom just ask if an items available.

Free: Vomit containers (BT5) Gifted - Sorry about the nature of this item, but they're one of those things that are now a lot more common than the old kidney dishes etc and a bit less messy perhaps. Great for those with kids especially. I've 30 of them and as I appreciate few might want all 30, I'd be willing to share among the few that might want them - and, if only 1 person responds, I'll let them choose how many they want. Please provide your real name when replying - those who don't won't be considered as I need to weed out the time wasters many of whom just ask if an items available.

Free: Canon Pixma printer - not working (BT5) Gifted - This great Canon printer served me well for 4 years before developing a fault I can't overcome & don't want to spend money on. I suspect it's just that the ink overflow sponges are full & the system needs cleaned etc, but that requires a little more knowledge than me, and a willingness to take it apart a bit more than I'd be happy to bother with. It will come with the CD printing case, and some ink. The cartridges were all modified to provide for refilling but they all need emptied & cleaned etc too for reuse. But if you're looking for a project or into restoring old printers, this would probably be great for you. It was my 3rd one in 15 years and I'm sorry they're no longer available as they're superb printers.

Free: Set of mixed Files & holders (BT5) Gifted - This is a set of mostly A4 magazine holders (x4) and A4 lever arch files (x3) along with an A5 mag holder & A5 lever arch file - they're all old & used but in good condition. Willing to split if enough people are interested in at least 1 or 2 of them, unless someone indicates early on that they'd take them all. Hugely useful for anyone into crafting or has a home office or just for general storage. Please reply with your REAL first name at least :)

Free: Bluetooth speaker (BT5) Gifted - ****Please reply with your REAL first name at least - I'm giving up responding to those who only use nicknames & never then collect items I've held over for them.**** This is a great BT speaker WHEN it works - it has been dropped a few times and now has a wonky charging port so isn't able to be easily charged. Just needs someone with a bit of know-how or willingness to maybe even take the base off & rejig it to get it working again. It has a lovely multicoloured display when working. You can see it here: Ignore their main image as it's different for some odd reason, but if you scroll on down to the full description you'll see it better.

Free: Electric lighter (BT5) Gifted - This is a beautiful electric lighter that lights by means of a little spark generated between 2 prongs at its tip. Unfortunately it only did so once for me before deciding it was done. I've since got another one which works wonderfully and is certainly a talking point. Very safe item & safer than lighting a match or gas lighter etc. Hoping someone with electrical knowledge might take it on as a project. Comes as shown boxed with manual & charger. ****Please reply with your REAL first name at least - I'm giving up responding to those who only use nicknames & never then collect items I've held over for them. Thanks :) ****

It's a short list as I really need rid so if nobody claims by 31st Oct it's going to the dump.

Free: Working large fan - broken motor housing (BT5) Gifted - This is a 4 foot+ fan which has served me well and does still work, but the plastic housing has just come to the end of its life seemingly, as it keeps breaking off bits around the motor, so I'm not keen on using it. Maybe someone can fix or use it for parts. Email with your proper first name please. Available for collection any afternoon/early evening (up to 8pm) except Sunday. Please note I can't disassemble this as I've arthritic hands, so you'll need to be either able to do that on the street if you need, or take it as is :)

Free: Microwave - working. (BT5) Gifted - This is a rather aged microwave but is still working without any known defects. It's a large 800W Cookworks model which has all the usual options - if memory serves me right, it might have a grill function but I've never used that and given its age, wouldn't maybe try now. It's only ever been used for defrosting/reheating but does that fine. I might possibly have the manual for it so once collection is secured, I'll try and hoke that out. Collection can be any afternoon or early evening up to 8pm. ****Only emails where people have provided their first name will be replied to****** - I've had too many without who then never respond back to me & I'm presuming they're scammers or plain time wasters (all seem to have strangely similar email addresses).

Free: Shadowhawk headtorch - working. (BT5) Gifted - I got this torch for doing craft work with, but found it a bit heavy in use, so only used it twice. It's a really powerful 5 light torch and comes with the manual and box. It has 5 options on lighting too as each of the lights can be used singly, double, treble, top 3, lower 2, strobe etc. It's USB charged and comes with a charging lead. ****Only emails where people have provided their first name will be replied to****** - I've had too many without who then never respond back to me & I'm presuming they're scammers or plain time wasters (all seem to have strangely similar email addresses). Collection can be any afternoon or early evening up to 8pm by arrangement.

Free: Electric knife and iron - working. (BT5) Gifted - The knife comes with a single blade and the iron is a rather basic model. Both still work fine though - couple of tea towels thrown in for good measure. Would prefer them to just go together. ****Only emails where people have provided their first name will be replied to****** - I've had too many without who then never respond back to me & I'm presuming they're scammers or plain time wasters (all seem to have strangely similar email addresses).

Free: Small car vac (BT5) Gifted - This car vac is about 2 feet long and IS working but the motor heats up quite a lot so I'm unsure how long it will last for - maybe it's normal for the motor to get hot? Comes with its charging lead. Anyway I've no further use for it so popping it on here. Email to vmord at kitsandcards.co.uk with your proper first name please. Available for collection any afternoon/early evening (before 8pm).

Free: Canon printer IP4700 (NOT working) (BT5) Expired - This is a once brilliant Canon printer which has thrown up an error preventing it from properly powering on (both lights flash alternately). I can't remember the exact error but know it mentioned it being one possibly related to the print overflow tank being full & since I've no mission of fixing it, putting it on here in the hope someone else might be interested in taking it on as a lockdown project or something. It's complete with the rewritable CD case with some rewritable CDs and has all inks still in place as the cart is locked in with the starting problem. I also have a lot of refillable cartridges and some ink available as I've moved on to a different model which doesn't use the same carts. This method can save you tons of money on printing so well worth the minor hassle of refilling (only takes about 1-2 min per cart once you're used to it). Comes from a smoke, pet & (to my knowledge) virus-free household. Please don't ask for it unless willing to collect as I'll have to get help (I've had hand surgery) to put it outside for collection & don't want it then left uncollected. Any other questions please PM me. Also, please provide your real name when replying.

Free: Amazon Basics Electric Pressure Cooker - NOT working. (BT5) Gifted - Please provide your real name when responding - thanks :) This is a great wee pressure cooker when it works but after 2 years of use it's thrown up an error msg the manual says "Send to Service Centre" in order to fix. Well, since none are open, and any services doing house calls charge £40 before they begin, I opted to just buy another. So it's available to anyone with some electrical knowledge that might be able to figure out a fix as I suspect it's nothing major but may need a part that might take some time to locate. I've included manuals, power lead & accessories so if you get it working you'll do well :). Comes from a smoke, pet and (to my knowledge) virus-free house.

Free: LOTS of leads - PC, TV, Audio etc (BT5) Expired - I've 2 bags worth of a treasure trove of leads for anyone into repairing items or just wanting to stockpile :). "Kettle" leads for various items, printer leads, TV aerial leads, computer leads of all kinds incl SATA & CAT3 etc, Also a router (working) and various other bits & bobs. I don't want to split these items so I'm afraid it's all or nothing, as I just need rid. Come from a pet, smoke & (to my knowledge) virus-free home. Please provide real name when replying.

Free: Some papercraft items (BT5) Expired - Please give your real name when replying. Thanks. I've a small amount of surplus card making bits & bobs I'm happy to push on to someone in need. I'm specifically seeking to give them to someone who's maybe just starting out with card making but can't afford to buy any stock e.g. card, paper or envelopes. So please DON'T ask for them if you're already a cardmaker or well able to afford to buy what you need - let those who're truly in need have a chance to get started. I was very blessed when I was starting out in having some willing to do this for me, so I'm just looking to payback the blessing!! Come from a pet, smoke and (to my knowledge) virus-free home. Free: Lots of Christmas baubles (BT5) Expired - I've a lot of redundant brand new baubles available for anyone wanting to get a headstart for this year! The front boxes are small ones about 1-1/2 inches in diameter - think around 30mm and the back box are large 80mm. The bag is then full of a mix of glass, plastic and polystyrene ones in various sizes but mostly more "standard" 40mm. Come from a smoke, pet and (to my knowledge) virus-free home. Please provide your real name when responding.

Free: Box of 11 document holders (BT5) Gifted - This has sat in my house for a couple of years now & I've only ever used one of them, so if you think you could use the other 11 please PLEASE let me know :). They're only small things about 2 inches long so don't take up much space & have a bit of felt on the base to make them stay in place on the desk. And they also have an inbuilt staple remover so really useful for that purpose. Come from a smoke, pet and (to my knowledge) virus-free home. Please provide your real name when responding.

Free: Paper sorter (BT5) Gifted - This is a solid plastic 3 shelf letter rack/sorter - 2 A4 'portrait' shelves and 1 'landscape' one. You can have 4 slots if you have the larger one moved up a few notches. Each shelf is repositionable. The top is strong enough to hold a printer. It's a nice lightweight solution to home paper filing. The red thing is an unmentionable soft drinks can (with ALL advertising removed :) - at least I tried!) just to provide a better idea on size. It's approx 20 x 14 inches. Comes from a smoke, pet, and virus-free home. This needs to be taken before the 5th December if at all possible but please say if you're definitely interested and need an extra day or two after that for collection. Please provide your proper name when replying. :)

Free: Diabetic items - glucometer, microlets etc (BT5) Expired - This is a rather old Esprit Glucometer (2004-5) but was working when last used, plus a little case, a microlet device & blades etc. I used this daily for a diabetic cat I had hence not many items but perhaps of some use to someone. Comes from a smoke & now pet-free home. Please provide your real name if replying - thanks.
