Offer: Old carpet (Bath) Expired - It’s a large rug, maybe 12’ x 8’, MOTHEATEN, so no good for indoor use but if anyone wants it to suppress weeds or similar it could end its days usefully.

Abut of a long shot but if someone would like it they would be welcome to have it.

Offer: Dusters (Bath) Gifted - Does anyone need more dusters? We seem to have loads, think they’re reproducing in the cupboard. Used but plenty of use still, and clean. Offer: Oil lamp base (Bath) Gifted - It’s a fully working oil lamp base, shown in second picture, unfortunately minus its chimney - these are available to buy online. The first picture gives an idea of what it would look like with its chimney. I’ve offered this before but sadly more than one interested person failed to collect so this is its last chance, metal recycling after this.
