Request: World globe (High Wych CM21) - Hi there. My mother-in-law would like a large globe so that she can cheat at her crossword puzzles. It needs to have writing that is large enough to read, so probably needs to be reasonable pumpkin-sized rather than grapefruit-sized. She doesn't want the blow up beach ball type, but if it was one of the ones that light up, that would be fantastic. Olde Worlde or modern style or something in between is all good, so long as it has legible place names, she will love it. Thanks for reading. Offer: Double Duvet near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - 11- tog Double Duvet. "Centa-Star Delta Scandinavian Quilt, made in Great Britain. Terylene Superloft filling. 50% polyester 50% cotton case". Stored in bag for 5 years. It has some marks on it. Suitable for a person or their pet. Smoke free home. We have a cat but she has not been on it. Contact free collection, as I can put it in a sheltered position outside.

Offer: Outdoor table near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - Wood and metal table in need of TLC. It is repairable and could last for many more years, with a bit of glue each Spring. It is solid, not rickety or wobbly in any way, but please note the table edges slope towards the middle slightly, due to gravity. It has been stored in a shed every winter, and sanded and revarnished most years. It's big! Comfortably seats 4 armchairs. Tabletop diameter is 49" Please check that your vehicle is big enough. The tabletop comes off the base in one piece. The legs can be detached and flat packed. Originally from Homebase, when Homebase was good! If you are willing to re-glue the same 3 slats every year, this could last a long time, as the base is robust. We can dismantle it and leave it at the end of our drive for contact free collection. Please note that the screws aren't the originals but work fine. Smoke free home, but we do have a cat.

Offer: Wooden Mortar & Pestle and Glass Mason Jar near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - The mortar and pestle has some marks on it: soy sauce? paint? The glass jar is for decorative purposes only. It latches fine, but the rubber seal is degraded. I noticed some tiny glass shards, so I don't think it's safe for food. Happy to split. Struggling with photos loading, hence combining two items. Collection only. Contact free.

Offer: Chandelier with 30 faux crystals near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - Bronze/ Copper tone metal 3-arm light fitting with 30 faux crystal drops. Note one curly Q is detached and on close inspection, I think another is missing. It's not immediately obvious. Also there is a decorative metal tube missing, just below where the nearest lightbulb would sit in the photo. You can see the silver part it would cover. Obviously I will update this information if I find it, and I will send it to you if it turns up after you collect it. We bought this chandelier second hand and didn't wind up using it. I believe that it works as it was sold to us as such. Any crafters out there who are interested in just the baubles without the light fitting, please get in touch now, to save any re-posts. However, please be patient as priority will be given to someone who would like the chandelier. Sorry, collection only. Contact free.

Offer: Cream & Gold Chandelier with Faux Crystal Drops near Harlow (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - Cream and Gold- tone metal 3-arm chandelier with 30 faux crystal drops. All there and in good condition and working, to the best of my knowledge. We bought this second hand but didn't wind up using it. If any crafters would like to just have the baubles, please get in touch now, to save me re-posting. Please be patient as priority will be given to someone who would like the entire chandelier. However the "crystals " could be used for jewelry or as part of wedding bunting. They are probably too big and heavy for earrings but would make beautiful necklaces or trim on a garment. I'm not sure if they are cut glass or very good quality plastic. Sorry, collection only. Contact free.

Offer: Cat Radiator Bed Frame (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - Near Harlow Mill. This is the robust metal frame for a cat. It unfolds to hook onto a radiator. Our cat refuses to use it (even in winter). *Important!* It does not include the fleece cover. This offer is only the frame. The fleece cover was a glorified pillow case, 20" wide x 27" long. I suspect you could use any pillow case, providing the width was about right, or make your own. Sorry, collection only. Contact free.

Offer: 2 Chandeliers with "Crystals" near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - Two 3-light Chandeliers made of metal with 60 sets of hanging cut glass (faux crystal) baubles between them. One is gold/cream tone. The other is dark gold/bronze tone. There are more "crystal" drops than in the first picture, 60 sets in total. See 2nd photo. One of the bronze tubes which cover the lightbulb fitting attachments is missing. Look closely and you will see that each chandelier currently has two, right below where the lightbulbs would sit. However, the cream one now has all 3. I will edit and update the online information if find the bronze tube, but due to problems uploading photos, it's likely to just be a text update. A bronze "curlyQ" is detached and pictured with the baubles. It took me some time to even figure out where it came from, so it's not that obvious that they aren't all there. The creamy gold Chandelier has all of its little twiddles intact. I am happy to split these if someone only wants one light fixture. We bought these 2nd hand but didn't wind up using them. We believe that they work. The sockets are in good condition. If no one wants the Chandeliers, I will consider offering just the glass baubles. They would be suitable for many crafts including jewelry making or perhaps part of bunting for a wedding. You can get in touch now to save me re-listing them, but please be patient as preference will go to someone who wants the lights as well. I believe that they are probably glass as they are so heavy, but they may be good quality plastic. Sorry, collection only. Contact free.

Offer: Two 5' strip light bulbs (High Wych CM21) Gifted - Near Harlow Mill. 2 x 60" strip light bulbs. One is new in its original GE brand box. The other is used but we believe it works. We changed our kitchen light fitting and it was working when we took it down. Box on new one says 58W. T8 Polylux. 1500mm. 830 Warm white. The used one was from the same ceiling light fitting but is noticeably thicker circumference. Both of these are the "old fashioned" (not LED) type of bulbs that are now difficult to buy.

Offer: Iron near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - 1800-watt Braun PV3210 iron with instructions, good for ironing cotton shirts. If memory serves me correctly, the reason this became a spare was because it has an occasional drip. This means that some fabrics, like silk, could water mark. Cotton (and poly cotton blends) doesn't water mark. I believe the thermostat is reliable- otherwise I would not have kept it. I only ever used distilled water for irons and batteries in this iron. Therefore there should be no limescale or brown marks to worry about. It has an anti-calc system but I didn't need to use it. I am including the original water jug. There is a tiny pinhead sized scuff on the iron plate. I would be very surprised if it caught on anything, and it definitely wasn't the reason I stopped using it, but it's only fair to mention it. It's a nice heavy iron, but for those who like such things, you should know that the handle is solid, not squishy. I can leave it outside for you for contact-free collection. Sorry, collection only.

Offer: Iron near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - 1800-watt Braun PV3210 iron with instructions, good for ironing cotton shirts. This iron became a spare because it has an occasional very small drip. It's minor and infrequent, but means that some fabrics, like silk, could water mark. Cotton (and poly cotton blends) doesn't water mark. The thermostat is reliable, otherwise I wouldn't have kept it. I only ever used distilled water for irons and batteries in this iron, so there should be no limescale to worry about. It has an anti-calc system if you opt to use tap water. I am including the original water jug. There is a tiny pinhead sized scuff on the sole plate.It didn't catch on anything I ever ironed, including delicates, but it's only fair to mention it. It's a nice heavy iron, but for those who like such things, you should know that the handle is solid, not squishy. I haven't used it in more than a year, and no longer want to store it, hence offering it here. I can leave it outside for contact free collection. Sorry, collection only.

Offer: Freezer near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Gifted - Zanussi freezer for under worktop. Working absolutely fine when I unplugged it to defrost and put on Freegle. However, due to recent DIY we had to switch our power off twice and it didn't turn back on straightaway either time. After waiting 10 - 15 minutes, it works absolutely normally. In other words, once it's on, it's on. It is old (there is a sticker from 2002) but otherwise reliable. There are 4 sections inside. The middle 2 are wire drawers with plastic fronts and are in good condition. The top and bottom sections are shelves with a plastic flap. The top one opens automatically when the door is open. The bottom flap is detached but still provides protection if there are items behind it. I discovered a 5 cm crack in the middle of the door seal, near the floor, when I was taking the measurements. I took a closeup photo so that you could see it. I didn't even know it was there and I don't believe it affects the reliability of the door closure. We can bring it outside for contact free collection and I will give it a final wipe down using antibacterial spray. Sorry, we cannot deliver. We can run an extension lead out to it so that you can see it's working. Dimensions (external): 54.5 cm wide 59.5 cm deep (64.5 including door handle) 85 cm tall Thanks for reading.

Offer: Filter Coffee Machine near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Gifted - Russell Hobbs brand "Mr Coffee"- style machine. It makes excellent filter coffee. We just don't use it anymore, as we prefer espresso strength. Original jug and original nylon mesh filter from the late 20th century. I used to only use it with the nylon filter, but started to place a paper filter inside when the nylon started to show some wear. You don't even need the correct round filters. The cone-type (×4) work if you crumple them down a little. Much loved coffee pot. I hope someone else will use it. Base unit: 17 cm wide at the back 13 cm wide at the front 20 cm deep 25.5 cm tall Jug holds 1200 ml plus a bit. I can spray it with antibacterial spray and leave it outside for you. Collection only please.

Request: large modern globe (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - My mother-in-law has asked for a large modern world globe, in order to help her cheat at The Times' crossword. Here comes the fun (aka fussiness): The globe needs to be large enough to have capital cities and countries marked on it, with writing big enough to read. Antique -style ones probably won't have the information she needs, but 1980s USSR ones might, if they have the divisions for Kazakhstan etc. Colours don't matter, but information does. And, er, size. So that she can read it, it needs to be beach ball sized, as opposed to a grapefruit. But not an actual beach ball please, she wants an old fashioned hard one. (Ooh er). I've seen lamp versions in the shops- one of those would be great if someone out there doesn't need theirs anymore. I am not working at the moment, so am fairly flexible about when I can collect. I know that the spirit of freegle is for people giving items to people directly, but I'd be grateful for the sharing of information too. If anyone sees a big old globe in a charity shop, please contact me to let me know where. I accept there is a risk that someone else may buy it before I get there, but any leads would be appreciated. I'm a little embarrassed to be so particular, as I am asking for something for free, but the globe needs to be fit for her purpose. Thank you for reading. Offer: sturdy cardboard boxes (High Wych CM21) Withdrawn - If anyone needs some boxes, we have a few. We are on Redricks Lane, near Harlow Mill. You can have all of them or I can split them. Freegle seems to have deleted my older chats/ messages, so I can't contact anyone who has mentioned that they want boxes in the past. Box 1: Hoover box- has printing all over, so would need to be covered if you intend to mail it. The other boxes have minimal writing in comparison. Opening at top. 79cm tall 30cm x 33cm Box 2. Opening at the top 62cm tall 48cm x 28cm Box3. Has hand holes on narrowest sides 41cm tall 45cm x 22cm Box 4. Contained a case of wine. It can come with the inner dividers if you like 39 x 35 x 47 All are in good condition, used once. Smoke -free home. No urgency to collect them if I know for certain someone wants these. However, if I don't hear from anyone, I will put them in recycling. They won't be reposted. Thanks for reading. Offer: 2 Full tins of Barista Style Instant Coffees near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Gifted - Kenco Millicano Americano Original. 170g. Unopened BUT has date underneath which says Best Before End June 2018. Also Nescafe Azera Americano. 100g. Opened this morning, 2 teaspoons used, so virtually full. Date underneath says Best Before End September 2018. Nothing wrong with it - it's not stale. I just didn't like it. One tin bought for guest who said we got the wrong kind. So I bought the 2nd one. That was wrong too! They both wound up in the back of the cupboard. Frankly, we just won't use them. Seems a shame. I wish I'd realised sooner, but fortunately these are Best Before, NOT Use By. Any takers for one or both?

Offer: Small box of polystyrene packing peanuts near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Gifted - Box is 9 1/4" x 9 1/4" x 6 3/4" 24cm x 24cm x 16.5cm The peanuts are pristine. The box has a 1" tear on the outer layer, but it's a thick box and does not go all the way through. I'd still consider this box to be suitable for storage or for posting, I just don't have a use for one this size, or its unwanted unrecyclable peanuts. Smoke -free home

Offer: Cardboard box containing shredded cardboard near Harlow Mill (High Wych CM21) Gifted - Box is 18 1/4" x 12 1/4" x 10 1/2" 46.5cm x 31cm x 27cm So it's a small medium or a fairly big small box. Double walled, but does have a split in one corner, under 2". The box is half full of shredded cardboard and some shredded paper. Seems a shame to put it straight into recycling, especially the shredded cardboard, if someone could re-use it. Smoke -free home.
