Request: pond liner - Hi all, just wondering if anyone has some smaller pieces of pond liner they don’t need. I want to put in a smaller pond, so don’t need a huge amount and it seems to only come in really large amounts. An old performed one would also be ok, or an old laundry trough. Happy to pick up from pretty much anywhere in Canberra/Queanbeyan area (& surrounds). Thanks, Jess Free: Dining table - Queanbeyan - A large extendable dining table is on offer. Has some minor surface imperfections but extends to nearly 2m. Can send more photos if required. Cheers, Jess

Free: baby safety gates - Queanbeyan Gifted - I have 2 different sized baby safety gates, both white. One can do a span close to 2m, or less (it has removable sections). The other fits a standard doorframe. Cheers, Jess Free: loft bed - Queanbeyan Expired - Hi All, I have a standard single loft bed to offer. Has a pull out desk and ladder, plus built in drawers and shelves. I will dismantle for collection - you’ll need a ute or trailer to move it. Would prefer it was gone by next Tuesday or Wednesday. Cheers, Jess Free: curtains, various household items, jars - Queanbeyan (Edited by Mod Expired - Hi all, I have a few sets of curtains to offer. 2 pairs are cream, 2 pairs are a silvery grey pattern, 1 pair has a rosey pattern. Grey and cream curtains measure approx 132cm wide x 210cm (4 individual panels, or 2 pairs of each colour). Some of the eyelets on grey set have come out or are missing. The rose patterned ones are 70cm wide by about 105cm long and rod pocket style. None of the curtains are thermal backed. All have been washed and in pretty good condition (except missing eyelets on grey sets). Various tie backs as pictured. I also have a box of assorted clean jars, a ‘nut loaf’ cake tin, Brita water filter jug (no filters but these can be purchased from places like big w and are not expensive), a klippo plastic container and a ceramic 2-tier cake plate. Happy to split stuff or provide more info if needed. Cheers, Jess

Request: moving boxes & plastic storage boxes Expired - Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has any smaller moving boxes or plastic storage tubs they can spare? I’m looking the right size for heavy things like books and crockery. I’m in Queanbeyan but will be all over town this week, so would gratefully collect from anywhere. Thanks, Jess Free: pillow - Queanbeyan Expired - I have a virtually new pillow on offer. It is a firm, high loft pillow that I found didn’t suit my neck, so I only used it once. I always put pillow protectors on and we have a smoke free home. It hasn’t been used in some months.

Free: white cardboard craft boxes, sandwich press and grill - Queanbeyan Expired - Hi all, I have a stack of about 35 unfolded craft boxes. Measure about 20cm square and 6.5 high when folded. I also have a Kogan grill and griddle in excellent condition. One side is a sandwich press, other half is a griddle. The drip catcher (a separate container) is broken but you could easily use any shallow container. Otherwise it is only lightly used.

Free: Vintage enlarger- Queanbeyan Expired - No idea how/if it works. Was left with me when my brother left town, some time ago (he’s given permission for it to go).

Free: Ryobi garden shredder - Queanbeyan Gifted - This shredder has stopped turning on but was working until recently. Maybe someone with electrical skills wants to take it for repair? Just thought I’d offer before it goes to the tip. I am happy to deliver contactlessly, if required. Cheers, Jess Free: Woolies discovery garden - Queanbeyan Expired - Hi freecyclers, I have one of the plastic base things for the woolies discovery garden and 5 of the little plant boxes. All are unused. Full disclosure- a couple have been opened but all contents are intact and they’ve been retaped. If you are interested, I can supply enough extra peat pods to fill the ‘garden’ and some seasonally appropriate easy to grow seeds from my own collection (veggies and/or flowers). Please indicate what you might be interested in when you reply. Thanks, Jess. Free: Folding floor cushion -Queanbeyan Expired - Hi all, I have a folding floor mat to offer. It’s one of those south-east Asian style ones with a triangular end piece and folds out for a bed. It needs a little bit of hand stitching on one side but is otherwise in good nick. See pics for more detail. Cheers, Jess

Request: old board game Expired - My husband and I are looking for a copy of this vintage board game we both played and loved as children. It is called 'the Garden Game'. We would also be interested in 'Garden Rummy', an offshoot of the original. Just hoping someone has one lurking around that they'd be willing to part with - doesn’t matter if it’s missing pieces or damaged. Thanks Request: Organic Gardener magazine Expired - Hi All, Realising this is a huge long shot but I’m looking for a copy of ABC’s organic gardener essential guide to herbs and spices. I had a copy, which went walkabout, and I haven’t been able to buy a back issue. Will collect from anywhere in Canberra or surrounds. Thanks, Jess Free: Shelves - Queanbeyan Expired - Set of chipboard shelves. Have been used to store tins of paint in the shed for some time. Slightly water damaged at the bottom (see picture) but still solid enough for shed storage. Only moved the paint as I now have a bigger set of shelves.

Free: model train magazines, Queanbeyan Expired - I have about 45 various model train magazines on offer. Would love them to go as one lot. Can arrange collection from Belconnen, if required Free: lockers - Queanbeyan Expired - Set of old school lockers. Some doors are bent and don’t close properly but possibly could be fixed. Good to store outdoor toys or tools.

Free: Scanpan frying pan - Queanbeyan Expired - Hi folks, I have a 28cm (I think) scanpan frying pan to offer. The interior finish is intact but the outside is peeling a bit. It used to have a glass lid which I broke but you can get replacements quite easily, I believe. There is nothing functionally wrong with it but I have a larger one, more suited to our family size, so I no longer need it. It is a good quality pan which I’d love to see go to someone who’ll appreciate it - they come with a 25 year warranty and this one would still be around a decade under that, I believe (although I don’t have proof of purchase). Cheers, Jess Free: oyster plant etc - Queanbeyan Expired - I have some recently dug root cuttings from this shade loving plant. While they look wilted, this plant will bounce back strongly. Looks a bit like a giant green rhubarb (not edible though) and gets big white/mauve flower spikes. Beware, once planted, it is difficult to get rid of! I am also happy to dig up some lemon balm or mint for anyone interested - they are taking over my garden and are otherwise headed for the compost heap! Cheers, Jess Request: flexible ducting Expired - Hi All, I need to repair the duct from my range hood extractor but I only need a short length (30-50cm). Rather than buying 5m, just thought I’d check if anyone has a piece rolling around. Thanks, Jess
