Offer: Woolies discovery garden - Queanbeyan - 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. Offer: Folding floor cushion -Queanbeyan - 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 Offer: 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.

Offer: 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 Offer: 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.

Offer: 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

Offer: 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 Offer: couch - Queanbeyan Expired - 3 seater couch, very comfortable but my husband hates it! Smoke free home Offer: armchairs - Queanbeyan Expired - 2 cream armchairs with wooden arms in excellent condition. High back and very comfortable. Unfortunately we have no room for them. It isn’t a great photo as we’re in the middle of renovating but they are unstained and from a smoke free home (except if I burn the toast).

Offer: Sanding belts and disks - Queanbeyan Expired - Hey folks, We have some sanding stuff leftover from a floor refurbishing project. 6 unused sanding disks to fit edgers available for hire at Bunnings 40 grit x 4, 80 grit x 1, 120grit x 2). 4 used sanding belts that still have plenty of life left in them (1 each of 24, 40, 80, 120 grit). These suit Bunnings drum sanders. To go as one lot Offer: sanding disks - Queanbeyan Expired - Also have 2 x 24 sanding disks (unused) Request: pots, cypress floorboard Expired - Hi Freecyclers, I’ve gone a bit plant propagating crazy and I’ve run out of pots! I’m looking for smallish plastic pots - around the size of the hardware shop ‘potted colour’ (about 10cm) or a bit smaller. Can also use punnets or seed trays if you have any unwanted ones. I’m also looking for a length of old cypress pine floorboard. I’m patching up a (close to) 100 year old floor and one board is too damaged to salvage. I need about 3m but can use multiple shorter pieces. I realise this may be a stretch but I thought I’d check before I bought a new piece. Thanks folks! Jess Offer: Pillar candles - Queanbeyan Expired - I have a box full of lightly used pillar candles of varying heights. Were originally used as wedding centrepieces (about 15 years ago) and have sat in shed since. Take 1, some or all. Please bring your own receptacle, as I’d like to keep the box.

Offer: Queen sized mattress - Queanbeyan Expired - Queen-sized mattress with pillow top. Very comfortable. This mattress has only been lightly used as a spare mattress, and then by a 12 year-old for a few months. It has always had a mattress protector on it and is from a non-smoking household. It’s a shame to be rid of it but we have nowhere to store it. Would be a waste for it to go to the tip. Offer: Air hockey table - Queanbeyan Gifted - This is a smaller-sized one. Air compressor still working and includes relevant accessories. Trim needs a bit of regluing (see picture) and puck catchers need to be screwed back on but it is still playable in current condition. Legs come off if needed for transport. Cheers, Jess

Breville icecream maker - I’ve never actually used it but I believe it works, has a small crack in the cover. I contacted breville and was emailed the user manual but I’m sure it could also be broken down for parts Jess Request: Shadecloth Expired - Hi there, just wondering if anyone has any shade cloth scraps (hail damaged is fine) or leftover sarking or flashing.

When it was given to my kids, it came that way. They’ve enjoyed it but it’s time to share the love. To go in one lot. I also have a low table that came as a base for those wooden train track sets you can get. It has a little water damage stain on one end but otherwise perfectly fine and has been in recent use. Measures about 640x1225 and is 400high. The table has a lip to contain all the small parts, so it’s great as a lego/toy car table (contains the mess). Comes apart easily for transport.
