Free: New and unused men's steel expanding watch strap 18mm (Fairwater CF5) Expired - New and unused men's steel expanding watch strap 18mm. Came with new Timex watch which was only available with a metal strap, when I prefer leather, so I swapped it over. Only the metal strap is being offered.

Free: Set of 4 dining chairs, upholstered in Green (Fairwater CF5) Gifted - 4 dining chairs with sage green upholstery. Probably from the 1970s or 1980s. In reasonably good condition for the age, except that on two of them the seats are loose and need to be secured with screws or other means in order to be secure to sit on. Collection to be arranged at a mutually convenient time, of course.

Free: Miscellaneous cutlery (Fairwater CF5) Gifted - Stainless steel. At least 6 each of knives, forks large and small spoons. Plus a couple of bonus items. Think of it as a starter kit for someone who doesn't have these items.

Free: Tesco bagless vacuum cleaner (Canton CF5) Gifted - Seems to work well. I've done what I can to wash and clean the internal filters, although they would probably benefit from being replaced. Rapid collection needed please! Could be any time from now to to 4pm today, Wednesday 7th December, or by arrangement on Thursday. Possibly thereafter but I will need to dispose of this on or soon after Thursday.

Free: British Gas standby saver (Fairwater CF5) Expired - In box and unused. Details of what it does are shown in the picture of the back of the box. It seems that freegle blues the pictures server can't be read, if that is the case I can only summarise here that it detects when you use your remote control to put your TV into standby and automatically turns off all the other appliances plugged in. It then turns everything back on when you use your remote control again. I think.

Free: British Gas Real Time Electricity Monitor (Fairwater CF5) Expired - In box and clearly unused, therefore also untested. I think these were popular before the big drive to install smart meters, which presumably do something similar. I don't have either.

Free: Relectafoam to go behind radiators (Canton CF5) Gifted - Relectafoam to go behind radiators. Pack open but seems pretty full to me. Allegedly, sticking this on the wall behind your radiator will reflect heat into the room and prevent it from warming up the wall.

Free: '9 band' radio with clock and alarm (Canton CF5) Gifted - Boxed, unused. NB it days 'digital' but it is not a DAB receiver, I think digital refers to the display.

Free: Glassware, mugs, china, kitchen utensils (Canton CF5) Expired - Mostly everyday items but some are nice. I don't have facilities or time to wash anything in the house that we are clearing, so they all need a good clean. A lot of this has gone now l so I've remove the original pictures and posted some pics of what is left. I may have forgotten to photograph the mugs, there are still quite a few of those. We need collection asap and by end of November as otherwise stuff will go to charity shops or, unfortunately, the dump.

Free: Convector-radiant electric room heaters (Canton CF5) Gifted - They heat up when plugged in but I can't vouch for electrical safety. The first one can be used in radiant or convector mode. Of course, we all know electric heating is expensive, but they could be useful for an otherwise unheated room or conservatory or garage/outbuilding. (2 others have been taken)

Each album can hold 50 6 inch by 4 inch photos. My original description of these as self adhesive albums was incorrect.

Free: Braun hand blender (Canton CF5) Gifted - Simple and effective hand blender which ca be used to liquidize smallish quantities of soup etc. I've had mine for decades. This one has discoloured plastic but I've tested it and it works fine. You can get a new equivalent for £20, but I think the old ones like this with metal blades are more effective, so if you want to save £20, this is your chance.

Free: 24-Bottle Wine Racks (3 available) (Canton CF5) Gifted - Good condition. Could potentially be used for other bottles!

Free: China and glassware etc (Canton CF5) Gifted - In the house we are clearing, there is still a great deal of china and glassware. Some is everyday, some is a little bit nicer. I've taken pictures of some of the cupboard shelves to give a general idea but there's more than this. Our intention is to send it to charity shops, but if somebody would like to come and take it all, or at least a good party of it, that would be good as well, and save us the trouble of wrapping and transporting it. We can offer bubble wrap and boxes for somebody to do it themselves. However, I don't want a succession of people coming to look round who only want one or two things.

Free: Glass-topped wicker table (Canton CF5) Expired - Poor images, but a nice period piece. NOTE that the corners and glass top can be removed to allow a different paper, or none, to be put under the glass. Could be really nice if painted imaginatively.
