Free: John Lewis small double bed frame (4' / 120cm) (Gosforth NE2) Promised 73d - This is a small double bed frame originally from John Lewis. It's 4' / 120cm (125cm x 204cm footprint). It's about 15 years old but in good condition; it was strengthened by John Lewis with a cross brace after a product recall (see photos). It's beech veneer finish. There are 8 machine bolts and four screws required to reassemble. The slats don't break down further so a larger vehicle is needed to transport it. Collection only
Free: XBox 360 and games (Gosforth NE2) Gifted 94d - This is an XBox 360, I've had it for a long time, bought second hand. There are a few games as well as seen in the photo. I turned it on to wipe the HDD and it seemed to work fine but haven't tested it beyond that. It has a component / SCART cable as well as a VGA for (older) monitors. There's one controller with an AA pack and a USB. I have a second controller but it has a wireless pack and the battery leached, but I can include this if you want to take a crack at it. Collection from near Ilford Rd Metro in Jesmond.
Free: Alto saxophone with case and accessories (Gosforth NE2) Gifted 1y - This is an alto saxophone and case for collection near Ilford Rd in Jesmond. This is a Montreaux* branded alto saxophone bought from J G Windows in 2010. I learnt to play with this horn but it's been in a cupboard for a good few years now since I have other horns and I'd rather someone else had the chance to learn. The horn itself is in very good condition, though would probably benefit from a service (J G Windows serviced this horn previously). The case is a bit dusty but otherwise in good condition. It has various pockets and includes backpack straps to help carry it. I've tried to include everything needed to get started including some new soft reeds and a neoprene neck strap. There's also a neck saver and cork grease, and a book to get started (I can't find the CD but the tracks seem to be in YouTube, and the DVD is there). For Covid safety, I will place the saxophine just behind the door. I will open the door and step back so the saxophone can be collected safely. * These were apparently Trevor James stencil horns at one point but I cannot say for certain.
Free: Vintage alto saxophone case (Gosforth NE2) Expired 1y - This is an alto saxophone case. The construction is faux leatherette over particle board with a felt interior. I received this along with a 1970s saxophone purchased online, but there no logo or other indication of provenance. There are locks but no keys. It's solid but has some damage to the covering and lining plus an earlier repair inside. It could also do with a clean. For Covid safety, I will leave the case outside the door at the agreed collection time.

Free: IKEA dining chairs with cushions (Gosforth NE2) Gifted 1y - Two oak-coloured IKEA dining chairs with blue cushions. Chairs are in very good condition. Cushions are somewhat faded and bobbled from washing, but have a fire label. Collection from Jesmond near Ilford Road. For Covid safety, I will leave the chair(s) outside the front door when you are nearby.
