Offer: Double futon trifold sofa bed (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! We recently got a 3 seater sofa bed and now we have no room for the lovely 2 seater that a fellow freecycler gave us. It's a standard 2 seater trifold futon sofa bed with a wooden fraome. It's in good used condition and loads of use left in it. There's a rip in the mattress fabric which can be easily sewn. Request: Kitchen sink overflow unit (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! The bit that attaches my kitchen sink overflow pipe to the sink has corroded and needs replacing. I don't need a whole unit but can't seem to purchase just the piece I need. So I was wondering whether anyone has a sink that they have to dispose of with the overflow attachment still in tact. I'd really appreciate being able to rescue it! Mine is round. Cheers :> Kathryn Offer: Large metal dog crate (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! We have a large metal dog crate that we no longer need.

The springs are starting to show through in a small patch & a tear on one of the arms. Still loads of life left in it I'd say. I'd like to shift it as soon as poss. Cheers :>
Request: Cargo trailer for a bike (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I don't drive and rely mostly on cycling to get around. I would really appreciate having a cargo trailer to transport my shopping, work etc. If anyone has a trailer that they no longer use, I can give it a loving home. Cheers :> Kathryn Offer: Halfords 2 Child Bike Trailor (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I have a Halfords Trail Buggy child bike trailer in reasonable condition to anyone who'll make good use of it. It's structurally sound. Some of the metal bits are a bit rusty. I took the seat out to convert it for my lame dog to use and when putting it back today I've noticed that a couple of nuts are missing & the strap at the front of the seat is broken and part of it is missing. Both of these things should be easy to remedy. A pic of the buggy can be seen if you look up Halfords Trail Buggy online. I need the space it's taking up in my back yard so need to pass this on as quickly as possible. Cheers :> Kathryn Offer: Used padded envelopes (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I have about 30 used padded envelopes in varying sizes that I'd like to pass on to someone who will use them. I'm in Withywood but am frequently Bedminster or town way and could drop them off. Cheers :> Kathryn Request: Hats, especially old fashioned ones (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I'd like to have a go at upcycling some hats, especially old fashioned, formal ones. If anyone has any lying around waiting to be made into a project, I'd really appreciate them. Cheers :> Kathryn x Request: High Vis vests (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! Myself & a friend have an idea for an upcycling project with a view to making some pieces for an entry into the Bristol Fashion Show in November. The theme is RESISTANCE MOVEMENTS/ACTIONS IN BRISTOL in the style of the Gilets Jaunes Protest Movement in France. With that in mind, we're thinking of upcycling high vis vests with representations of the above. That's about as far as we've got. If anyone has any high vis vests, in any state of repair, we'd really appreciate them to get us started! Cheers :> Kathryn Offer: Hovis Bread Yeast- out of date (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I have about 2 dozen boxes (6x7g sachets) of Hovis Fast Action Bread Yeast that was out of date Nov. 2017. If anyone can make use of these, you're welcome to them. I'm in Withywood. Cheers :> Kathryn Request: Any clothing, hat, bag items (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I'm looking for any clothing, hat or bag items that are a single colour and made of natural fibres. Any size. I live in Withywood and don't drive so would appreciate any offers that are close by if there's only one/two items or are within cycling distance or are easily accessible by bus otherwise. I'm in town a lot so could also collect from that vicinity. Cheers :> Kathryn Request: Crepe paper (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! If anyone has any crepe paper they won't be using, I'd really appreciate it.

Cheers :> Kathryn x Offer: Single bed wt 2 drawers (Bristol, BS13) Gifted - Hi! Have just replaced my son's bed so have his old one to give away if anyone wants it. I think it's what is called a diva bed. It has a base wt 2 good sized drawers & a pine headboard. It's on my drive now so I'd be happy if someone can rescue it before it rains. I'll put it somewhere safe if there is a taker. Cheers :> Kathryn Request: 2-3mm thick pcs/sheets of wood (Bristol, BS13) - Hi! I'm learning how to design laser cut items and I don't particularly want to cut plywood. Does anyone have any thin pieces of wood, hard or soft wood, that are surplus to their requirements? About 2-3mm thick would be ideal. Any sizes would be greatly appreciated! That said, I won't be travelling across town for a couple of small pieces. I'm in Withywood. Cheers :> Kathryn Offer: Solar Technology Starter Kit (Bristol, BS13) Gifted - Hi! My son & I started this but the instructions are minimal and it's a bit above our abilities. If you'd like to give it a try, you're welcome to. I'm in Withywood. Cheers :> Kathryn
