I luurve Freecycle!

I took my 2 dds to a Freecycle shop! Excellent idea - you simply bring stuff you dont want and take away stuff other folk dont want! Anyway, it was actually quite good -thought it would either be nobody turn up or full of dealers pinching all the good stuff and it wasnt like that at all. It was at a day centre and anything that wasnt taken away was to be sold in their second hand shop to raise money for the centre - brilliant idea! Here's what we got...

Hamster rotastak
Brown leather handbag
Brown material handbag
6 books
2 necklaces
1 ring
1 puzzle (still in wrapper - will be an xmas gift)
1 shirt (still with tags)
Fleece hat
Makeup set (still with tags)
2 photo frames
1 bra (still with tags)
Coloured pencils

I got rid of a bag of books and 2 black bin bags of old clothes and shoes.

Then popped into Lidls to get shopping (including loads of seeds) and got some picnic stuff and had a lovely picnic in the car followed by a nice walk along the beach.

  1. Hi this is an excellent idea - wish we had something like that in Brighton! I love using Freecycle itself, just today got a lovely poster to decorate out quite bare living room...

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed the event. We are having another one tomorrow, Sunday 25th 2-4, same venue.
