I joined a freecycle group ten years ago and weekly receive emails of items offered. I’ve recieved a few useful things over the years and got rid of some unwanted tat on there too. The problem I find with the freecycle group I joined is that it’s County wide and free items offered could be upto 30+ miles away.
However two weeks ago I was offered a Smeg stainless gas oven, and although was 10 years old, had spent the last 6 years in storage in the garage. Ebay had similar used smeg ovens for sale starting around the £350 mark. The only problem with this gas cooker was one of the gas ring surrounds had gone missing, but a full replacement set online could be bought for £20 and the genuine part would cost less than £30.
Anyway. I didn’t except the gas cooker as it was 600mm wide and the cooker in the wagon is only 550mm side. Not fancying taking out or moving a adjacent cupboard and all the faffing about with the 27mile journey.
Today I got a email about a drone going free. It’s a parrot AV drone. Not sure what model/year/series. But I’m only 6 miles away. I emailed the guy earlier and he has offered it to me. So now I’m parked just down the road from him, waiting for a meet up at the pre arranged time. I will let you know what the outcome of this mission is.
