Now the laptop can be anything as long is has wifi so I can skype and is good condition.

And the 32" flatscreen tv must be suitable for the playroom.

<<Sits back and awaits surge of offers>>

Seriously though, why do they let these people on Freecycle? grin

<disclaimer: I don't actually have a playroom so can some one chuck one of those in as well?>>

it has wifi (sorry still gobsmacked and can't type correctly)

I'll give you a laptop if someone can give me off street parking and a downstairs toilet.

It's good this exchange thing, isn't it grin

Sure, right after someone gives me a Phil and Teds pram, and a moped to get to and from work.

Honeydragon Thu 04-Aug-11 13:20:17

I can do the off street parking, but don't expect me to weed it grin

Who do you think I am, the benefits office?! grin

Is it a code for drugs transactions? Or sex clubs?

Otherwise it doesn't make sense, really.

Not that my great theory did, either.

Hi I'm a student so could I please have a tent to go to a festival, oh and me and my mates need some beanbags/comfy chairs for our flat in London next year, oh and a working record player

Ta!

CoffeeIsMyFriend Thu 04-Aug-11 13:24:50

haha do we frequent the same freegle? We had someone ask for a car not so long ago! grin

Impatientwino Thu 04-Aug-11 13:25:12

I have only used freecycle to get rid of husbands erm my crap I don't want!

Awomancalledhorse Thu 04-Aug-11 13:25:15

There is a post on my local asking for a King Size Bed & Breeze Blocks.

Oooh, found an offer; Britax Carseat, For child 9-18kg weight. Conforms to BS 3254. In good condition and used for one child only, never in an accident, but over 20 years old now.

Why would you wait that long before getting rid of the carseat?

I'd rather like a three-bedroomed Victorian cottage. Not just anywhere, you understand but within a 100 yard radius of where I demand. Oh, and don't bother if the bathroom isn't white with sanded and waxed original floorboards. Thank you very much please.

I offered a tent.

Someone asked for it saying

'when can i collect going campin saterday n not got 1'

And yes, I have C&P'd that!

Honeydragon Thu 04-Aug-11 13:29:01

Coffee we must do grin, I was going to stick my bike on but instead was wtf shock

Maybe we can start a Mnet freecycle and swap all our big hairs for slow cookers? wink

Impatientwino Thu 04-Aug-11 13:31:40

100% - question - who arranges to go camping without owning a tent?! smile

I need an iphone 4 which has been got on a contract that is already paid for thank you. And party invitations for a 50th birthday party for someone called Mike who is going to be 50 this weekend. lol. and some chairs/other party miscellanea for said party.

Actually, I offered a washing machine, dishwasher and cooker on mine, and got hundreds of responses - most of them saying 'I'm a single parent with X children and my washing machine/oven/dishwasher broke down last night/this morning' (where X was always more than 3). I was quite shocked that so many white goods in my area were on the blink at the same time!

Awomancalledhorse - it's entirely possible that there is still a car seat in our loft - I know there's a cot. DS and DD are 23 and 21.

We did start sorting the loft out last summer, but then DS fell through the bathroom ceiling and it kind of got put on hold...

Awomancalledhorse Thu 04-Aug-11 13:34:11

Damn, I'm hooked now;

looking for a caravan farly good condition; looking for a caravan to be able to take children on short breaks away

Male Urinal; I know its a strange request but does anybody have a urinal??? I will collect.

Also wanted, 14 laptops, 1 Jetski, 1 Garage door, 1 Motorbike and a shed.

HuntForGalaxyHazelnut Thu 04-Aug-11 13:35:32

I saw a freecycle once were someone wrote "Wanted: Euros"

The mind boggles. hmm

That's nothing, a friend of mine had someone posting the following on her local freecycle. Still makes me chuckle:

'I am currently looking for a narrow boat in any condition. If someone
has a narrow boat lying around that they no longer want or need I would
really appricate if you would like to Freecycle it to a passionate
narrow boat enthusiast such as myself!'

Impatientwino Thu 04-Aug-11 13:39:51

what about this one?

Bed stolen! Replacement urgently required! - Someone stole my bed whilst I was moving house! I need another double bed or mattress as soon as possible.

How, how how did that happen????????

PS - Honeydragon - if you're in the right sort of are (commuter belt, near a sports or music arena, near some kind of tourist attraction) you might be able to make money renting out your driveway... :-)

*area, not are.

In the last month we have had on my local freegle (which I run)

I NEED an iphone

Does anyone have a laptop for my son I am not bothered what make it is as long as it is modern

Am looking for a mercedes

I need a 42" tv for my new flat there are 6 of us sharing so we need it this big

and such like. Being able to see these before they are on the group gives me a giggle but also means I can delete them as the policy is not to ask for big or expensive items.

In my local group a couple of weeks ago somebody posted a list of things they wanted including a fridge freezer, tumble dryer and washing machine and specified that they must all be in working condition and needed to be delivered. confused
