Someone was asking for an Aga (in a particular colour) on our Freecycle a while back.....

i'm sure in certain areas, loads of people have spare rayburns/agas hanging around...
and anyway, it's the commisioning that costs, not the big old lump of metal!

I don't get it. What's a cobb bbq? Something posh and designer I suspect? On our freecycle someone was advertising two boxes of cocopops. One opened. Don't know if they got any takers!

Do you think I'd get a bell tent if I asked? There seems a absence of any second hand!

i've seen patrol tents going for chips.....and i do know of people throwing away tents like mine.

bell tent - possible, if you wanted one of the old-school scout-style ones.

COBB BBQS cost about £80 Minimum new, and have not been around much in this country....
