I ask because the response to Trinity was so overwhelming that I'm sure there are lots of mumsnetters who would be happy to pass on their USED bits to genuine mumsnetters who need it.
Obviously it would only work if people didn't take the pee and ask for a BNIB Nintendo Wii
But for instance I'm in need of age 5 jeans for DS, I hhave scoured ebay, charity shops and also left a message ont he mumsnet clothes board, but 98% of mumsnetters don't visit that, but Im sure that if there was a wanted section and people saw the ad 'has anyone got any age 5 jeans they are finished with please?' then there would be mumsnetter that would have such things.
I understand alot of people are weary about scammers but MNers aren't daft and can see the difference between a new poster asking for 'Boden baggies' and an old time reg asking for school skirts or the such.
If it were agreed this may be a good idea, but some people did really not want to see the section then there is a hide facility anyway.
I agree would need to be a def WANTED board and regulated that any 'for sale' posts that crept in would be removed. I used to love the wanted board when we had old format as I'd see a 'wanted' and then realise I could help and I've aksed for bits and wanted to pay for them but hardly anyone looks at the for sale/wanted boards anymore
