Is it worth putting a 'wanted' section? It may jog people's minds if they have anything that could be of use to somebody else?????
Jamanda

Perhaps the courier section could double up?

done Cool
Rusticwood

I'll be bringing some wooden things with me for sale
gardening-girl

BTL has some Horn Sticks to sell.
Chez

Quail. Apparently.
Cathryn

I have a stack of books, fiction to give away. Good trashy stuff (it did look vaguely intellectual until one of the students at the weekend fancied The Road, so it's all easy read stuff now). It didn't make it to the Fibre weekend so please remind me to pass it for this one.

Highly unlikely wanted (in that a high percentage of downsizers also sew) I am renovating some old Singer sewing machines, if anyone has the odd metal round bobbins and those that go into the bullet shaped ones, they would be handy as a spare. I intend using these machines. Smile
Jamanda

They were saying at work they'd found a load of old bobbins and did any one want them. What models do you have?
Cathryn

Singer. metal ones. These machines don't like plastic. One is Jacks grandmothers, bought new in 1940 and the other is his Great Grandmothers bought new in 1873. Smile That one takes a very different shape.

Any you have spare would be great. My own machine (Brother) also takes the metal ones and isn't keen on the plastic ones. (Excess can be passed onto the organisation that renovates them and garden implements and sends them out across the world.)
Ginkotree

I have books and Jigsaw puzzles that people might want.
Last time there were tables put out in the big barn for folk to display thier goods...
do we have to write everything we might want to find new homes for, wether for exchange give away or sale...or if we remember last minute things can we put them out anyway... I will recycle the items left if folk do not want to bring things incase they might have to take them away again...we have lots of different groups who use the farm with very diverse wants/needs..its amazing what we have found homes for in the past!

WANTED

Clean cotton 'rags' - worn out old t-shirts or anything that's too far gone for charity shop purposes for cleaning up my inking slabs and rollers.

Mochyn kindly gave me a whole bin bag last year and I'm just coming to the bottom of it.

Many thanks

I have no doubt that there will be last minute things put out and I am all for leaving you to rehome/recycle anything left. Cool

What are the options of "flavours" please Sally? sally_in_wales

essentially its anything thats in the shop at the moment, or if you had the shaving pot option, any of the shaving soaps or the cedarwood & lime if the Victorian ones didnt appeal. I'm also due to do a batch of Peppermint & Patchouli (an Edwardian recipe) shaving soap next week that won't have been on the email I sent round Snowball

Anybody use any empty plastic sweet jars. let me know before 5.30 Tuesday evening

Actually yes but I am not going, if anyone could get them Essex London way I would pick them up, other than that I would be happy to pay postage, I'm guessing they are bulky rather than heavy.
