Have tried Gumtree and eBay, with no success and wondered if anyone knew of a gardening website that allows members to put stuff up for sale on a board?
Sorry Jess don't know of anywhere. I guess you could always try one of those postcard ads at the local newsagent/supermarket. If that doesn't work a small ad in a local free paper and failing that there's always the car boot option.
Local boot fairs are probably best. If you advertise on the net you dont know who will be calling. Some genuine buyers but you never can tell.
I get brilliant gardening tools at v. good prices from my local Wisbech car boot. I think it costs the stall holder £5 or £6 to stall out. I would do it before Easter; that's when a lot of people get interested in gardening
you could try a postcard advert at the local allotments.
what kind of stuff Jess ?
If all else fails you could give them away to your local Freecycle people.
dj some really good fiskars lawn shears
Just had another thought Jess - are you on facebook as you could put a posting on there stating the price you would like. This has worked with some of my relatives.
Ooh Forester, good idea! Thank you.
There are charities that always want tools which they refurbish and send out to Africa.
Do you really have to sell them or could you give them away?
Hi Jess - Try "Free Cycle" you post on there what you want to give away and people who want them just come round and collect. We have posted furniture and garden items and we have always had nice people come round and take them away
maybe there should be an exchange/sale/giveaway page on this site?
Thank you- no one interested in eBay. Must admit was surprised as it's almost new and worth a bit!
I use free cycle frequently, bit for once would have liked to get a few quid for a good almost-new product- to buy some more plants with
Yes Steve, I agree- a seed swap/tools for sale/plants to sell or swap - would be a fab idea!
There'd need to be some geographical coordination...
