Hello everyone, and Happy Valentines! How was your day? We had gorgeous weather here, well in the morning at least. The sky was blue (an essential!) and the sun even came out. Although it was cold, it was not unbearable.
I am still very pleased with my new discoveries. Someone I knew in Bedford told me about Freecycle a couple of years ago, but I had later heard about Freegle but could not find it, until the other day, and last night I signed up to Freegle too.
You will never guess but I found a couple of pianos on there, for free. Its just a shame that we have absolutely no space here to add another piano. I can imagine that is probably one reason why these people were wanting to get rid of their piano.
Today I came across this website that looks excellent too. It is about clothes swapping and provides a way for you to get new clothes (second hand) without spending any money – fantastic! These sites are good if you are looking for things for yourself, as well as for gifts for friends and family. They eco-friendly and you will be doing your bit towards sustainability and helping the planet, not to mention your wallet.
Covert Candy essentially involves you posting photos of clothes you want to get rid of, and you list them for credits, and when you have posted off your item to someone who wants it, you then get credits in exchange that you can use to choose something for yourself from the website. Did I mention they do jewellery too, so it is not just clothing. If you are on twitter then you can follow Covert Candy at http://twitter.com/covertcandy to receive updates on new listings.
Another website is called Big Wardrobe, and it has over 70,000 listings right now at this time, and almost 27,000 members worldwide.
