Thankyou Freecycle

I joined Freecycle a while ago, mainly to get rid of things that I no longer needed.

But just look what I picked up from freecycle last weekend! It's in perfect condition, and I can stack and hang all sorts of crafty things, and then wheel them around the house.

I had to take it apart to fit it in the car, and then it took me about 2 hours to put it back together when I got home (and I ended up putting the shelves together upside down), but it was soooooo worth it.

I love trawling freecycle even though I have yet to find anything in my little part of the world. Country people seem slower to take up these initiatives. C herrie

Cyber swipe! Man I need one of those groovy hangy thingies in my life. Hmmm when we get back to Australia, I NEED to check out freecycle. For now, I guess I just filch the change table/bath from CT.

I love the idea of wheeling my crafty stuff around the house with me! I would never have to be separated from my fabric!

I love freecycle. I love the fact that I can post things and that instead of having to drive somewhere to dispose of it, *other people* come and remove it for me! And better still, they actually *want* to use it! I've picked up a few cool things along the way too. And then there was the time my dad wanted to make a path in the backyard, and so I replied to an offer of 400 red bricks... and then had to go pick them up...

Great organiser!!

Love the mobile hanger - how wonderful to be able to move your craft station to different parts of the house!
