At the end of this month I’m moving house. Or, to be more precies, I’m moving from a house to a flat. For this reason, I have quite a bit of stuff that I need to get rid of and whilst I’d like to donate it all to Freecycle, I also need to buy new stuff, so need to sell it.
Now I could put it all on ebay but to be honest don’t really have the patience to upload all the details, manage the auctions or all the other stuff that comes with it. Instead, I’ve decided on a little experiment: I’m going to list all the stuff I want to sell here and, if people buy it, I’ll make a donation to charity equal to ebay’s seller fees (essentially 10% or £40, whichever is greater – but I probably won’t stick to that limit).
If you’re interested, then drop me a line, I’ll send you a photo, and hopefully everyone’s a winner. I’m going to list prices I think are fair and whilst I won’t get into haggling, might negotiate if you really think things are overpriced (or underpriced!) So, without further ado, here we go.
- Habitat extendable dining table, seats 6-8 (10 at a push) & 6 chairs (not Habitat): £350
- Wooden kitchen table & 4 chairs: £120
- Ikea wardrobe: £75
- Habitat chest of drawers: £25
- Habitat desk: £25
All of the furniture is in good (I’d say very good) condition, and about 5 years old max. I won’t be able to deliver stuff, so you’ll need to be able to pick up from Esher in Surrey. In terms of charities, I was thinking either Cancer Research, Amnesty or NSPCC (or a mix of all 3).
This is totally serious so no mucking about if you don’t mind.
Let me know if you’d like to give a new home to my lovely furniture.
