I believe that Freecycle started somewhere in USA. But now it is definitely over here in the UK as well.
I am a member of my local group, and get regular e-mails with OFFERED and WANTED listed, sometimes they don't catch my eye, but tonight two have.
I will always see what anyone offering "various" has to offer. The various e-mail I looked at tonight has a huge list of items, a workshop clearance.
The other that caught my eye was a WANTED request, "Big Cat Carrier", I'm sure this is a punctuation mistake, and they aren't wanting a huge basket to put a lion, tiger or some other such creature in, but who knows?
Any way, I think I should share the list of "various"
