pookledo5:58pm: Anyone want this dress for free? I bought it but don't feel comfortable re-selling it on ebay cos of the weird sizing.


Ignore the size. It's really not right. It says it's a size 26, but I am and it's too big on the top and I can't even get it over my waist.

It's not stretchy and has a zip.

For postage only

feanelwa7:54pm: Quick straw poll from a mod
Occasionally (like today) we get posts that aren't really an individual giving away possessions they don't want anymore, they are posts advertising free events, free stuff that companies are giving away as a promotion, things like that. I'm never really sure whether to approve them or not. Also, the community info doesn't really say what our policy is about this kind of post, and it probably should. So I thought it would be helpful to ask the community what you'd like us to do with them.

Do you like posts like this and would you like the mods to approve them, or find them annoying and would like us to reject them? Place your opinions here please!
elven_ranger1:46pm: FREE Theatre show at the Double Locks hotel, Exeter
(well since its techincally a freebie because its free entry to a theatre show... if anyone is in the area they are most welcome to attend. and yes I can post this, because I am the group secretary and publicity officer.  :)  )

The South Devon Players, an amateur community theatre company based in Brixham, Torbay, which specialises in action-packed, family orientated plays about Devons history and folklore, will be performing their current 2- hour play, Gentleman Of The Road, based on a highwaymen who operated in Devon, Thomas Sympson, against the backdrop of the arrival of Prince William Of Orange, in the county.

The performance will take place at the Double Locks Hotel, on the canal in Exeter. Entry is free (though donations in the buckets will be appreciated).

Any proceeds from the show will go back into the group, to fund participation and inclusion for the disadvantaged, as well as into improved costumes and vital equipment like microphones and portable backdrops.

The Players can be contacted via our website http://southdevonplayers.weebly.com. Or on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=46022922794&v=info&ref=ts , or livejournal: sdp_theatre

elven_ranger1:45pm: VAST book clearout
I was going to be selling off my books on ebay but they have these new silly private seller limits. I tried Ebid, but its very slow, when I need the space smartish and I listed on Freecycle twice but both times after I had taken the day off work to wait in, people didnt turn up to collect, and so herewith, is my book collection for postage only. Paypal, so I can shift them pretty quick (I only really have about 10 days to do so ) before mum gets the threatened skip, and I would hate to see these go to landfill.

(please contact me telling me which books you are interested in, and where you are based as I am mentioning this cleaout to some overseas people  - I am in the UK obviously - as well, so I can work out the standard postage for you)

Please note that while some of the books are small, Quite a few, over 50% of the non-fiction ones are  pretty enormous, so postage depends entirely on the books you want. If you need more info on a book, I can send you the link of old ebid listings, for information purposes only as thats where all the photos and blurbs are still.

All the books are used (unless marked specifically as new condition)  but clean, no missing pages. From a smoke free home.

Bear in mind if you want a *huge* load of them... I may have to divide the pile you want into more than one parcel - I dont have a car, and can only carry what I can carry in one go, to the post office. :)

EDIT JULY 19th - I have crossed through the ones already claimed - think I got it right, check comments below to double check, as I am zooming about today and may have missed one or two...  but there are still plenty of books available. :)
