Free stuff in Victoria British Columbia.

I often have stuff to give away, and I'm sure that other members have stuff to give away. Stuff is a very local thing. I tend to get things that are far too large to ship to anyone, so for those outside of the area, this stuff is just eye candy.

I will contribute stuff that I get from my demolition projects and other work, and I encourage anyone else in the Victoria area, to add things that they have in abundance. I can't deliver anything. Too busy.

R Ranson, one of our busiest moderators, has dibs on most stuff that will be added in the next little while, since they are trying to put together a few projects that are already started. But I'm sure there will be many things that are up for grabs generally.

Check in on this thread regularly, to see what's available. My stuff will almost always be building components or things left behind by people who lived in those buildings.

If you have anything to give away, whether it be garden produce or a Lamborghini, post a picture of it here along with some contact information.

I think it would be nice for every region to have a free exchange board like this. I will leave that up to each individual in different parts of the world.

Today's stuff includes a nice shed door, red bricks and some miscellaneous shelving material. There's also a drying rack with pulleys on it.

I'm keeping the meat saw, but it's available to borrow, should the need arise. I tend to get lots of garden tools that need some fix up, and occasionally I get a decent wheelbarrow.

This ironing board, fits into a drawer.  Pull out  the drawer, and the board raises and unfolds.
