    Most charity shops can't sell stuff like baskets or bouncers.

    My mate runs a Cancer research shop and the amount of slings, monitors etc she has to bin is untrue. Everyones scared of being sued if something malfunctions :roll:

    Stick with Freecycle, someone will be glad of it honey. maybe if they're pregnant this weather puts them off coming out? I offered to leave some clothes out last week and the bloke failed to pick them up TWICE. In that horrible rain. Lucky I'd wrapped them up they'd have been wrecked.

    Some charity shops can sell electrical stuff but they need to have something to be able to do it....
    One i worked in there were two shops next to each other, one could sell electricals and the other couldnt.

    Id agree not to take it to the charity shop though because they honestly do throw alot of stuff out! (thats how i got so many baby clothes, they were gonna go to trash for being dirty!)

    Is your address quite hard to find? Maybe they couldn't find you? Just a thought :)
