    Default Free settling-in houseware in Wellington

    Hi all Welly-bound people!

    If we get our container tomorrow, it means that we have some free stuff for the next persons needing some essential houseware whilst settling in. I am offering a box that contains the following stuff:

    -Basic white dinnerware for 4: mugs, plates, side plates, bowls (diswasher & microwave proof)
    -Cutlery for 4: forks, knives, spoons, teaspoons
    -Kitchen utensils: turner & big spoon-like thingy
    -2 slice toaster
    -Ironing board (small table-top model)
    -3 tea towels
    -floor mop (has a squeezing/draining mechanism)

    All the stuff is basic and of the cheaper end of stuff, but has served us well for 2 months.

    I'm giving it for free for the first person that arrives in Welly and needs it, but with one condition: you must pass it on! I think it would be nice if everyone could add an item or two into the box and pass it on to the next arrival.

    Anyone interested, plese PM me. Ideally I'd like to get rid of the stuff fairly soon, i.e. before next year

    We arrive second week of Jan 2011 all being well - so wont be us this time around -but what a generous and thoughtful idea that will make a real practical difference as well as add much needed feel good value, support and belonging!

    It reflects the true spirit of the ENZ forum - Nice one!

    Oh, have a gold star, Mgee - and the system won't let me rep you.

    What a super idea, tried to rep you too and failed, just sending "good on you" vibes instead

    Super idea! We may be touching down in about 6 weeks' time so if it's all still around then, we may take you up on this offer

    Hi,

    really nice offer- would like to take you up on it if no-one has got there first. We arrive in Wellington late August and would love to use the box briefly and then pass on if not already with someone else.

    Don't appear to be able to send PM- maybe a new member thing maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    Please let me know if still available.

    Thanks

    James (Hannah, Alex and Chloe)

    Hello and welcome

    When you've made five posts on the threads, you'll find you can send and receive PMs. At that time, if you click on someone's username above one of their posts, the drop-down menu will give you that as one of the options.
