  1. Hi John Great idea! Here’s my quote from the Street Recycle:

    “It was so much fun to see our unwanted stuff finding new and happy owners! I was able to rehome lots of things, from a PT Bouncer, hoola hoop and an old suitcase to a wicker basket, old maps – and lots of plastic light sabres that The Husband insisted on collecting from car boot sales over the years for our Star Wars-mad child (now-21-year-old student daughter all grown up and living in London doesn’t know about this yet, but there’s still two left). The absolute best was a teenage boy who enquired after an old skateboard we’d had hanging around in the back garden for years. Apparently it’s so old, it’s now a classic. “This is sick!” he said, even more delighted when I told him he could have it for nothing. “Look at the runners! Look at the wheels!” he said to his girlfriend. They fairly skipped off down the road to show it off at the skateboard park. A wooden toy Viking sword , a stash of unopened and unwanted beauty products and a magazine basket that was snapped up for fireside logs by another happy punter, and we were done. As always much of the fun is drinking tea on the step and chatting with neighbours and passers by, as well as seeing people so pleased with their finds. It’s made me have a clear out and the rest will go to charity shops. A lovely day that, with the gorgeous weather, seemed to properly mark the start of summer.
