Using our simple new webpages, you can advertise your unwanted stuff to fellow Wanstead folk, all for free. On offer at the time of writing are various bits of baby kit (cots, tricycle etc), a camera, a bike, books and other items.
Here’s how it works. Click on the blue Classifieds button in the site’s top banner. When there, you will be able to place an advert, or browse through adverts other people have placed. If you’re placing an advert, you enter the item’s details, plus a photo if you’ve got it, along with the price you want and your e-mail address. Your e-mail address is not publicly visible. But anyone who wants to buy your items enters their details and our software automatically sends you an e-mail. It’s up to you, as the seller, whether you get in contact to arrange the sale.
Wansteadium has no part in this other than introducing buyer and seller. And it’s all free, the kind of selfless gesture which gives Wansteadium a warm glow.
Remember, though, if you want to give stuff away rather than sell it, there are a number of excellent ways to do it. On Wanstead High Street there is Barnados, the British Heart Foundation and the Oxfam Bookshop. And there’s always the wonderful Freegle Redbridge, a network of local people who give away all sorts of things to people who need them.
