I will be leaving my London flat in North Sheen soon and EVERYTHING in it must go. Below is a list of the main items that are for sale, starting with my red sofa and finishing with my used kettle. Without forgetting my toaster and my Ikea jars, of course. As I said, everything must go.
There are a number of other little things that I’m not even bothering putting a price on: they’re yours if you want them, just pop in and see. If I still have my kettle, I’ll even make you a cup of tea.
|Hairdryer: Do you have hair that seems to have its own will and decides what it wants to look like every morning, which most of the times it’s some kind of mushroom-cloud on top of your head? I hear you, I’ve been living with the mushroom cloud most of my life. This hairdryer is what you need, it’s been tested. It comes with a diffuser for curly mood!||£ 5|
|Toaster: No, it’s not “just a toaster”. It’s my toaster, with whom I have been breaking fast every morning for the last three years. Crumbs of my very first toast in this house can still be found in it, it’s a vintage piece.||£ 5|
|Bookshelf: I know what you are thinking: Why shall I buy this second-hand piece of Swedish internal design when I could buy a new one for about 30 quid more? Simple: this one comes already assembled. (The Harry Potter collection stays!)Height and width measures:In British and American English: 12.2 x 12.2 inches.
In rest of the World English: 31 x 31 cm
|Couch: No, this doesn’t come for £ 5. Red leather sofa that I bought new in November 2011 from DFS. Length: In British and American English: 78.7 inches.
In Rest of the World English: 200 cm.It’s proved that red positively affects people’s mood. In some old tribes of Central and South Italy (where I’m from), red is also the colour of good luck and people still use to make sure to have at least one red piece of furniture in every household. Ok, I made this last one up. Anyway: it’s comfortable, it comes with a puff that has an internal storage, and despite it doesn’t have a pull-out bed, it proved itself to be a blessing for lazy afternoon naps and for unexpected friends who crash at yours. Cleaning products are comprised in the price.
|Shoe rack: TOO LATE, IT’S BEEN SOLD! But I may have shoes to give away too, so come and see.||SOLD|
|Kettle: So yes, this is the very same Kenwood kettle that got me introduced to the British art of tea drinking (see here). When Darwin went to Galapagos to study the local species, no one would have paid more than 1 pence for his pencil. How much do you think that same pencil can be worth nowadays? Shall I add more?||£ 5|
Mug stand: And of course, you cannot appreciate the British art of tea drinking without the proper stand for your favourite tea cups.
Kitchen gadgets set and stand: This is an essential piece for your kitchen, crafted from stainless steel and includes a peeler, garlic press, pizza slicer, ice cream scoop and a can opener.
Jars: TOO LATE, IT’S BEEN SOLD!
|TV table: TV has been sold, but the table is still available. Shelves are of glass!||SOLD|
|LG TV 23″: TOO LATE, IT’S BEEN SOLD!||SOLD
|White fold-away chairs: These can be folded and hidden behind a door. Because you never know when you might need two extra chairs! Note: they are like siamese twins and cannot be separated. Must be bought as a couple.||SOLD|
