    Would you split the jigsaws and, as they’ll be a smaller package, ship them?

    With it being close to Christmas i would have thought these would make an ideal donation to a children's charity that will wrap and distribute them to children to help put a smile on their face.

    If you don't mind finding a charity that does this with a drop off centre near you and drop them off i'll give you the £30 and cover any expenses you incur.

    PM me if this is agreeable.

    That’s a generous offer

    I will find a local children’s charity and drop them off and update the thread

    No needs to cover any expenses as I never thought of a children’s charity to be honest

    Do u think they will take the large jigsaws???

    Hi

    well went to social media as to be honest i dont know of any children charities around here.

    Some kind lady replied she works at a place where childrens social workers are placed and they have "contact rooms"

    Apparently its where children go to have supervised contact with their parents and also children with learning difficulties go....so i think that is a decent place to take the stuff

    They dont have any use for the large jigsaws but everything else will be delivered next week. Any jigsaws 500pcs and above i have kept and "gender wars" as i dont think thats the kind of games they play!!

    I will write down the exact list later on.

    I have just uploaded a picture of what i have left but noticed the "picture map of Europe" - that will be included too

    If your still interested i will get the items weighted and a postage quote but i think the postage will kill the price tbh.

    If you pm your postcode i can let u know

    Thanks

    Mark (its all greek) has kindly paid for the games to which i am extremely grateful for.

    All further sales on the jigsaws / puzzles - 100% of the funds received will go to MacMillan Cancer Support

    Now the bundle is not so big i could possibly post the items out at cost or you can arrange your own courier if its suitable

    Thanks guys

    I was just looking for jigsaws but they’re for my elderly aunt so I only asked as I doubt she’s interested in game of thrones but cats, bring it on!!! I’ll have a look tomorrow when I’m sat at my desk, for some reason my iPad keeps logging off the image when I try and zoom in to see what’s what.

    Hi

    sorry for the delay but been a bit hetic today.

    The whole lot weighs about 12-13kg and getting quotes of £12 for a 2 day delivery with parcel force...believe it or not yodel is more expensive!!!

    There are about 13 jigsaws and 4 other items which are puzzles, board game etc

    If i based every item at an average of £1.50, including deliverly the price would be about £37

    Ive tried to keep the costing as low as possible as i want these gone in 1 go. Anything money made off these after postage, will be going to charity as previously mentioned

    Thanks

    You had the lot (41+) items up for £30 so less than half (73p/item) what you're now looking for.

    I thought I might be looking at a tenner for the remaining items plus the same for shipping but not nearly double that.

    So, thanks but no thanks.

    Hi

    The sale was not based on a price per item but a job lot

    Even if i did these go for the 73p per item brings it to £13ish plus the £12ish for delivery it’s still above the estimated £20 inc p&p (and saves me finding a box and taking it to the local depo which is not exactly local!!)

    Your estimation of £20 inc p&p brings the total of about 40p per item which for charity I can take it to a shop and they will get more for selling them there which is better for them

    As I have made what I wanted on the whole lot by the kind generosity of “it’s all Greek” what ever I make selling them here will go to MacMillan, but on the other hand it’s got to be worthwhile. if I don’t sell them here then as they don’t have a local shop I will hand everything over to the local cancer uk charity shop for them to sell

    I am just trying to get as much money for a cancer charity regardless ifs it’s a sale here or hand them over to a shop

    Thanks for the interest, but if there is no interest by the weekend they will be handed over to the cancer uk shop

    Thznks
