    I've put these on Ebay, as I've had no response here. If anyone is interested, please pm me and I can take them back off ebay. If they don't go on ebay, then the tip will claim them.:(

    I understand what / why you have done, (offered them here) but I would suggest you save time and take them to the tip.
    Its a shame to think you are trying to be of use, but no one wants them. In some cases its just that the stuff is too far to collect to be of use. (I also note on ebay there is more rock than you have also for 99p)

    I had some "stuff" on ebay, I binned it in the end as no one wanted it. seemed a real shame.

    Mind you, it could be the gnome putting people off

    The gnome looks like he should audition for the Phantom of the Opera!

    Know what you mean about stuff like that though - I made the mistake of buying a 4' length of kitchen top which then proved to be unnecessary. I've offered it all over the place but no takers. I even asked Nordstrum if they would take it back into their and resell it but they'll not comply!
    So sadly it too will end up in the tip.

    Ebay is a funny beast, I've had a bid within a few hours of listing!?!:scratch:
    Oh well, at least the rocks are going to be of use to somebody.:)

    I know what you mean abou the gnome though, not a personal choice, inherited it when we bought the house.:)
