Just been in contact with the company , they've refunded me..no mention of picking this one up..
Call them back. If they don’t want it returned, donate to charity with an explanation of the missing screws. Someone will want it and find replacement screws or use it for parts. I guess you could keep it for parts yourself, if you have the room.

No I don't have the space to keep 2 especially one that needs all the fixings.. and no charity here will take it if they can't test it first..same with all Electrical items they must be able to be PAT tested.. I'll hold onto it in case they send me a ntice in the near future that they wish it returned.. but if they don't , I'm not sure what I'll do with it..

I couldn't believe the clothes they had on the 50 cent rack outside at the little long established shop downtown. I got an Eddie Bauer top for winter and a men's shirt I'm going to use for the fabric. But most were too small for me.

All my dishes are thrifted, don't match and I don't mind.

Glad to find another thrifter. I'm not sure how many are on the forum.

Count me in as another junk shop junkie. Sometimes you don't find anything but the fun is in the hunt.

Here in Chatham we have 7 thrift shops and 4 of them are within a few blocks apart. Make the rounds. Going tomorrow.

Oh good! We're lucky to have PAWS and the small downtown one. Both volunteer run and good prices. I bought more this week than I have in a long time. I don't need anything, but you are right, it's fun.

I recently joined a book club and have two of July's selections in transit from another library branch to mine (Peach Blossom Spring by Melissa Fu and Big Lies in a Small Town by Diane Chamberlain).

So while I haven't purchased them, like Holly I'm always eager for new books to arrive.

iTechworld 2000 amp Portable Lithium Jump Starter.

End of financial year sale - Reduced from $350 down to $199.
Going bush without backup is fraught with heartache.
Happened once. Out in the bush, miles from everywhere, got a flat battery, no mobile coverage.
I had to walk miles to find help. No good in the Aussie summer.
