Here are some ways to dispose of items that for some reason you cannot take to a charity shop
I like using this. It’s amazing what some people will appreciate! e.g. I had two cricket helmets which I knew had been hardly used but charity shops are not allowed to sell. I took a photo, posted the details, received a couple of email replies, picked the most convenient one and left them by our back gate on a certain afternoon for collection. It’s aworldwide group designed to keep useable items out of landfill. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers and membership is free.Have a look at the posts to see the sort ofthings that are offered or wanted.
If you have special items to sell then eBay can work for you. Once you understand the system it is very simple but you have to be prepared to link it to a PayPal account, reply to sometimes annoying questions during the period of the auction (usually 7 days) and package your item up shortly after it sells. eBay do help you with this by providing a simple postage guide with discounted prices and at a click will print off the address label with the postage already paid. You choose the price to start the auction at, although eBay do suggest a price based on previous sales. When the item sells,eBay take 10% of the sale price
You can call the council 0300 456 0102to arrange for a collection of a single large item from outside your property.The current charge is £25.30 per item.
Generally you expect the person to come and collect as you don’t want to get involved with delivery. I tried registering and it’s very easy. It has the advantage over eBay in that it is free. ‘For Sale’ ads remain active for 30 days
Sometimes these are the best solution. We had a very large mahogany display cabinet which we sent to Netherhampton. Big old brown furniture does not sell well but the sale did at least cover the cost of the man with a van to get it there-as the auctioneer told us it would http://www.salisburyauctioncentre.co.uk/netherhampton-salerooms/
or Wooley and Wallis.
I don’t know anything about the antique shop in Catherine Street but here are the details
