    Just wondering would it be a good idea to have a barter thread set up where people can barter there surplus for something someone else may have to swap??

    The oul tax-man would hang your family jewels if he found you discussing such a subversive topic as barter- excellent idea nonetheless.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭ Kevhog1988


    if no money changes hand there is no income…. it is simply trading a worthless item you have for a item of you value of somebody else's.

    I'd be interested in something like this, have lots of stuff hanging around that people might want/need.

    [mod] Go with it lads, if there's more demand we'll look at how to expand it and if not, we'll leave it as it is. Just no illegal items and try to keep it relevant to this forum (no playstations or 02 Octavias ;) ). Items are for barter only in this thread.[/mod]


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭ Kevhog1988


    i have lots of stuff that may be of use… Maybe we could introduce a template for it??

    it would keep it relevant all the time.

    How about:

    <insert picture>

    <insert description>

    <insert what you'd like to barter for>


    Does that work?

    Sounds good to me, can you offer something to barter for W.H.Y.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 15,487 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Tabnabs


    Yes, don't see why not.


  • Registered Users Posts: 219 ✭✭ thehippychippy

    Sure… You could barter work for food


  • Registered Users Posts: 213 ✭✭ isaac azimov


    Lets get things started does anyone have a wind up radio, i had plenty of stuff to trade.:D


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,356 ✭✭✭ stooge


    I have a load of cardboard. Had intended to use it for some purpose but at the moment its lying in the garage taking up space.

    Range from large boxes that used to hold flat packed beds, to flat sheets that were part of wooden floor packaging.

    Might be good for someone looking to line a hen house or use for burning (they are dry) or some other innovative use.

    Willing to listen for swaps for anything really, maybe potted veg or fruit if anyone has spares?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭ Kevhog1988


    Would there be a trailer load mate??


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭ Kevhog1988


    I have some 20l water carriers if anyone is interested. Brand new. Will swap for items of similar interest or any hunting/fishing gear.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭ Kevhog1988

    This is a link to the add i have

    Linking to an advert looking to sell items is not in the spirit of barter thread. Photos are fine, a price tag is not!

    yes too much for a car anyway, i'll try to get a photos and stick it up here tomorrow

    What have you got?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 500 ✭✭ kevc2


    30l fermenter with tap on it, originally from coopers kit. 5 Gallon glass carboy. About 48-50 grolsh swingtop glass bottles. A 40 pint beer kit and a 30 bottle wine kit. Corks, corker, hydrometer, some wine bottles and a couple of other little bits.


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 37,485 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Khannie


    I'm interested in the grolsch bottles. I might be able to get raised planters. I'll check tonight. Failing that, would you consider a swap for some home brew? Say 10 litres of cider? (it's very tasty stuff, even if I do say so myself :)).

    ABV is around 5.5%. It's in 2L PET bottles and already conditioned. Not too dry, not too sweet (less sweet than commercial cider).


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,356 ✭✭✭ stooge


    Photos of cardboard as promised:
    photo_1.jpg


    Have a large roll of good condition carpet suitable for fitting out a second house/outbuilding/garage etc
    photo_2.jpg


    Also a set of patio doors (slight damage to one door leaf due to wind) willing to acept any reasonable offer of trade:
