I had an idea the other day about making a way for people to share stuff they own but don’t use a lot, tools, DVDs, etc. Enough local people have expressed an interest that I have decided to try to make it happen.
Hopefully, I will be sending oh-so-exclusive invitations to interested people who live in/near Conwy County by the end of the weekend. Hooray!
I think that most people have a decent amount of stuff like tools and DVDs and books that they don’t use that often and would be happy to lend out to friends and people they trusted. The biggest obstacle to this seems to me that people don’t have an easy way to tell each other what stuff they are happy to share. The obvious place for a here’s-what-I-have-to-share thing is online. Do you know of anything like this that already exists, or does it still need to be invented?
