'Items wanted'

Dear All,

Wondering if you can help/advise with this 'indirect' complaint. I am a newbie and can't post in certain areas of the forum yet. I wanted to seach for 'books' that some of you might own and don't mind parting with for a small fee. Having read the 'sticky' in the Market Place section, it turns out I can't post in the 'items wanted' till I have contributed my '10 posts'. Any suggests or past experiences as to where else I might be able to post... ? It always seems a better idea to buy 2nd when possible.

Many Thanks

Natalie

Become involved, instead of posting fluff. No more, no less.

There are Facebook groups for buying/selling. Search one for Switzerland or your area then contact the group admins. They are usually closed groups.

Re: 'Items wanted'

You can search the sections called Items for Sale and Free Stuff for books. If you see something of interest, send a message to the person that posted the ad.

Also it's 10 posts which are *not* in the Marketplace to begin with.

Actually it's 10 posts which are not in MarketPlace or in the Off-Topic sections, which is why the post count is different from the number of posts you actually did.

Re: 'Items wanted'

So a comment on the Brexit thread, which is in Permits/Visas/Governments would score a point?

Perhaps it should be locked or moved ... ???
