Gumtree’s Utter Clutter Winner

Thursday 12 June 2014, by

Gumtree knows that there’s a few quid worth of clutter in homes all over the country. Research tells us that over 90% of people have up to £1000 worth of unused items in their home – so Gumtree want to help!

We asked you to send us pictures of your clutter and you did not disappoint! There were lots of great entries but there could only be one winner.

Our queen of clutter was Fiona Dallimore from South East London who recently had to move items out of storage and into her home.
thumbnailWe sent our Gumtree Angel, along with a few little helpers, to visit Fiona and help turn her clutter into cash.

Amongst a wide selection of books – including a very nice collection of classics – we found a vintage Singer sewing machine, a wide range of vinyl records, an old television and a large antique cabinet estimated at over 150 years old!

Our angel put all of her unwanted stuff on Gumtree, and it all totted up to an approximate value of over £400! Not bad for a day’s work!

Fiona said, “I’m really happy, and I’m planning on using the money to buy a new cooker! You’ve given me the motivation to get up and sort through the rest of my clutter! Who knows what else I will find!”

So what are you waiting for? Go find your success, and post an ad today!
