I'm selling books, music, children's toys and games and a few bookcases on this page. It's linked to the Facebook page: For Sale, Swap, Giveaway and Wanted in Toulouse, but anyone can buy. Please let me know if you would like to buy an item by leaving a comment on the blog or by contacting me through Facebook. First come, first served, as far as I'm able to work it out with these different ways of contacting me!

Pick up will be from my home, outside Toulouse to the west. I can also arrange pick up times in Colomiers, Aussonne and Purpan from September onwards. If friends from outside of France are interested in some of the lighter items we could talk about postage!

Sue Grafton Alphabet Mysteries, A-U

The first 21 books in the (obviously) 26-book series! These are a fantastic read, if you like 'Murder Lite', or well-written women (the hero is Kinsey Millhone, a young female private eye) or the 1980s, or California... I am now keeping up to date with the later books on Kindle, so no more paper books for me. For comments on the series read the Amazon page here. The whole set for 18€ - I promise they will keep you enthralled for ages, and Kinsey truly becomes a friend for life! For details of book condition see below.
These first ones are more worn because I bought them second hand. Once I got hooked I was buying the newer ones as they came out!

Notes from a Small Island and Neither Here Nor There reserved for RHJ.
Made in American, Thunderbolt Kid and Shakespeare reserved for DB.

Characterful old book case

This faded old wonder has a history: it must have been the top of a dresser and was sawn off way back when - my mum bought it like this in the '80s! All that history and character can be yours for only 6€, but please note from the photos below that it has truly seen life. Sold as seen -sturdy, battered and characterful.

Another exciting job-lot of broken jewellery, hair clips and beads for crafters
