A car boot sale
Save time and money by taking part in the virtual car boot sale.

Every Wednesday, Louisa Hannan gives you the chance to get rid of your unwanted items and help someone else.

If you have got something that is too good to throw away or you are looking for something but cannot find it, BBC Oxford may be able to help.

Here you will find a selection of some of the items that are on offer or wanted this week in Oxfordshire.

To get an item or offer one for free, listen to 95.2FM on Wednesdays at 11am and call 08459 311111.

Items cannot be sold and must be in full working order. No money changes hands and it could make a big difference to someone.

It is a way of recycling Oxfordshire's unwanted items and saving the landfill. Find out how it works here and how to take part.
