No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

Looks like alabaster to me, are they thick? Fairly modern design.

unless you really like them and have a use for them, I suggest you put them back in the bag and drop them again. These were made yesterday in Romania - and you might develop a dislike sooner or later. I know I did!

Hi Steve, I'm sure these are still on sale in Focus DIY - I saw some around Christmas. Definitely contemporary. Incidentally quite often seen second-hand in our local Age Concern warehouse too.

Hi Steve,
if you want to replace the broken one, you might try B & Q or Homebase!

Cheers
Andy :D

I thought you'd say that ! ;D  The Age Concern ones are usually cheaper...  I'm sure others will appear at a low price for you. :)
