This Week’s Good Finds: Amp Up Your Downtime

In this week's Good Finds Guide we bring you a few of our favourite finds from summer essentials to the perfect upcycling item.


Garden & patio: a gas BBQ that’s ready for sizzling

The start of summer is here and your grilling days have only just begun. Put that charcoal back in the shed – it’s time for an upgrade. This Weber Spirit gas BBQ is 12 months old but it looks barely used and even comes with a full bottle of gas. It’s clean, rust-free and ready for any type of kebab you can throw at it. Didn’t get to this ad in time? It’s OK, there’s a whole lot more gas BBQs on Gumtree.

Sports & leisure: a swift electric scooter

If you needed an excuse to get outside, feeling the wind in your hair as you zoom around on an electric scooter should be top of your list. You could grab a serious bargain with this Speedway Mini 4 Pro scooter which has a max speed of 46km/h. The acceleration and speed can be set separately for an individual ride as you simply unfold and go. In the words of the seller, ‘banana on your face guaranteed!’ Disclaimer: you’ll have to provide your own banana. If this scooter has already sped away, you can browse loads more electric scooters on Gumtree.

Bikes: a well-kept women’s Raleigh bike

Sometimes you have to get creative when you’re searching for Good Finds and that’s exactly how we came across this bike. Advertised simply as a “ladies cycle”, it’s a real Good Find. This Raleigh Tantrum a mountain bike is in fantastic condition – all it needs is a test run around the block to confirm that it’s ready for some exciting new adventures. Looking for more bikes?

Home & furniture: a versatile chest of drawers

Fancy a project for the weekend? This large pine chest of drawers would be ideal for upcycling. Prime and paint it or sand and stain it – the choice is yours. If you’re not the handy type, this solid piece could go straight into a bedroom or living room as a classic storage option. If this one’s been snapped up, don’t worry, there are plenty more chests of drawers where this came from (Gumtree, of course!).

Sports & leisure: a practically new five-person tent

You might need to use some imagination, but you could be onto a winner with this Outwell Escalon 5 five-person tent – remember Gumtree is full of Good Finds, and sometimes not so good photography 😉. This tent is brand new and unused so you could bag yourself an amazing deal. It even comes with an unused Eurohike carpet for the living area – did you know you could carpet a tent? We didn’t know you could carpet a tent. Whether you prefer your living quarters with a bare groundsheet or covered with an antique Persian rug, you’ll find a massive selection of tents on Gumtree.

Electronics: a Euros-worthy 4K TV

Already hooked on the Euros? Or hoping to upgrade your movie nights? If you’re tempted to invest in a bigger screen, this 65″ LG TV could be just what you’re after. It has a 4K screen and comes with a boxed LG soundbar for even more of a cinema feel. It’s always worth checking out spelling variations of the item you’re looking for – this “tele” could have been easily missed. Sold already? No problem, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to 4K TVs on Gumtree.
