You could also see if you have a freecycle list near you - it's a great initiative to try and stop things that can still be used going to landfills. I'm on my local one, it's a yahoo group and recently asked for any knitting paraphernalia and got a *huge* box of different yarns and an entire knitting course in folders, for free. You offer any of the stuff you have around that you don't use, even if it needs repairing or whatever. It's a great idea, I recommend it to anyone. My friend almost entirely kitted out her flat with old sofas and bookshelves that were perfectly useable.
