[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #DC943C;”] B [/dropcap]efore starting Bluestone Magazine, we tested out a few ideas on good old Facebook, just to see what people liked to read. One the most popular was a regular posting of odd, unusual or just plain different ads on Gumtree (the online buy/sell/swap site) from around South-West Victoria, or close by.
So it is only fitting Gumtree gems has found a place in our new venture.
(All adverts are reproduced direct from Gumtree, but some wording may be changed to protect privacy or for editorial smoothness. If you would like to follow up an ad, please do so through Gumtree: although it may not still be listed.)
