Diamond free Ads, formed in June 1993, is now known as the Ad Trader and is a weekly 'yellow' paper currently costing £1.30 and available from your newsagent on a wednesday.

Diamond Freeads is a weekly newspaper that allows you to sell virtually anything free of charge. This is published all over England in regional editions. The majority of adverts in our Thames Valley edition are within a 30 mile radius, when you find what you're after it should be reasonably local. For buyers the paper is very well laid out, making it easy to find the item. There are a series of main categories such as transport,household, family,services etc. Within each of the main headings a subsection allows for quick reference. The adverts in each are set out alphabetically. There's also a complete listing of headings on the back page. ... Read the complete review

My daughter is 9 and seriously thinks that money grows on trees. She is not a spoilt child, but just has no concept what so ever of how much things cost. I suppose its my fault for always giving in to her requests for things. But she is such a good girl and always so polite and thoughtful I find it hard to refuse her anything. A few months ago she came downstairs and told me and he dad that she would like her bedroom done out for Christmas. I was quite surprised by this as it has only been two years since we last decorated her room but on the other hand I could see the logic, as her room was decorated in bratz, which was no longer cool at ...

Diamond Freeads. A regional yellow newspaper full of private advertisements. Costing £1.10, this paper is released on Wednesdays. I have been a fan of the Freeads for many years. Whether just browsing, or actively seeking a specific item, there are advertisements for anything that it was ever possible to buy or sell. Organised in an orderly manner, the sections are easy to find with the aid of the listing guide, and each section is split into for sale and wanted categories. Although the paper costs £1.10 for the reader, it is free to advertise your unwanted items. There are charges for trade adverts and puppies (If I remember ... Read the complete review

Environmentally sound, Freeads does much the same as freecycle (the webbased site that allows people to recycle) but rather than giving and collecting things for free, you can sell or buy objects that have more value. The web based version of Freeads makes everything instant, but there is a definite old-style joy in wading through a traditional paper - particularly one such as Freeads where you can find anything from a secondhand sofa for £20 to a 5 bedroom house for £400,000. Slightly less bargainous on the housing pages, perhaps?! The paper also features jobs, particularly of the casual variety as well as pets and collectibles. The car section often features far more ..
