Hey guys!

I'm writing here asking for help in some way.

My mum managed to sold our house and we need to clear it out. I've lived away for years now and completely forgot that there's two vintage Hoovers hiding away in my family home.

I'm talking about U1104 and the blue 1146. Some of you might remember a 14 year old me writing to you about how miraculously these two wandered into my hands. Now I'm 22, living far away from Poland and in desperate need to find a new home for these. I don't know anyone here who'd be interested in having these and I myself living in a student flat in London have no space to take them. I have no heart giving them away for scraping.

They are both in great condition, barely used by me and deep cleaned years ago so someone would probably want to give them a nice scrub. Both working. The only deal is the shipping (which surprisingly isn't that expensive). It rounds up to less than 30 quid and arrives to the UK within 3-4 working days so it's fairly alright.

What I might end up doing if no-one is interested in time before March 2018, I could ship these to myself and get someone to pick them up from NW London, however as I mentioned, I have a minuscule room haha!

Should anyone want some sort of a proof of transaction I can put it up on eBay or something for the sake of your peace of mind. Ask away guys! Help out a kid!

I am interested in the Junior U1104, that is, if you’re willing to ship it internationally to the US.

If you are ok with shipping it all the way to Ohio, I have a good spot in my collection for that Junior.
Email me if you are willing to do that.

Wow, I would gladly take it myself, but you probably found new owners.

By the way, as a student, it will be interesting for you to read this, a lot of interesting and useful essays. I am sure that for you it is still relevant.
