What can I do with old coffee mugs which I don't want any more? We unpacked the final box out of storage today, and we must have over 50. We use about 6, and I'm willing to keep about another 6 for visitors.

I don't want to throw them in the trash. The recycling place doesn't take ceramics. Some of them have commercials on the side so they can't even be given to charity shops. We have all the pen pots we need.

Any ideas?

Garage sale? Freecycle? Ebay? Craigslist?

My first thought was donate, Salvation Army or Goodwill.

You could also break them and make stepping stones.

why can't they be given to charity just because they have an ad on them?

If you swipe over the surface with meths will it take the ad off?

I would hand the over to the local op shop, goodwill, whatever, how about pop them in a box at the church fair with free to a good home sign on them?

I agree,Goodwill, or maybe a homeless or battered women's shelter - I would think they would accept anything they can get. . . No matter what it says on the side. I bet your parish would have an idea. . .

A shelter or drop-in centre would certainly appreciate them (regarless of the logos).

I found those too G - and another one this morning about painting them with porcelain blackboard paint. Now if I could only find that paint, my problem would be solved!

You can indeed, but it isn't durable for ceramics unfortunately.

Meths = methylated spirits. Nothing to do with drugs.
