Just 15 of the most unhinged items listed on Meadows Share

Anyone interested in some hay?

What is the Edinburgh Meadows Share Facebook group, if not a microcosm of Edinburgh itself? A beloved online forum where citizens come together to help one another, generously dole out belongings free of charge, and sometimes (when we’re lucky) post some of the most bizarre things I’ve ever seen on the internet.

There’s nothing I love more than other people’s business, so I’m not ashamed to admit I spent a fairly good amount of time scrolling through the Meadows Share and Meadows Chat groups looking for entertainment.

So please enjoy this collection of some of the most unhinged posts shared on the group.

1. We’ve all been there

2. Never related to a plant more

3. Finally, a solution to the classic problem

5. Burgurs


7. Read the flamingo themed room next time, thanks.

Nightmare fuel or stunning home decor? Can’t decide

BRB texting my flatmate to see what our lease says about cows

Spotted on his way back from a night out at Hive.

Society is going downhill faster than Rolly did

13. Who wants some expired cheese??

I’ll take a cube!

15. And finally, my all-time favourite Meadows Share post
