On the lookout for ...👀

Fiona from Henderson

Is anyone out there refurbishing their bathroom by any chance and disposing of all the old bathroom decor?
I'm looking for 2 x towel rails about 480-500mm wide please.
They look similar to the pick below, but they don't have to be that fancy. Plain old chrome will do please. Free would be perfect as I don't want brand new ones, they just have to be clean please.
