Coming Soon - Market Jigsaw Exchange


Coming Soon - Covid permitting

Like a lot of people, I have recently been doing a lot of jigsaws and have decided to open a Jigsaw Exchange stall on the Kirkby Lonsdale Charter Market, every Thursday.  By opening a jigsaw exchange we can offer a cost effective and environmentally friendly way of always having another jigsaw to do.  There will be new jigsaws available too.

To get the jigsaw exchange up and running we need some pre-owned jigsaws, if you have any jigsaws you would like to sell to us please message me or email 

We are offering £2.50 for 1000 piece and £1.50 for 500 piece puzzles. 

How does it work?

Simply bring your pre-owned 500 or 1000 piece jigsaws to our market stall on Kirkby Lonsdale Charter Market every Thursday and get credit towards another pre-owned jigsaw.

Jigsaws will be priced at £3.50 for a 1000-piece and £2.50 for a 500-piece jigsaw.

The exchange rate will be £2 for a 1000-piece and £1 for a 500-piece jigsaw.

So, bringing in a jigsaw to ‘exchange’ like for like is only going to cost you £1.50!

You can bring in your pre-owned jigsaw and get credit against another, but you must use the credit note within 4 weeks (subject to the market being open).

What about missing pieces?

Obviously, we cannot 100% guarantee all the pieces are in these jigsaws, but they are brought into us by other Jigsaw Puzzlers who love doing jigsaws and know how annoying it is when you complete a jigsaw and find a piece(s) missing.

So, inside the lid of each jigsaw that goes out from us, is a ‘missing’ piece register, once you have completed the jigsaw, please register if any pieces are missing. If a jigsaw comes back to us for exchange with five pieces missing, we will withdraw it from sale/exchange.
