can't ebay stop others from selling stuff like this? The potential for problems if the seller is unscrupulous theres no telling where those frames have been.

I think he may be a bit optomistic, with the postage @ £9.00 they`re pretty much the same price as new ones.

More than 1, numbers seem to go up and down.
Just got the ebay page to stop refreshing ...

The frames are all DN1's (£9.44 for 10) and the foundation is Standard Deep wired (£6.49 for 10 sheets) .

Nice mark up on that auction final bid!

Careful there buster. I may live in Northumberland now but I'm a Tyke born and bred:(
Tyke? Is that what you call a yorkshireman?
I thought it meant a little boy.
I'll have to run that past my Sedbergh born husband....... when he talks to his 87 year old father I can hardly understand a word they say but then I am from London.
Sorry, I know this is nothing about bees so I'll add bee-smillie
