I cannot understand why someone on ebay (see link or search ebay for national frames) would pay £25 plus 5.20 postage for ten SN1 flat frames without foundation

arent they about a tenner, or am i out of date?
Bid fever................

They are £10.63 for 10 in the flat from Thorne's - £29.68 assembled.

Some people have more money than sense. But not everything is a bargain on Ebay.

You're out of date :) but that's nothing to do with Ebay prices.

Not so much bidding madness,more like a complete lack of any form of intelligence whatsoever.Perhaps its not the whole story.

Well,its life Jim,but not as we know it.

Books, too, are an area where one could pay more than,say, Amazon delivered - whether new or second hand.....

it goes right across the board with ebay. OH has been looking at various fishing reals on ebay they are selling secondhand for more than you can buy new ones. In my opinion if people dont research what they are buying then more fool them. so long as the item is what it says on the box, no problem. I recently bought a cd and am 99% sure it is copy, that isnt the issue its the fact that i bought it with the impression that it was new and original.

Remember ignorance is profit.

So often used in the computer industry.

We bought a small livestock trailer 3 years ago new for £1100 and sold it last month for £1200 on ebay and the guy did an 800 mile round journey to pick it up. :svengo:

I have being fascinated by auctions since I was 10 when my grandmother took me to my first auction a live auction is still a great place to be but it makes people from time to time loose it and you see them they know it has to be the last bid but they must bid again. At first they want a bargain then they WANT IT and then they MUST NOT BE BEATEN
