Hi

Just been having a quick search on ebay, and this just proves my point that people over charge on there!
I belive it to be Thones themselves opperating a shop on ebay, but there prices are higher than buying direct.
Their bees on a budget kit is being sold on ebay for ?300

But the same pack from them direct is only ?234.

The only thing i use Thornes for is 4.9mm foundation.



Is there another supplier in the UK that sells 4.9mm foundation?

Buyer beware!

Why people still think that stuff on the net should be cheaper beats me.

Why was it?

Well once upon a time it was a very scary thing to buy on line so vendors made it cheaper to entice the scardy cats to make the jump.

Now, well it's a huge market place and of course some seek to take advantage of the rep it has for being cheap.

The usual head ups apply, double check the prices!

Oh and by the way since when were Thornes ever cheap?
