If anyone fancies a laugh...

The biggest puzzle is how anyone can hope to sell the item for such a price.

Thats just sheer greed I was watching one a few weeks ago the starting price was £14, is sold for- I think £18. Sadly I missed the deadline to bid :(
I always look at the jigsaws in charity shops in the hope that I may find one.

A few months ago there was a Galton & Simpson Steptoe book with a starting price of £180 :shock: When the book came out a few years back I paid the full price £16 from Amazon. I saw one recently in the local secondhand book shop for £1. I was going to buy it but thought no I will leave it and perhaps it may introduce someone to the series.

The thing that winds me up is that these sellers are just out to make money, I doubt that any of them have ever watched an episode of the show :x

A laugh is RIGHT! :shock: Laughing all the way to the bank. But who would buy that? Nice though it is...

Crikey, that's borderline cheeky with that price. Coincidentally the other day I missed out on one with it ending only at £5 on eBay. :?
