    I second that HEARTILY Barry!

    It is one of the manifold reasons why we will NOT allow any high end machines that we aquire to go back into private hands - we only ever donate to large recognised public bodies who will use them for preservation purposes.

    We will abosolutely NOT allow any private individual (flippers as they are known on Ebay) to prophit from our equipment aquisitions or disposal.

    Sales of machines that we approve are priced appropriately to negate any third party prophit.

    Unlike many "chancers" we have major contacts in what was once a well respected industry that has now been sadly decimated both by progress and greed.

    I only bought one CD for 50p.

    Last week I didn't buy anything audiowise, but I did buy a jar of Marmite and a stainless steel kitchen sink complete with faucet!

    It's the marmite that gets me. Who sells jars of marmite at a boot sale? I'd also ask who buys it except we already found that out.

    Yes - sellers of new cosmetics frequently appear at bootsales. As do vendors of pet food.
