Subject:The last few day's bagains (I hope)
Time:11:56 pm
An action sequence camera - the type that takes 4 pictures on one frame of 35mm film. Paid £2, already bid up to £5.50 on eBay.
Two more Helios 58mm f2 camera lenses, both in reasonable condition. Paid £10 each, should sell for £20+
An optical slide copier - cost £2.50, should sell for a good deal more. The last one I had was in crap condition and sold for £8.
A couple of 100-sheet packs of laser labels - A4 1 label per sheet and 8 labels per sheet. Useful for me.
Another 17" iMac G4, with speakers. Cost £35, should sell for over £100 when I've shoved in a bigger hard disk and RAM etc. and added some extras and software.
A HUGE jar of Hayward's Pickled Onions for £2. Nommmm...
The complete House MD S8 for £1
3 Stargate SG1 DVDs for £1 the three
And a copy of a 1950s paperback, Easy Home Chemistry For Boys by P.T.Oram B.Sc., for 50p, which promises to provide endless hours of health and safety fun.

The 1950's was an era of fun home chemistry. Not a huge emphasis on safety. Explosions galore!

Yup. The first thing I saw when I opened it at random was a "make your own hydrogen chloride gas" experiment that would need a fume cupboard (and MUCH better glassware etc.) to meet current safety standards.

It's amazing how much streaming tv services have degraded the value of DVDs.

Yes - but a few years down the line old shows may not be readily available, so when I see them that cheap I snap them up.

Yep, I totally agree. I do this too. IT just rankles when I remember how much I paid for my Buffy boxed sets.
