Ask for a photo with the door open.

And the other one is from Clicky

Compliment him on his sheer white wallpaper and ask him if he can give you decorating tips.

Thank you so much Badpenny and Pennymachines...
Yes, they're the same pictures. Just got another email from the so called seller - they told me they are in the U.S.A.... Ah.... So I told them my brother lives there and would it be OK if he picked the machines up, so it would save them the cost of shipping them to me... I wonder what story they will come up with now...
Darn - I was really looking forward to buying them.
Scottie.

I don't know about Mr P but I used two free applications.
1) One is part of Google itself. You can download it from Google Chrome Application Shop, when you put the cursor on an image and right click Google starts searching for the image and similar ones world wide.

2) Application called TinEye which is the same sort of thing.

For example if I click on the Forum Logo on this page top right hand corner.
This what TinEye tells me ......

1 Result https://pennymachines.co.uk
Searched over 2.2182 billion images in 0.813 seconds.

I'm sure others know of even more ways of doing this and probably even better?
All very handy, but I still have a drawer upstairs with over a dozen odd socks! :!?!:

Nothing quite as sophisticated with me.
I saw it while researching the mystery (Philip Shefras) Allwin Supremes.
Having found reference to its sale at Cowan's on other sites I used a Google Advanced Search function to pin down the specific sale.
Put allwin supreme site:cowanauctions.com into Google to restrict your search to that domain or site - very useful for sites with inadequate or no internal search facility.

They probably are, as they were both American auctions...

Didn't I see them in Stockport last September?
You know, at Omega Auctions just after
Lot 387: ELVIS PRESLEY - 1977 Jumpsuit Underwear. The briefs were worn on stage in 1977 and appear to be unwashed with some stains apparent...
The underpants didn't sell, but I think your socks did quite well.

Oh-my-god Auctions? I'm not using them again, by the time I paid 22.5% vendor's I ended up paying them, darn it.
