Thanks for that John.

There is usually something that catches my eye, but a bit of a disappointing selection this time.
By the time you add on the commission, together with the bad exchange rate the $ price is nearly the same as £

I got $1.26 this morning. Hardly a 'bad exchange rate'.
(Unless you can remember the 5/- Dollar!)

PS. I'm UTTERLY amazed that Exhibit Supply Co. copied the Bryan's 'Nudist Colony'!

I have some tentative plans; I don't think they use the US Dollar in Wroxham or Great Yarmouth, though.
