see it - like it - buy it
real bargains usually present themselves for a brief moment and then are snapped up. cash is always king.
If you have to go away to get;
1. money,
2. to think about it,
3. a van,
4. someone to help you,
5. to ask permission
..... and the 'bargain' is still there when you return, then;
a. you were extremely lucky
b. It wasn't really a bargain

Completely true, although in this case they were just belly glasses that were binned. Dozens of them!!! :-(

A maxim I have always found to be true was told to me many years ago is as follows, The tickets of opportunity are stamped valid this day only.

The broken ‘belly’ glasses wouldn’t have been much use. Still on the hunt for an odd machine if one escaped.
