What is the going rate to bribe the postie?
« on: May 24, 2013, 06:55:57 AM »
Hi All,
          does anyone know who bought the Whitefriars Large Owl on Light Blue from Selmans yesterday?

I spent the day shopping with my wife for her birthday. Had a nice time. Arrived home at 8pm to find Selmans' spring catalogue in the post. Flipped through to back and WOW! A WF large Owl on LB is rare enough, but for $525 !! Picked up phone after checking web site, BUT it had sold that morning (US time) so about 2-3PM UK time. Apparently came back to UK and I was the third potential buyer.

A bit surprised that Selmans were unaware of the going rate for a WF Owl. Frustrated at being so close, and now contemplating employing the postie to open my mail and ring me if there are any bargains like this one !!!


Enjoy your hunting.
