Brabantia Cash Box: £2
Yes, Ted has bought yet another beautiful, well-made, solid, metal, high-quality cash box which is in excellent condition, and it has actually got a key. What is more, it has got the plastic tray inside, too! What a bargain!
Ted will be able to use it to hold the coins he needs to take to the next car boot sale. For security, he will be able to use one of his other cash boxes to hold the key to another cash box which will hold the key to this one – all he has to do is remember where the key is.
Old Framed Print: 50p
The print had come from a house clearance, and the frame and back were very well made, albeit rather the worse for wear – but there was no woodworm.
Ted wanted to hang it on the stairway, but his wife said that the colours weren’t right (she understands these things), so Ted has hung it in his study.
It is possible, thinks deluded Ted, that it will be worth millions in years to come.
Box of Fridge Magnets: £2
He has sorted through them and found over 400 relatively small letters, digits and shapes all of the same style, and a further couple of dozen extra large ones. These large ones have been passed on to a charity shop, and the rest have joined some similar ones, and so Ted now has over 600 letters, digits and shapes all of the same style.
He will now be able to make words like dermatoglyphics, honorificabilitudinitatibus and pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.
