Well, the Rapture didn’t happen, and so Ted was still alive and therefore able to go to yet another car boot sale.
Leather Dice-Holder: £2
Yes, a beautiful, real, thick, hand-made leather dice-holder, just like you see in some movies. What is more, it came with three antique dice (Ted knows they’re antiques because they look old, and the seller did have a lot of antique-looking stuff…).
This item will accompany Ted’s other treasures when he visits Sotheby’s in a few years’ time or whenever he thinks the market is ready. It’s all a matter of timing.
Magic UFO: 50p
Ted opened the box (which contains an explanatory DVD) and read the leaflet which explained the secret.
What a con! 50p down the drain. ‘Science Museum’ indeed! It does, however, contain quite a few pieces of…
Ha! Not telling you!
Two Boxes of K’Nex: £6
What a bargain! Both boxes were full. The seller (and his father) explained that they had sorted the K’Nex into rods, connectors, special bits and manuals, but Ted said that he only wanted the rods and connectors. He didn’t haggle because it was a good price.
They weighed 6.6Kg altogether, excluding the useful boxes.
Two Cigarette Boxes: £2
Once again, honest Ted didn’t haggle because he thought that £1 each was fair.
