Wooden Box: 50p
Yes – after many weeks of rained-off car boot sales, Ted has purchased a beautiful wooden box for just 50p. He had decided that £1 would be the maximum price he’d pay, but when he asked the seller how much he wanted for it, he and his wife both said, “50p – we want to get rid of everything.”
It was, in fact, a box for slides and had plastic guides in it, but Ted soon ripped those out to expose the lovely box that it is.
What a bargain!
Les Dawson Book: 10p
Anyway, Ted picked up this humorous tome for 20p (he couldn’t be bothered to wait for the change) and cackled while he waited for the bus back home.
Les Dawson was one of the few comedians who was able to refrain from coming out with a barrage of smutty jokes.
Tornado Annual: £1
Always on the lookout for a bargain, Ted snapped this up in an instant.
It’s full of stories and comic strips from TV programmes, like Bonanza and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
