Hello all, and good wishes.
On one of the area Facebook pages, someone was asking if anyone had an electric fire for sale.
Well, I have a rather nice little woodburner type one that is no longer needed, so I responded with a description and a price.
She asked for a phot, so I took one and uploaded it.
So far, so good.
She then posted "Where are u 2?" ( Devonian for "Where do you live?" )
I told her, and she replied that it was a bit too far to come. Fair enough.
As I now had a photo, I listed the fire on 3 more local Facebook sites, and got a few responses, which was encouraging.
Then the following day, the person who had posted the "want" got back in touch to ask if I would reduce the price because they would have to travel to collect it!
So, by her reasoning, I should be able to phone (for example) Harrods and say "Id like to buy something from you, but as I live a long way away, can I have it half price?"
