I find that I’m doing most of my clothes shopping on eBay these days. I have to do it on line anyway, as Stratford is innocent of shops that sell what I want to wear, so why not do it where the prices are usually lower and the choice much less predictable?
I just bought a green cashmere sweater for fifty bucks. Now I must go through the chest of drawers to make room for it — a good opportunity to shed the acrylic sweater I got for Christmas and never wear because it’s so loosely knit that the cats would ruin it immediately.
SRS, versions of that property scam flourish around here, too — and for similar reasons. Driving back from London the other day, I spotted signs along Highway 7 announcing “Jonny Buys Houses — Cash!” Yeah, said I to Himself, for ten cents on the dollar with immediate intent to flip. Wait till Jonny finds out that Perth County farmers are probably the sharpest wheeler-dealers this side of Wall Street.
