    I know exactly what you mean Paul. I also have clients that contact me and tell me "it's a simple job that will only take 5 minutes". That's code for do it almost free, my stock answer is if it's such a simple quick job, why don't you do it yourself.

    I don't take quick simple jobs anymore. After i see for myself what's involved I prepare a quote and I have a minimum charge too.

    There’s nothing so common as the word ‘rare’ in an eBay straight razor auction description….

    This thread was enjoyable to read gentlemen. Thanks to all the contributors.

    I personally had given up on searching eBay for hidden gems, but perhaps I should try again if for no other reason but a good laugh.

    My favorite was when I was looking for vintage stereo gear (one of my other passions) about 10 years ago when vinyl records were getting red hot again. Some goof had a W.T. Grants record player 8 track FM radio combo with one missing speaker. It looked like something he found in the garbage and thought he hit the motherload. His intro line was "NON FUNCTIONAL BUT HIGHLY COLLECTABLE STEREO WITH RECORD PLAYER!". And he only wanted $750.00 on a buy it now. I laughed so hard I started choking. I should start looking for razors and supplies again to see if I can get another good chuckle, but it would be hard to top that whopper!

    These days I just look to see what's out there. I'm not out to buy. The same seller had a non functional Chips tv show helicopter toy for $269.95 or best offer. Everything the seller has is ridiculously priced.
    Some people think they really have something!
