So What Happened Next?

First of all a big thank you
to all of you that offered up your advice.

Across the board with Facebook comments
 the blog and the odd email,
It was a 50/50 split
between cautious optimism and don't touch
it with a barge pole.

And so I had to make a decision as to what to do next
with the seemingly to good to be true kiln.

I had tried to contact the seller 3 times
asking if I could go and see the kiln for myself
as the Ebay listing only had one picture of the out side of the kiln.
which to me looked in pretty good condition.

But in the end I put my bussiness head on and decided that why would
I bid on something I know very little about and the seller
seemed very disinterested in selling or even talking to me about it.
I said to Marion
"We deserve better service"
So I sat back and didn't bid. 
Someone else had shown an interest and if I started bidding 
the price would have gone up & it would have made more money for
an Ebay seller that to be honest had
 "Pissed me off by this stage"
I was prepared to pay £150.
(I've put this bit in just in case the seller reads this
and he can see what his lack of communication has cost him.)

So What did it sell for I hear you ask!

£36.00
That's all he got for it

Mind you if one of you guys has bought it and you find it's in good condition inside
you could make a quick buck
by selling it on to me.

Sorry I didn't get in on the comments, I had my own kiln woes this weekend, but I think you made a wise decision, you get what you pay for, as the saying goes!
