old wounds

All that thinking about stereos reminded us of one of our first big ebay win ...

Back in early '07 we fought and struggled and won ourselves a vintage Canadian Electrohome stereo ... all set to come all the way from Seattle. We paid up (a little too much for a record player, but the plan was to forgo all other comforts) and waited and waited ...

After nearly 4 months the seller swore it was returned to them as we didn't exist ... curiously they weren't interested in offering us a refund, or sending it again.

We were pretty sad, and warn against bidding on 'tipyourwaitress' auctions in future ... but have since picked up a battered old Weltron ... one day she'll be up and running, and the void will be filled. Cool unit though.
