Seeing a Dragon 32 on Trade Me with a $100 reserve 3 weeks later; ?@(*ing priceless.
Now I've expressed interest on the auction, I kind of feel obligated to buy it and don't want to disappoint. Plus I think I do have it listed on my wants list on here in expressed in a wee jingle. I was hoping someone else would bid as I'd be buying for the name rather than a particular project interest which someone else might have.
Despite its local rarity, I do like items for sale in NZ to keep in step with overseas prices, and I see the Dragon 32 is quoted in value between 5 and 35 pounds. But that's sentimental thinking as the reality of extortionate postage being the only way to get them here means you invariably have to factor it in. I have been accused of sentimental thinking before. I'm beginning to think there's no place for it.
