E-bay and bargain antiquities from Museum of Wales

Post by EC2 » Fri October 24th, 2008, 10:13 pm

Just been perusing e-bay in procrastination mode and see that the Museum of Wales is flogging off surplus exhibits and bits and pieces. Bidding for a bracelet of ancient Egyptian beads currently stands at 0.01p sterling plus £4.00 postage.
Might interest some of members here.

Wow. I would have thought that museums would have other avenues for selling stuff off than Ebay!
