The 300th Anecdotal

Speaking to a bloke who's trying to sell his rather lovely six figure boat tells a tale of woe, doom and foreboding about enquiries and values.

Took a trawl through Ebay yesterday a lot of big ticket items on sale in what is beginning to look like distress situations.

Strangely enough there are two Harley Davidsons independently of each other for sale in my locality and I live in a rural area.

A few weeks ago I read that the value of ordinary horses has plunged, as finances tightened,no doubt to be followed by Race Horses.

Anybody else seeing frivolous things being punted pronto recently.

Moneyweek did an article about 6 weeks ago called 'Boats and Horses'; they did research showing the market is awash with both as they are the two things you rid of first when finances are tight - both worth a lot, both cost a lot to run.

I've been watching Ebay, for the first time ever I'm seeing lots of E-Type Jags appearing on E-Bay, same ones that have been stuck on auto trader for weeks. Also fail to reach reserve, a week later re-listed with lowered reserve until sold........its definately getting tight out there for many, reminds me of the late 80s. Glad it will force house prices back to normality, but sad to see people having to start shedding their own goods, not a nice situation to be in.

Funnily enough, a psychic medium I've worked with over the years decided to sell up and move to the country...and open a shop selling horse tack!

I thought at the time that she was choosing a very bad time to get into horses.

Even more surprised that her 'guides' didn't warn her what was happening to the economy!

I do a lot of business over in Southern Ireland, and right now, it's a buyers market for every damn thing like you would not believe. Paddy is flogging the family silver like the devil himself was his loanshark.

If it gets to those stages in the UK (and I think it will soon enough) it'll be the perfect time to dust off the money under the bed and get a big ticket item or two I've had my eye on for a while. Ill wind, but there you are.
