We’ve been collecting a few unusual nicnacs recently. My first ever attempt at haggling was on this little fella at a carboot sale in the UK a few months ago. When I asked the owner how much (£1) and then offered 50p, he replied “Do you know how much a cup of tea is here darlin’? It’s a pound. You can’t buy much for 50p these days.” Hanging my head in shame, I handed over my pound coin.
Behind the scenes: I love that Claude instantly came to investigate what I was up to.
