Can someone please explain this?
« on: December 07, 2015, 10:59:31 PM »

Apart from the obvious one of pure greed why the difference in price?

The problem is that I need 2 of these (hopefully as Christmas pressies) but you can't get ebay or Paypal vouchers so it means asking the family for cash...

I think you'll find that the supplier is M&E Store-UK. They have all sorts of very weird items for unimaginable prices on their website. I was particularly taken with the 8m roll of bubble-gum scented duck tape for 24 delivered...
I know - you think I made that one up, don't you? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scented-Duck-Tape-X8yd-Bubble-Fragrance/dp/B00MF1BZHE/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=AOHN76S1YXZGP
Rather begs the question "what does M&E stand for?"

BTW If you want a good laugh, read some of the customer reviews of this product.
