Now I know how Turpin's eyes got that way........by reading his own handwriting.

Plus a 28 % "Buyers Premium" on top of their undoubted cut from the seller. Lovely people. Shall we lay odds as to this selling?

I think if it was even Valentino they may have a tough sell at what they were asking plus all the BS add on expenses.

Too bad. It would be great if someone could get a hold of it and publish. :(
