My online purchases are so mundane. Board games, books and the such.

I bought this thing once that was supposed to make sitting more comfortable for my back but it didn't really work but I kept it because sending it back would have cost too much.

Slip trailers

Clay/slip stain

Various pottery related books



Various knitting related books

Various rail related books

We almost bought two old rail station signs on the net yesterday, but decided to go and collect in person.

Unusual enough for you Jean-Luc?

A few years ago we bought a dishwasher online. At the time it was still relatively unusual to do this.

Nowadays it is often easier to buy from Internet than local stores who may not carry the stock. Recent case in point was a new vacuum cleaner where the model we wanted was out of stock at 4 nearby stores.

Ordered it online and it arrived the next day.

I've just bought a "magic" writing pen which acts as a recorder as well - wonderful!
