Recently on eBay, a coffin prop appeared and then disappeared and I was devestated.

But after it disappeared we contacted the seller why the item was withdrawn.
And after a few minutes on the phone we settled on a deal of £20, I thought yes I have a full size coffin prop.

But it wasn't just a coffin, it was a full size coffin with built in a skeleton that had a PIR sensor that set of lights and sounds, and for only £20.

Building this seperatly would of cost more that £50 for everything and days of labour.

So I think this was definately the best thing ive ever bought off eBay.

So the moral is never just give up on something keep following it up!

He said he didnt take it down, it was removed because maybe someone reported it for some reason, and a reason he doesn't know.

Also there was another coffin on ebay that i was very interested in, it was a metal proffessional coffin but that ended up being sold for £500 so it was a bit out of my price range.

No Euro's here pal...Not yet anyway. We may have been dragged kicking and screaming into the metric system (although most of us older Brits still think in the old measurements, and we still get our beer in pints)! but We're holding on to good ol' pounds sterling while we can!
Last time I looked at the £/$ exchange rate, it was about 1.45, so that would make the £20 Ruggerz paid for his prop around $29 US..A bargain in anybody's language.:):)
