In my local paper

"For Sale - 32 piece set £10 - Tel no XXXXXXX"

It has been in for three days now, and NEED to know what it is!

Dinner set including cutlery or just a huge dinner set.

Ring it!

Bogeyface Tue 23-Apr-13 09:14:13

I am thinking dinner set too, but I am hoping it is far more interesting!

32 piece set, but no mention of what it's a set of? I'd have to ring the number I think grin

My sister said that it might be a serial killer selling his post mortem tools, but as I said at £10 they wont be very good quality grin

Might just be a fast sale grin

You have to ring. Watch it be a ratchet set.

I really need to know what this is so I can judge whether £10 is a bargain or not grin

Chickened out of ringing. Texted "Hi, I saw your ad in the XX and wondered what the 32 piece was made up of. Thanks"

Got a reply straight back "Is this a joke?" I said "No, it just didnt say in the paper what the set was." No reply so still none the wiser!

Curiouser and curiouser... hmm

SquinkiesRule Tue 23-Apr-13 18:22:08

He's gone off to find his copy of the paper to see what the ad says.
He's goin to feel like a right idiot when her reads it. grin

SquinkiesRule Tue 23-Apr-13 18:22:29

Sorry for all my typos.

SPsYoniTheOneAndOnly Tue 23-Apr-13 18:23:23

What is it?!!!!!!!????!!!!

M0naLisa Tue 23-Apr-13 20:24:39

Hmm I saw dinner service

FannyBazaar Tue 23-Apr-13 20:28:05

Nah, it's a set of alan keys and you can get them at a Poundshop.

GinOnTwoWheels Tue 23-Apr-13 22:01:05

OP at the risk of asking the obvious, is the For Sale section of the paper divided into categories, eg Cutlery, Chess Pieces, Dinner Service etc and is the ad under one of these sections, hence the 'is this a joke' response from the seller?

Googling brings up a variety of suggestions, most of which have been listed by DontSHOUTTTT, but my money's on screwdriver bits.
