A bathroom window shutter is now up for sale for £6,500
This one looks pretty great, right?
Not for the first time.
The original, built in 1969, was put up for auction by a British builder in London, who claimed it was too expensive to keep.
“I’d spent all my money on it, and I’d spent a good bit more than £2,000,” the builder told The Times.
So he put up a claim on eBay for £3,500.
So what is the deal?
It was built by John Hall, a British-born American-based builder who made the original “house window shutter” in the 1970s.
John Hall has said that he wanted the shutter to be a permanent fixture of his house in a small rural community in Scotland.
And he wanted to pay the seller a reasonable price for it.
He said that the shutter was worth £6.6m, which is the current asking price for the shutter.
The auction house is currently asking £6K for it, which might seem like a bargain for such a large item.
But it’s a bit of a stretch to say it’s fair value for the property, according to the seller, Richard Patey, who says he paid the seller £1,600 for the item.
“It’s not a good deal,” Pateer told The Guardian.
“He didn’t have a lot of money. “
He paid the price that he thought was fair.” “
He didn’t have a lot of money.
He paid the price that he thought was fair.”
It’s not just one of the best window shuters ever built that we’ve heard of, it’s the very best!
