Just so you guys know what it's like here in the dear old UK, recent rules and regulations regarding safety certification now forbids (or makes practically impossible) the sale of anything that is or might have contained fuel, including stoves and lanterns. I purchased a SIGG clone from such a place ONLY because they had no idea what it was and the box made it look like it might be a foot pump! Electrical items now have to be so rigorously tested that most charity shops (thrift shops) don't bother as there's no-one trained and available to perform the tests. I was given a brand new Dualit toaster last year because it failed the test procedure so many times they gave up! I only got it because they know me and they put it aside. Electrical table lamps and floor standing lamps now have to have 2 certificates.... one for the plug end and one for the light end! There was a time when I really enjoyed mooching around charity shops seeing what I could find but now all I see is books, clothes and trinkets... plus a few pots and pans, but not cast iron ones because 'nobody wants them so we throw those in the skip'! Oh, and just last week I heard that at least one UK charity organisation now crams all the stuff they cant sell into containers and ships it all out to the US. So next time you guys over in the States find yourself in a thrift shop or any other junk shop/rummage sale, think of us. We'll be here looking through racks of second hand shirts and outdated trousers. Bloody marvellous!
