Wish I was so confident on EBay… I have bought things during the pandemia that never arrived… and when I claimed my money I was not refunded… so it is out for me nowadays… on the contrary I wish I could visit flea-markets or Boot-Sales to find old toy soldiers (no one wants anymore) as a lot of my friends in FaceBook seem able to do!

Here you are… you seemed to like the last Post about it…
