For anyone not familiar with this site – you’re life cannot be complete until you log on to www.donedeal.ie for here you can buy all manner of things SECOND HAND. Yes do you remember in your youth how every town and village, the length and breadth of the country had second-hand bike shops, second-hand washing machine shops and second-hand furniture shops? Where have they gone since the Celtic Tiger roared over our country – online is where!
If you want a new kitten? Want a pet pony? A run-a-round car? New TV cabinet? Want a caravan? Tent? Wedding Dress? Deep Fat Fryer? (best wait til after the wedding I think) Kids bicycle? Heifer in calf? Shetland Pony? A Week in the Canaries? A bikini to wear while there? A Suitcase for the plane? It’s all on Done Deal.
I have become addicted to it. I am surfing it every night last thing before I go to sleep – and you will be glad to know it has paid off. I have bought two red leather sofas for €200. Yes read that again. I bought it from a woman who lives alone and who paid over €2000 for them three years ago. She sits on one cushion on the three seater and they look like new – honestly.
So all I need to do now is get a man with a van to bring them home for me 🙂 And then you could say, if cliché is your thing, that it will be a done deal!!! I am sure there is a support group somewhere for this addiction 🙂
