What do you call decent?  ;D

Dysons price is 32 (only purple trim ones are left). We couldn't shave much off that for a new one as there isn't much in them, and they cost about a fiver to send as they are over length for the Post Office.

We generally charge 20 delivered for a mint used one. Which is about 14 plus costs. DC03 stuff is getting thin on the ground now and starting to be phased out. It will start to go up in value quite soon as it becomes obsolete.

That may be more than you want to pay, and if anyone has one knocking about they are free to chime in. I only put it out there as an option.

Managed to get a real mint wand of ebay for 10  :thumbsup:

Now rebuilding my second DC03 but unlike the clear one I did before, this one dose not try to commit suicide every time you touch it  :))

 I paid 6 for next day delivery and it was UPS, bit expensive I know but like you said they are getting rare now and I had just missed one that was a few less so didn't want to miss the opportunity.

I meant aggregator. Yes, most places use aggregators: resellers to get good prices. Places like Parcel Monkey or Parcel2go. It will be in weeny letters on the label someplace.
