hello discerning seller
this is home sweet home to our buyers.
not just any old buyers mind you. but the crème de la crème of buyers. buyers par excellence. buyers who are happy to sell their entire inventory of vital organs (apart from the one that contains their buyer knowledge) to finance our collecting habit. these are buyers that studied at the university of buying, and came away laden with honours of distinction - 360 degrees between them proves they’re all-round experts. indeed, these are the most magnificent specimens of buyer hood. both online and off.
their motto is: all for ‘ones’ and ‘ones’ for all.
so if you want to sell us something... it’d better be both pretty and damn good, or these guys just won’t buy it.
