    Hey Guys,
     
    Just a quick introduction from myself to this great community.
     
    I'm a massive metals fan.  I have been in love with silver for a long time.  Would consider myself more of a collector rather than a hardcore stacker.  I'm hugely into the 2oz Silver Queens Beasts series & believe it's among the finest Royal Mint has produced.. 
     
    I have lurked enough - it's time to get more involved & contribute were possible.. 
     
     
    Cheers
     
    Jamie

    Where platinum does seem like a logical sense to me is for collectors. Personally I like the look of silver more than gold, but worried (or maybe just paranoid) that silver may eventually tarnish or milk spots may appear. Platinum solves that nicely, as although not as reflective as silver, it will never tarnish.
    Also to note, it is more dense than gold.

    I was taking to the other members, to say not to post in your topic unless they are genuinely interested in your offering. As you are a new member who has literally just signed up, and who doesn't have a photo of the exact items for sale you will likely get a lot of suspicious members posting on your sales topic. So the message was for everyone to give you a chance to upload your photos etc and not to comment on your post as we do not want to discourage any members from trading, even new members  

    Hope that helps to explain @mpp123

    Not sure what will happen after brexit, I am sure everything will work itself out eventually and we will have some trade deals and be able to import without VAT from the EU, to be honest I’m not really following it a lot and don’t know, I could be completely wrong, guess will just have to wait and see.
    Doesn’t hurt to stock up a bit (within your means, don’t go mad) before we leave, as we know right now there isn’t any charges.
    If there is VAT after brexit on silver imports from the EU might make sense to start buying preowned silver without VAT or switch to gold.

    Nooo i love it! I went to 6 different countries last year (7 if you include the vatican). And all over this country on various trips which were great.
     I spent a good few years with my head purely focused on work and not much else and its a relief and a release to be able to go and experience something new.
    If thats how you feel about travel id say just try something/somehwere new! Its not all about sandy beaches OR traipsing around some boring foreign museum!
    Each to their own though!

    ChrisSIlver got a reaction from caloundracats in Anyone feelin inflation take a bite out of their ass?   
    In regards to the supermarkets and vegetables, I do understand that there is some demand for convince and people willing to pay a little extra for it. Especially now that everyone is in a hurry it seems. Cheese (I know not a vegetable but anyway), some people are willing to pay extra to have it pre-grated, whilst others feel it is a complete waste of money.

    I do feel that it may have gone a little too far though, I don't see any advantage of 3 wrapped onions, irrespective of the price. Most people picking up these onions likely aren't even looking at the price, or just taking a quick glance just seeing that 95p is less than £1, but not even thinking hat one is priced per KG and actually better value for money. 

    There was a program the other day about the plastics used in fruit and vegetables, and how that that over the years it has increased. I think people are now more aware of the plastics and there is more of a shift by companies to try to reduce plastic waste, so hopefully we may see a move back to when all fruit and vegetables are sold pretty much loose (bar a few items that actually do need some packaging i.e. soft fruit such as raspberries)

    I've been fascinated by the idea of buying some platinum for almost a year now, and have spent quite a bit of time tracking and studying its price during that time, read most of the posts on the SF about this metal, spoken to a few members who have more experience than I do, and after all this I finally decided to buy...…..
