The junk shop on Cliffe Bridge

Rarely in my life have I hated a business so much.
They don't even need security as the bovine scatology they sell loses all of its value the second it leaves the shop.
One of the most cynical "businesses" I have ever seen, run by a pony-tailed spiv.

Hu? You're talking about the antiques shop I'm assuming? You have the right to a refund if required so why not... get a refund?

They sell stuff which you can buy or not buy. They inflate their prices because they need to make a profit. There isn't a business in the world, large or small, which doesn't work to the same principle. Your hatred therefore seems a bit odd.

Cuz they're the original DFL's (1970's) originally in Alfriston.

@Socialist , did you buy something you regret ? did anyone make you go in there ? ( apart from Mrs Socialist who probably likes the rusty table she bought using your money ) . And seriously ! If it's even true ? It bothers you that someone has only lived here for 40+ years ? you have major issues if that's the case . .Also I guess living in such a middle class capitalistic town as Lewes must really trouble your socialist mind . May I suggest you move to some where with a British Home Stores , I think you'll find their style and prices much more appealing to your taste and narrow mind set .

I have never bought any junk from the place and never will.
However I am actually aware how profit works, as well as when it becomes excessive. If people really have that much money they don't need they could be giving it to charity rather than a shyster who sells rusty buckets for 50+

No need to insult the shopkeeper. Value is dictated by the buyer, not the seller. I take the fact it's a viable business selling what they do as a sign of a massive patholigical stupidity of shoppers of the kind that literally beggars belief rather than any ill intent from the shop.

You sound lovely socialist, what a gem Lewes has in you. Giving shop keepers a hard time, really? Have you nothing else in your life to concern yourself with, but then again your politics is outdated & finished. I guess someone has to bear the brunt of your frustrations! How dare any shop make a profit...tut tut.

Straw man arguments much? Shop keepers are not above criticism. Why should they be?
And by the way, if my politics is finished, how come Socialism was okay when it came to rescuing the banks?
