eBay Watch: Space age Pac-A-Pic picnic box

Space_picnic
For once, I’m not recommending you buy an item from eBay – I’m recommending you buy it elsewhere.

I’ve just spotted this space age Pac-A-Pic picnic box on eBay – and it’s an item we own ourselves, having bought one in the past few weeks. It’s a really smart stacking picnic set in a great retro orange colour, British made and dating back to the 1970s. Each layer contains plastic boxes, a plastic glass and cutlery – the idea being that you can stack extra layers depending on the size of your family, with the whole unit held together by expandable cords.

Now here’s the good part. We’ve seen "as new" stock of these in Sue Ryder charity shops for £4 and £5, depending on the size of box you choose. The price of the one on eBay is £29 – with none of that money going to charity. I think you know where to go.
