  1. Wow it’s funny what you see on eBay, isn’t it?! Apparently someone recently sold a ‘jar of air from the Stone Roses gig at Etihad stadium’ for quite a few thousand! It had an ‘authenticity certificate’ too!

  2. I’m off now to rummage through the wardrobe for worn tights. £300! I thought it was odd enough when I sold a bundle of worn maternity bras for about £20.
