    I know it's a long shot, but we're doing a refurb. Does anyone know where I can get some?

    Either way, it looks like a real basket case...

    It was worth having a bit of a larf - particularly as it was at someone else's expense! He he.

    I'll admit that I was half expecting it to get pulled with the rest of the little spammer's efforts. :) Clearly Spike was on the ball!

    Now, if only there was a way of finding a purveyor of fine rattan original furniture...

    Just ask... and you can rely on some smart*ss to provide the information from the plethora of dross on the intertubes. ;) :ban:

    Purveyor of fine rattan original furniture :)

    It was the images of the rattan pedal cycle and the rattan motorcycle which served to indicate that this was the very finest of purveyors of rattan goods. Clients would have their most outré rattan requirements dealt with by staff among whom customer satisfaction and complete confidentiality were bywords.

    No card payments are permitted here... nothing that would provide the merest hint of a client's address. (JBR would never get sufficient evidence to start an operation to stamp out feral rattan purchasers) The payments would only be accepted as folding, placed in discreet little brown bags provided by this veritable emporium of rattan, whereupon the brown-coated, nimble and silent, customer advisor, would place the consideration into a greased opaque vessel, constructed at great cost to fit an under the counter vacuum tube... and all of the evidence would disappear from view with a soft sigh.

    My rattan SLS has been on order for a while now... the aged craftsmen are devoting some additional time for the gull-wing door mechanisms, which were described to me as 'challenging' but I am assured that my purchase will be ready in time for the Olympics... in 2048 :D
