I was in Aldi this morning and saw a stack of 160W solar panels for $169, down from $199. Don't know anything about them apart from the fact that the tag said they were originally around the $500+ mark. They are the 2 panel fold in half type.

Just thought someone might be interested.
State & location would be very helpful for the interested please!

Depends on how well advertised they are; they also won't sell before the auction as that reduces the take at the auction.

We went to look at a HiLux extra cab, 400,000km, 1994ish, 3L diesel, nothing special. Yep, worth a punt - took $4500 for it on auction day, and it went for nearer $6k IIRC. Didn't help that the HJ75 before it went for nearly $10k so everyone was happy to bid it up to get a ute that day.

My experience has always been there are far more overpriced items at auctions than bargains. People get Auction fever and just keep bidding, I remember seeing a TV that was sold in the Kimberley Kampers that went for more than what you could get it new from JB.

IT appears as though they went cheap....

The following 3 vehicles were stolen from a shed between 5:30PM on Sunday 14th June & 8:30AM on Monday 15th June 2020 following a clearance auction in Clarks Road, Whittlesea, Victoria 3757, Australia.
The first vehicle is a white 1969 Ford XW Falcon 4 door Sedan reg 80043-H.
The second vehicle is a white 1969 Ford XW Falcon Ute.
The third vehicle is a patina'd blue/green 1972 Ford XT Falcon Ute.
Thieves cut a hole in the rear of a shed on site before making off with the 3 vehicles & the CCTV system at the location.
Anyone with any info can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at

My experience has always been there are far more overpriced items at auctions than bargains. People get Auction fever and just keep bidding, I remember seeing a TV that was sold in the Kimberley Kampers that went for more than what you could get it new from JB.

Many years ago I went to the Government Auctions to buy a ex lease Commodore and turns out when I arrived I knew the auctioneer. Like always a lot of car yard people there bidding on cars for there yard going back and forth 10-15 times, so then the car I wanted comes up I start bidding but the hammer went down on only the 4th bid which just happened to have been my bid.

Turns out that my bid met the reserve so my mate stopped the Auction. This was pure luck as I didn't know he was working that Auction that day and I'm sure it would be harder to do it in todays world.

Have been keeping an eye out for the Joolca ensuite second hand (decided I liked the older style better) they still seem to still go for close to $200 second hand and don't last long. Then saw RTM still had some stock on clearance for $131 but only in their Caringbah store for click and collect, so managed to organise a courier through Sendle to pick it up, shipping was about $23 but also got 10% off on the Ensuite for signing up to the RTM newsletter, So about $140 delivered.  :cup:

While that is very cheap, no availability makes it a useless offer
