    Would be so funny if it did the classic vending machine malfunction and left the bar half hanging off the vender lol

    I only buy items I am certain is Sterling. No reason you can’t take your scales! I do.

    Hello Tommy. 
    Thought I would give the carboot a visit this morning. There was definitely potential. Any tips on how to gauge how much to pay for something without getting the scales out? Also is all flatware sterling? Some bits had no markings, any tips there? 
    Cheers

    Look for the hall mark if it's 925 it should be sterling or 800 for 80% for eg. Scales out I'd say

    I personally don't touch anything without a hallmark that can be read,if for no other reason than it will make it easier to sell in the future.

    I buy silver at spot from charity shops and flea markets. I picked up a 25g Sterling spoon for 6 pound; 8 florins at 3 pound each and 2 half crowns. 
     
    I also picked up 2 x 45-46g Sterling napkin rings for 35 pound total from eBay.

    I'm new to the scene, so I'm kind of just looking around to buy the few bits and bobs here and there.
    I suppose when you buy on a monthly basis, the ups and downs will balance what you have paid for in the longer run. I guess it just depends on what your individual strategy is

    How’s the silver squeeze going, are we at liftoff yet or around the same price we were in Feb?

    all that has nothing to do with the price and supply/demand of silver/gold on the futures market.
    only those who join in on the price discovery, (buy or sell) need to be counted.
    everyone else can keep on talking. until the price actually moves, it's all speculation.
     
    bottom line is 
    how is the above not a free market?

    I wouldn't touch eBay with a sh*tty stick after the experiences I've had with them. They're an accessory to fraud and nothing is done about them.
    But that's just my opinion.

    Looking at the chocolate bar, if that happened, that would definitely and metaphorically be a "credit crunch"! 😅

    Anyways back in the real world. It may rise a bit, but we’ll likely see a fall back in pricing before then. Maybe a modest 30 dollars an oz by 2030?

    No-one has been to the Moon. They just pretended they did. You can't travel through the Van Allen radiation belt and survive.

    A bit like a yard sale of sorts. 
    As 27carrots said people fill up their car boots with items they want to sell. They drive to a designated place (sometimes a supermarket car park, sometimes a farmer's field), pay an entry fee (like rent) and then drive in, find a spot to park, open the boot and start unloading. They usually bring collapsible tables and such to put things out properly for people to see.
    Other people who aren't selling will then drive there as well, pay the farmer/organiser to enter the site, park up and go hunting for bargains.
    I used to go to quite a few years ago with my grandfather, always loved a car boot sale. Yes there's a lot of tat and junk, but hidden amongst it all there are occasionally things of value being sold by people who don't know what they've got, and often very cheaply too.

    There are several sellers at Cheddar Boot Fair who sell 925 flatware at spot value. They buy at 80% of spot. They've usually got a few grands worth of stock available

    As mentioned already by some other commentators. I would buy what is local to you for as close to spot as you can. For me in the UK that is sovs. In the US it would be eagles. Good luck

    Another thing you could do is save the cash  up every month until you see a good deal or the price drops then jump on it.
