"A VERY OLD SINGLE MATTRESS IN ATTRACTIVE STRIPES -RARE?"

Well, I can't SEE any stains, but still...
Do you enjoy gambling? Like a little flutter on the horses/dogs/budgies?
This has got to be the next big gambling sensation, surely? Have you ever considered buying a particularly old second-hand mattress before? Why not take a punt and if you’re unsure, you could always try to convince yourself that you’re an antiques dealer rather than someone who buys second-hand bedding.

“A RARE FIND! I WOULDN’T THINK TOO MANY MATTRESSES OF THIS AGE AND IN THIS CONDITION ARE AROUND TODAY. THE BED IT CAME OFF WAS EDWARDIAN AND I RECKON THIS IS OF THE SAME VINTAGE.”

I have clothes from the turn of the century. Doesn’t mean I’m from the turn of the century, does it?

“I ALSO HAVE A SIMILAR ONE IN BLUE STRIPES WHICH WILL BE LISTED SEPARATELY”

They’re so rare you have two then, huh?

    I’m sorry, but are those hands holding up the mattress wearinggloves? Or it could be socks. Or an albino burn victim – whatever, it really doesn’t boost confidence.

    Gloves for sure. Scary sleeves too. I believe it may be a clown or possibly a mime. Standing outside. On a red carpet. Holding a mattress.
    Jolly good then.

    Also, looks like they’re a lumberjack.
    I don’t know what this adds/distracts from the main point but it’s my observation nonetheless so you’re having it.
    There!
