A Clever Way to ‘Re-cy­cle’

Our Canada - - Bulletin Board -

John Brown­ridge of Port Hope, Ont., says, “My old bi­cy­cle was still work­ing fine, but I was tired of it. I put it out on the curb with a neigh­bourly sign read­ing, ‘Free—to a good home.’ A week later it was still there, and I was quite puz­zled as to how to get rid of it. Some­one once told me that lip­stick is ex­pen­sive be­cause no one would buy it if it were cheap. I thought maybe the same prin­ci­ple ap­plied to bi­cy­cles. I changed the sign to ‘$100 or best of­fer.’ It was stolen within the hour!”
