I paid full price last year too. Oh well, that's how it goes. I'm viewing it as a donation to ABA. I certainly tried to do my bit for MD revenue last year!

I am considering it but I reckon its resale value would be poor.

not necessarily - newcomers to aba may be keen and second hand will be their only option

I'm responsible for nabbing the last Brisbane one... :wink: (albeit at the first of the sale prices - not the super, super reduced one). Tbh I don't care too much about resale - for me it has personal significance, which I'm glad Penguin pointed out to me in no uncertain terms. Quite the salesperson! :lol: It will also get a lot more use than a similarly-priced pram might, for example.

Do I sound like I'm trying to justify my purchase...much?
