Zebedee Logo Zebedee List 

Issue 327
July 2014



The Zebedee List is a comprehensive list of secondhand balloons and other items for sale for balloonists. It is published monthly and can be obtained either in paper format or here on its web site.

The sudden burst of good summer weather in the UK has tempted many of you into action, with 10 envelopes having been notified to us as sold during June, together with 2 complete bottom ends and 5 burners. Inbound to the List is a complete 90, low houred Concept 70 envelope and the usual assortment of other equipment including a 13hp fan.

Admittedly some of those sales are as a result of our annual round up of ‘static ads’. Of the 48 advertisers contacted with ads which have not changed over the last 12 months, only 21 have so far responded. It is our intention to delete the ads of non-respondents at the end of July when editing the August edition.

One error notified to us have been our bit of dyslexia over Dennis Fowler’s email address, corrected this issue for his remaining ads. It is ‘scurms’ not ‘scrums’!

Zebedee is able to get smaller pre-ordered items to the Tiverton Meet (11-13 July) and thinking ahead, the van will be at the Bristol Fiesta (7-9 August) with various bits and pieces and able to deliver any larger items.

Another Round of Scams!

You have been warned...

An increasing number of our advertisers are again being targeted by the "Classified Ad Scam". One individual from overseas - 'she' apparently lives in several countries (!) - has contacted a number of our advertisers with offers to purchase equipment unseen. The fraud is revealed when it becomes apparent that they will send a cheque for more than the agreed price with the instruction to refund the excess by Western Union.

Our advice is to treat with suspicion any interest from a buyer who doesn't even want to look at the item for sale...
