We called up to make sure it was still there and got them to put it on hold for us.
So - here's the bounty...
1 x hand driven two frame honey extractor (needs a good clean and a new drive belt)
2 x pairs of leather gloves (need new elastic in the sleeves)
1 x heavy duty hive tool
1 x normal hive tool
3 x veils to fit over hats
1 x capping bag to fit the extractor
1 x bee brush
All that for only $50!
To buy all this new, it would be over $800.
What a bargain, we're very happy with ourselves indeed.
And, we visited the local DPI beekeeping section and got hold of this book.
Next steps, a nucleus hive, a full beekeepers suit and a smoker.
And some bees of course!
