Hi folks it is Tod here from Tods Stuff doing a shameless piece of self promotion, or bringing those of you based in the US good news, depending on your point of view

Listening to the radio today and with all the black news in the air and how the Dollar shifted against the Pound by 8c today etc, it occurred to me that because I am based in the UK my pieces are getting cheaper so I thought that I should send out a small good news item to offset the bad financial Karma we are endlessly being fed these days.

Aparently the currencies have shifted 25% in the last 3 months so what would have cost you $200 in June would now cost you $150..........

Being in australia i've been watching our currency slide against the the US dollar (not sure why our dollar is so weak against the US$ given that we're in a lot better shape??). So from the other side of the fence, as a consumer, its been pretty much all bad news; i had been going to buy a windlass falchion from KoA but what started out as being $154.95US plus $65US for postage is now $353AUD; well outside my comfort zone sadly.
