As a reminder, even though MoT's is a free site, we do rely on two methods lights on. One is a referral generator that creates (mostly) unobtrusive links. This depends on the site being whitelisted in any ad-blocking software you use. If you could please whitelist this site, we would be ever thankful. (We promise there are no pop-ups, pop-unders or other annoying distractions.)

The other method is donations from members and visitors. These are completely voluntary and there is no obligation. Any donations go directly towards site operations and are greatly appreciated. Click here to donate today.


Thank you!

Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find

Looks good, but nothing really stands out as special to me. I guess it's a decent price for a Sellita.

To follow up, this Kickstarter campaign was

UNSUCCESSFUL

The project's funding goal was not reached on Thu, October 10 2019 1:54 PM EDT



Message from the project creator:

I would like to thank all our backers who supported our campaign, it means the world to me that you supported and backed our project. Unfortunately the campaign did not reach its target so this project will not go ahead.

We will re-evaluate our campaign, see where we went wrong and learn for the future. We also need to figure out where we go from here and find ways to push forward.

Thank you all once again

Very best regards
