Elina sells lots of stuff via HuutoNet, the Finnish equivalent of eBay. Usually she sells old and vintage clothing, mainly from the sixties and seventies that she amasses at thrift and charity stores, flea markets and recycling centres. Just recently she had five packages of different pantyhoses from the early eighties - she sold them to a man! Nothing wrong about that, I assure you (Elina has said that in these matters I belong to the most liberal 0,50 % of the male population in Finland), but there was something creepy about the man writing in an e-mail that he will call Elina and come to us and pick up the tights. I said "no way you're gonna be alone then".

Now she's making a package to send to the guy. I can sleep peacefully at night.
