no i mean i actually agree but i think that it was harsh the way it was worded..

Hand-painted ceramic tiles are very expensive, even odd ones - anything from £5+ each.

You can have them made/painted in a specific colour at the local 'craft mill' but they are more expensive !

I would have thought you'd be able to sell them on as you bought them, as a sample pack.

Wait for another Ebay free listing day and then you can start at any start price and you won't be out on listing fees if they don't sell,you will be able to guage the market and see if there's any interest,
