Ron's Swap Shop vs. Caln Habitat For Humanity - Potential War?

Ron's Swap Shop. Chester County staple. But what about when you want to actually SEE the item as opposed to having Ron DESCRIBE the item? That's when you head to the Habitat for Humanity in Caln. For instance, the used portable toilet above. I'm sure Ron would have said something like,

"It's a portable toilet that is looking for a loving home but just needs a little elbow grease to get it back to it's original glory days".

That's fine, salty language for describing a used portable toilet, but that doesn't tell me how clean it is. When I buy an item like this, I want to at least make sure that the portion that you sit on is clean. And can you really get the feel of a piece like this by hearing it described by the Sultan of Swap on the Information Super Highway? Not really. Can you accurately estimate the resale value? Probably not.

Let's just agree to disagree. When buying used portable toilets in Chester County, it's always good to have a few options.

I love the Caln Habitat for Humanity. When you own a house, your always looking for good used toilet!
