THAT MY DEAR FRIEND IS THE TRUTH Yes, jewelry is a blind item...but electronics, etc. you must do your homework ahead of time and know model numbers, but that doesn't seem to help because the islands often sell electronics on a sort of "grey market" We fortunately live in an area where we can buy all sorts of electronics and jewelry at a discount.. But when I hear a cruiser say "who has the best black diamonds"... I want to toss them over.. Sadly, many of these people are from Europe and the prices are so much better here and there
