Value (a rough estimate of cost of production) = BrisLETS Units or $s.  (For example 2/ 5 gm means $2 per 5 grams.) All produce is for barter to known locals by preference. Please check our wants on CES BLCE1533 of BLCE4104 and/or StreetBank or Ripenear.me (you need to register for them) or send an email and ask me.  Please note that some values may be subject to change as the quantities are estimates and may not have been weighed and sold before. Accuracy is not a preoccupation and Value is only shown here for those traders and circumstances for whom it is a concern.

Delivery postage = extra dollars or pick up from Coopers Plains.
