None of the local shops carry them.There must be a reason for that.
ebay is a cost-effective way to inform people of your product if you don't have mega-$$ for advertising, as is the case for many smaller companies. These companies also won't have distribution clout, unlike the big names. That's why Alado is on ebay. They probably don't even expect to sell many units there -it's just a way to get the name out.

It's interesting to see more people posting about them now rather than two years ago when I bought my Alado. So the marketing technique is working, it seems.

(And yes, I'm VERY happy with it.)
