Hunting Down A Good Deal...
Posted 23 November 2008 - 06:43 PM
I recently came across an ad on ebay for a D flute. There were a couple days left on the auction. The starting bid was $30. I figured this flute would be like the others and end up hitting $70-80 in no time. I bid on it anyway. I didn't want to pay over $40.
The hours clicked by. 20 hours left and my bid was still the only bid. When I woke up this afternoon it was about 15 minutes after the closing of the auction and I just knew that someone had probably outbid me. I went to the site and saw that not only was I the only bidder, but I got the flute for $30...the starting bid set by the seller. Oh, and it's my favorite Hall pattern...ivy.

Fabulous!!! Now don't you just know that you always get what you want? I know I do.;-)
Well...I tell Frither that I just watch and wait. She says my knack is that I make things happen. One time I bought a baby grand piano for about $200. Another time I bought Frither one of those electronic keyboards. It has full size keys. It has a thing where the keys will light up as you press them. It has a bajillion different instruments and rhythms. It does just about everything except make coffee. I paid $50 for that in a furniture shop. It was almost like new.
Last week I checked on getting some RAM for my computer. Staples wanted $50/1 GIG stick. I found some for about $11/1 GIG stick...plus free shipping.
Ok...so maybe I do have a way of making things happen.
