But in between the slew of toilet paper roll requests and the suggestions for electricians in the area, are also items for sale. Most of the time I browse through this list and don't find anything that we really need. But the other day I found a diamond in the rough.
Exhibit A:Since our camera took a dive...literally (click here for the full story). I have been looking around for a replacement. See, Ryan and I had 2 other cameras in our house before we lost our good one. A blue beater that I've had since high school circa 1999, and a red camera that works fine- but has had some shutter issues. (you've seen that in past posts). Our hope is that we can purchase a brand new camera in the future- preferably one like this...but...we don't really need it right now. So, I flexed my muscle in haggling. The lady was selling the camera, memory card and camera bag for $65.00. I offered $20. She took it! I know its not the newest model on the block- but I believe it'll do for now and will be better than old blue and shutter shock red. I'll get my hands on it tomorrow- so I hope to share some pictures with you soon!
