Postby Guest » October 13th, 2006, 4:25 pm

Greetings! Out of town travel kept us from issuing last weekend, but here's this weekend's (distributed Friday the 13th) installment of the "reverse auction. Remember, once listed, prices go DOWN by approximately 10% each week a new list is published and as long as an item remains on the list. If you see something of interest, verify availability with an email query and we will respond with the total cost including shipping at standard and priority rates.

As always, we "GUARANTEE YOUR SATISFACTION" with all items we sell, or your money back! If you want to return an item for any reason, we offer a full refund of the purchase price. Payment options and other details are at the end of the listing.
