    Stopped by a local pawnshop on Friday, found a new in the box Delta 10" drill press for $70 (been looking for one for a while). On the camera shelf I see two marked at $75. I take the cleaner of the the two, a like new Kodak DX3500 2.2 MP w/8MB internal memory. Looked in the expansion slot, there's a 128MB card. Not bad for $75;)
     
  2. gives us pics of the camera using your new camera:D

    dude, seriously....



    how the heck do you score such good deals on stuff?!?!
     
  6. Chances are that camera belonged to a kid, was stollen, then sold for drug money, which was bought by the thief, which he bought off his dealer, who got it off a smuggler, who was shipping it for a cartel, who killed the family of that kid that bought the camera for getting in the way... Or it was pawned by someone who needed the money and had no strong emotional ties to their camera. Either way I just nailed on a comercial. :rolleyes:

    OK, lets see ya? Or at least post more pics of your basses. :p
     
  7. I got that beat.

    Brand new set of clip-ons for my bike....absolutely free.

    I won an ebay auction, emailed the guy my shipping addy....so he'd get me a quote for shipping. Then, nothing for 2 weeks, won't return emails...etc.

    Then the clip-ons show up on my door, once again email the dude...asking what the shipping would be. Nothing.

    Mine now...I really tryed. I'll email again on monday.

    Hey Brad, my uncle leaves close to you. Next time you run across an Eden 4x10XST for three dollars and eighty-eight cents, could you give me a call so I can have him pick it up? :D
     
  12. Brad. Last year in the San Diego Trib ads. I found a 150w bass amp/combo with a brand new Carvin 15" speaker for $50. I also find money in the strangest places, but I also have lost it in stranger places...


    Fetch!

    The XST's have been running about $7.50 plus tax, I guess that's out of the price range you're looking in;)

    Too bad.

    I find so much stuff it's not funny. I'm familiar with this model camera, we found a new one where else, in a pawnshop, last year, cheap. I swear, when I looked in the memory slot, pushed the button and the 128MB card popped out, the first thing that came to mind was:

    "Again?"

    :D

    This has gone way past silly.
     
  15. Brad, I'm sorry, could you please repete that again?:D

    Fetch!
     
  16. SMASH... don't I know it... the pawn shops in vancouver are insanely expensive..


    Peace,
