Adventures on eBay
A few weeks ago I was surfing eBay and decided to see if any commercial refrigeration was for sale at a price I could afford and within driving distance. And there were two, count them two, glass front commercial coolers in Shelbyville, Indiana for sale with a bid well under $300. So I put in a bid and was out bid and did this over and over again until I hit $500. That was not immediately topped but eventually it was and I did not know this until I had about 3 minutes left to bid. I tried to put in a bid but my dial up connection was too slow and I lost out. Bummer.
Than yesterday I was looking at my emails and there is one from eBay saying the winning bidder could not pay for the fridges and they could be mine for $500. Realise to buy these fridges from any other source would mean paying around $1200 for each (probably more). If they were new we would be talking $3500 or more each.
And now they are. Just have to borrow a truck in the next few weeks and get over there to get them. I am so excited!
We really need a glass front cooler for the store and we have been chronically in need for extra fridge space in August and September and now we have all we should need.
