I originally offered this piece to the list at what I thought was a good
price of $850

When it didn't sell I dropped the priceto $750. It still didn't sell, so
last night I dropped the price again to $600.

At first I contributed the lack of interest to the timing, with Christmas
almost here.

Then I received an email asking about the shipping and now I believe a
poorly worded line in my Ads may have confused some people and may be the
reason no one was interested

These lines appeared in their respective Ads and are very poorly written

I'm asking $850 plus shipping which is 40 cents per gram.

I'm asking $750 plus shipping which is 36 cents per gram.

I'm asking $600 plus shipping which is 36 cents per gram.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW If you read my Ad and thought the shipping cost 40/36/36
cents per gram

That was not what my intention was.

The first line was supposed to read "I'm asking $850 with shipping included
which is 40 cents per gram."

But I changed the way I worded it and missed fixing some parts and that is
how the email went to the list.

The in subsequent emails I just change the pertinent info and re-sent it.


In all fairness to the Don, who is the person I'm selling this for, I feel
obligated to do my best for him so I'm going to accept offers on this piece
for the next 2 days.

The minimum offer I'll accept is $600 and if anyone offers me $850 I will
consider it sold.

Thank you and I'm sorry for all the confusion an additional posts my mistake
