This one has to take the all time record for a garden tool. Even if it was a typo in the price, someones a little on the wacko side.

The sellers name is Gilligan. Maybe this was on the original "3 Hour Tour". They used it to plant coconuts and bananas.

Well the good thing is that he has 3 in stock.  That way when the first one gets "snatched up" you still have a shot at buying one.

I asked him if that was a typo and the price was really $60. I'll bet he doesn't reply.

I know times are tough in the US right now, but when did you hit $1 US = 1 Peso?

I don't see what the big deal is. He's offering free local pickup. That has to be worth something!  bigrofl.gif

Those restoration/antique/picker shows are great, don't get me wrong.  I watch them.  But has anyone ever read the "values" on the American Pickers show in particular?  That's where they explain that this utterly junky looking relic (which Mike picked at $40) is actually valued at $300. 

 

What's humorous is that they never say that they sold it for $300.  It was just valued.
