Someone got a deal.


A few years ago, I bought a 24' fiberglass extension ladder from HD. Louisville ladder, class 1A. I paid $179 for it.

Last year I put an ad in the paper to sell it. Listed it for $125. I figured that was a fair price. Never got a single call. I went into HD fore something and decided to check the ladders for the helluvit. They had them selling for $129 new. I couldn't believe it. Oh well.The ad expired and I forgot all about it.

Then, this weekend i put it on craigs list for a hundered bucks. Got a call from a guy, and byt the time I called him back it was around 8pm. and he wanted to come right away and see it. I told him "tomorrow would be better". He wanted to come in the morning. I told him I would be working, but home by noon. Not good enough....he absolutely insisted on coming early. OK, I figured. he shows up, gives me the hundred and never even tried to haggle. I was happy with that. REAL happy. Till I went to HD today, and seen the same ladder selling for TWO HUNDRED ANDEIGHTY NINEDOLLARS!!!

I bet I could have got two hundred for it.

What caused HD to increase the price so much? You should really be asking yourself why didn't I buy them all for the $129.

My broker advises against speculation on ladders.
