Hi,
Thanks for the respond, I'm cool with your final price .. let me know if you will accept payment with Check as this is the only way i can make the payment because i am located in Columbia, S.C .. I don't mind offering you an extra $50 for holding the item for me. I would have loved to come take a look at it though but i will not be able to do so due to the distance and my work Schedule but i'll really appreciate a picture from you if you have that. You may reply with your name and contact address also your phone number where you will like to receive the payment. And concerning the shipment i will handle all the shipping expenses myself. I shall look forward to hearing from you soon.Here are some of the details I will need for final assurance of the payment to you.

Kindly provide your Full Name and Address including your cell telephone number before the payment can be issue. As per-shipping , I will make arrangement for the pick-up after the payment has been received by you...I want to complete this transaction by Friday on the 6th of February 09. Please delete this item advert from the craigslist with immediate effect, so i can be rest assured that the item are held for me. I will be on vacation by Friday on the 6th of February 09.

Concerning the shippment i will handle all the shipping expenses because i have a shipping account with Global Express Shipping Company. I will be glad if you can end this sale with me and take the item off craigslist today.
I shall look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thanks.
