As I arrived home today, I found a rather large box sticking out of the deck box we have on our front porch for packages. Woohoo, Martinsburg has finally set my Basket of Cats free! I dragged in a somewhat heavy, unlabelled box measuring 44"x19"x7", only slightly squished. Within the box were:
Zero plastic compartments of sequestered Woot-gas ($0.00)
One Targus DMC111 Memory Card Case, like everyone else ($12.81 on Amazon.com)
One 3 oz Bottle of Jordache imitation ANAIS ANAIS by CACHAREL perfume ($8.99 on EBay)
One April Fools Black & Decker Pocket Power Backup Battery Pack #CP120B ($10.99 on Buy.com)
One Esteban Master Class Black Cutaway Guitar Package, which includes
.....Cutaway acoustic/electric steel string guitar with case. One damaged string, but there were a set of spares, the replacement works
.....Complete 5-DVD Instuctional set, cases cracked but disks intact
.....Poster size chord chart, polishing cloth, picks, straps, spare strings
.....10 watt Guitar amplifier, no sound from the speaker, but headphone jack works
..........(easily repaired - I took the box apart, and found that one of the wires to the speaker had fallen off. I put it back on, and the amp works perfectly)
.....Signal cable to go from guitar to amp, with damaged connector - can be easily repaired or replaced
.....Masking taped labelled "Damaged" holding the cable to the box the amp was in - not sure if they meant the cable or the amp
Amazon.com lists this exact kit as selling for $139.99 as a "Blem", and $699.99 at full price.
A small piece of crinkly clear plastic, randomly stuffed in the box.
Ginger the cat did not come in this Basket Of Cats. She came in a rather different basket.
I can use the Memory Card Case and the B&D Power Brick. My wife saw the bottle of perfume and instantly said that it was going to the Goodwill Store.
Not sure about the guitar kit. If someone has a good offer for a trade, I might be interested.
All in all, a theoretical value of $172.78, and the anticipation was a lot of fun. Can't wait for the next chance!
