There are some low characters who respond to classified ads with an offer to purchase advertised items with a check in excess of the listed price. The idea is to trick an advertiser into sending them their change before the advertiser realizes the "cashier's check" or "certified check" is a fake. These creatures use computers to generate many e-mail messages a day. Our readers and advertisers are too smart for this ploy, but we suggest you invite them to send you the check immediately via Federal Express at the highest rate.

3 Wilson Oversize Rackets - hardy used with covers, excellent condition. $45 each or $135 for the three. Heredia.  Contact

Executive/receptionist double pedestal desk.  This is a very nice hardwood double pedestal desk made from possibly Guanacaste wood, my carpenter  thinks.  It is 63 inches long and 23 inches wide.  The
writing surface is planed from one board.  Nothing is warped.  The desk is fully wrapped on three sides (no exposed view of a person’s legs.  The drawers are wood (no cardboard laminates).  It is honey oak in color and has seven drawers,  It weighs a ton, as you can expect being constructed from hardwood and 
has some nice details on the pedestals. This is not your Office Depot quality desk.  I would love to list it at $1,000 because that is what a craftsman would charge if they could craft it, but I would take the best offer ABOUT $500.

Steel portón is very strong and controlled electrically. We also have bookcase, desks constructed of cedro amargo with a covering of polyurethane and marble. This is superior quality and unique.
