Asking for old gear
Someone suggested ringing the advertisers in the
Trading Post , telling our story and asking for their help - good idea. We may
be welcomed by those that have had no offers.
I guess they might like an incentive to give us
the stuff so how about turning their asking price into a luverly certificate for
their donation to wherever the gear went - plus a screen acknowledgement
' This gear has been donated to the Smith Family
by the McPherson (read their name) Foundation'
(everyone should have a Foundation named after
them) - plus - and there's more !! - giving them raffle tickets in our raffle to
the value of the price they are asking ( a price they usually never
If you try give me a call and I'll arrange for
'Friends of the Bank' ( which Bank) to pick up the gear and complete the
paperwork - Anybody got phone skills and spare time - a call a night maybe. It
might work !!. If you leave the conversation at a point where they want paper
explaining before they cough up email me and I'll send them a luverly screed
(see if they have an email address to save the snail mail cost)
If they want a number to call to authenticate give them my
name and number at 9444 6357 - its got answering on it if I'm not there - if
they want an address give them the Computerbank/Museum address 59 Hudsons Rd.
