The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Canon PC 430 Personal Copier for Sale

[There don't seem to be any takers on this one, so I've posted it on eBay as of February 16, 2007. If you've decide you might want it afterall, click here to go to the eBay auction.]

Since I had such good luck with the wallpaper steamer (Jennifer, it's in the mail as of today), I thought I'd post this here to see if there were any takers. Otherwise, it'll be off to eBay. I know that this isn't a home improvement item, but, by buying it, you are getting it out of my way so I can paint my son's room and you are buying paint or primer for the Devil Queen, so there is a tenuous home improvement connection.

There is a bit of a back story for this item. This copier is new, in-the-box and has never been used. It has been stored in its original shipping box since June 2006.

Why have I had a brand-new copier in storage purgatory for 8 months? My wife is working on an extensive research project that requires a lot of onsite copying. She requested that I look into buying her a portable, personal copier. I spent a lot of time looking online, and I settled on this model. I ordered it and a toner cartridge from Amazon. A couple weeks later, the box arrived. My wife opened it, looked at the copier, and told me that it wasn't the one she wanted. According to her, this one is too big to be truly portable (as a big, dumb man I disagree, but I digress). Anyhow, she asked me to return it which I tried to do.

According to Amazon (see the fine print), this item is not returnable. Splendid. I've been meaning to get rid of this damn thing for a while. I'd forgotten about it until I found it cleaning out Gideon's room last night.

Here are a few pictures of the copier.

Here is a link to the copier at Amazon. It makes 4 black & white copies per minute and weighs around 18 lbs. Shipping weight is around 30 lbs (includes the toner cartridge). I'd be willing to take $199 for it plus shipping or your best offer. I just want this thing to go away.
Let me know how you'd like it sent and I'll give you a price on it. I randomly picked two zip codes to get an idea on how much it would cost via the US Postal Service.

Eureka, CA

Parcel $25.06
Priority $43.40
Express $71.60

Buffalo, NY

Parcel $18.83
Priority $32.00
Express $71.60

And, I'd recommend insuring it too.

As I said, it's never been out of the box or used. Since it is brand new, I assume it is 100% functional. However, there is always that 1 in a million chance. If you have any questions, please let me know.
