There was a lot of bargaining this trip.
Clint haggled for the beach ball paddles explaining that we needed ping pong paddles, and these would be suitable replacements until we can get some real ones.
Carolyn offered $2 for the suitcase which was marked as $5, and the lady compromised to $3.
Clint didn't even try to haggle for the massager. He tested it and was just like, "Sold."
Catherine got some good deals also. A man was selling an office chair for $30, and she talked him down to $15. She said, "All I have in my wallet is $15." The guy paused and said, "Well, to be honest.... I'll take that $15." Since it was raining, he realized this was his best bet to get rid of it. Sold!
