It's hard to believe we have come so far with computer technology. Way back you could get the cutting edge computer for $139, with 5K RAM upgradable to a whopping 32 K! Yes, that was Commodores VIC-20, soon to be followed by the record selling Commodore 64 with 64K and 3 separate processor chips-one for solely for sound, one solely for video, and the main processor, which sold for just $300. Cut this out and frame it and hang it in your computer room or with other computer memorabilia. This ad is from the Des Moines Register on March 6 1983. This is the front page of a K-Mart 4 page sheet of ads. Take the time machine back in time and see Eureka vacuums for $77, girls clothes $5-$13, Crisco oil 32oz for $1.37. It is a bit wrinkled as it was apparently used as packing for something, but is quite readable as is.

I will take cash or personal check. If you pay by check, the check must clear my bank and your bank before the merchandise changes hands. No calls please, text only-my job does not allow me to use my phone while working. Text Stewart 8am-8pm, I will call or text you back when I am able to use my phone. Please do not waste your time sending any links or codes. Due the risks of unknown links, I do NOT ever click on any links from unknown senders and code requests are a scam. Text is just as good as email, so let's just text (or voice).
