In other news... we bought this (hyperlink) at an estate sale over the weekend - minus the fringe on the pockets. It's the nine foot, one inch slate model. We got it for considerably less than the asking price. As shown here, the retail is 4k. The seller wanted 1,200. We put in a much lower bid in the bid box and walked away thinking that the bid was a lark, that surely someone else would either buy it or outbid us. Then they called and we had to come up with the money - so birthdays and Christmas are taken care of. We both wanted it, love to play pool, and have space for it in our game room. The timing could have been better, but it's still a score.
