Topic: Miss Silvia (8 msgs / 145 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
I should know better than to look at the sale items on the SM site.
I just nabbed the slightly used Miss Silvia (unless it really was 
already gone), but the web page not yet updated to reflect that. I'm 
waiting for real confirmation before getting a better grinder.
I'd actually been watching for one, as used things don't have the 12% 
duty or our 6% GST (national sales tax) tacked on.
I gotta tell you guys, I have serious postal envy for those of you who 
are in the US. I just got 15 pounds of beans and 5 SM bags in the mail. 
The shipping charge was $27.10--and SM has the most reasonable shipping 
on the 'net--they don't add in $20 for a box and some crumpled up paper 
like so many on line vendors.
If I could hold for Harvey, I'd be buying 12 pounds of greens waaaay too 
often, so mebbe the shipping is a blessing in disguise.

Well, if you didn't succeed...
You could just ask Tom to demo one for a few days and then sell it to
you. ;)

SM already has the best prices on the 'net, and there is no way I would 
ask them to sell me something without their getting their regular 
"taste". I know, you're joking, but still...

Silvia Espresso Smith- has a nice ring to it.
But, you're pulling our collective leg, aren't you Vicki?
I rung up the Sweet Marias web site just now, and Silvia was still there. I
had seen it Friday, 4th Aug, for the first time and thought , "This won't
last the weekend!" Guess not, huh?
I hope there's an SES!

Got Grinder?

5) From: Vicki Smith
Ohhh, I get you now, you weren't suggesting that they price it used, 
only that it *be* used. hehehe.

Well, I *will* have a grinder. Right now I have my Solis Maestro 
Classic, but as soon as I know for sure that it really is the one and 
only (yeah, right) Smith Miss Silvia, I will address the grinder upgrade 
issue. Now, if there were only a matching slightly used Rocky on the page...

Or, just have it sent to me Vicki! I'd be glad to use it for a while before
passing it on. I mean, what are freinds for?
I wouldn't even chage you for the beans I'd use ... probably ;)

Talk about rubbing salt in the wounds, Michael. Maria said she will 
watch out for one for me, so it's just a matter of time.
