My grandfather and my great grandfather were both horse traders in the foothills of Southern Oklahoma--Choctaw country. Before the white man came, the Choctaw were allowed access to far away places of Turtle Island (indian name for North America).  They were traders and many tribes found it beneficial to speak a little Choctaw.  It was the language of trade as English is today in most of the world.

My grandmother told me my grandfather Frisco Cox loved to trade.  She said he would leave the house before the sun came up looking for a trade.  She said he might leave with a white goat, trade eight or nine times during a long day and return with a black goat worth about the same as the white one he had traded away.

In those days, folks weren't looking to make a profit.  They were looking to exchange something of value for something of equal value.  My grandfather would be happy just to have made fair trade with several of his neighbors.

Make me an offer. Find something you'd like then check the list below the pictures for things that I'm looking for. Don't feel limited by the pictures or the want list. I will respect any offer, no matter how low. Penny capitalist is serious about negotiation. There is no such thing as a bad offer, and there is always a counter offer.
