Who needs eBay?

Last November I converted our old diaper bag to a briefcase. It was an excellent bag—actually an Eddie Bauer document bag we bought in 1997 or so—if a bit small for what I needed to carry.

Last week a woman from Akron, Ohio e-mailed me. She had been searching for that precise Eddie Bauer bag. She has one, and a friend of hers wanted one, but Eddie Bauer no longer makes them. So the woman offered to trade me for a Targus notebook bag/briefcase.

Now, thanks to the postal system, she has her bag (and soon, so will her friend), and I have an excellent case for my PowerBook and papers.
