Money seems to be more scarce up in these parts. I have met some amazing people up here! So far they all seem to be more interested in bartering than cash. I find this seems to be a better option than money as you get more for your barter than money would buy.
We traded this Maytag wringer wash machine below so no cash was exchanged.
The goat breeder, a man who looks a lot like St. Nick, came and PICKED UP the goats, brought them to his home, fed them a few days, had them bred and delivered them back home safe all for some bales of hay. He said hay was worth more to him. I was glad not to part with $50-!
I think its neat people still want to deal the old-fashioned way!
