My sister and I like to go to the flea market on Saturdays and Sundays. They always have great deals, and we like to see what old antiques are new from week to week. Last Saturday, my sister and I went to the flea market with a purchase in mind. My sister needed a new air conditioner for her garage. The entire house was ducted to the central HVAC system, but that did not include the garage. My sister had a room air conditioner in the garage, and it worked very well for removing heat and humidity from the room. Unfortunately, the air conditioner had stopped making cold air. The air conditioner was about 12 years old, so it was past its lifespan. My sister bought the air conditioner used, last year at the flea market. My sister was looking for another used air conditioner, so she would not need to buy something brand new. We walked up and down the aisles all day long, but we didn’t see anything worth buying. A few stands had some old air conditioners, but they were either priced too high or in terrible disrepair. We went to the flea market on Sunday to look for an air conditioner also. When we didn’t find anything useful, my sister decided to go to the hardware store and buy a new air conditioner. I know she didn’t want to spend the money, but a new air conditioner will easily last for a long time. My sister only got a year of use out of the old $50 air conditioner. She should easily get five years of use, out of the new one.
