the elephant part i think is just the design. You would have to post up a pick if it is available and find out what the height on the beast is, if any/all the accessories come with it.

I've read the add and it looks like he's trying to score that amount of cash because the elephant itself on the vase is rare. It's not. If your going to spend 120 plus shipping I would suggest spending less on one of the vendors here that sell brand new KMs and get a brand new, unused one. Hookah Company, The Hookah, ******* Hookah carry them. I would feel better buying from a reputable retail vendor rather than someone saying he paid $240 in Egypt for an Elephant vase KM. Even the most expensive KM available from our list of vendors tops out at $170 or so and that's built using crystal not glass. This is just an opinion though.

i would email him and get a list of exactly whats being thrown in. brand names, everything.

From the pic it looks like he has a nice hose, and i see some SB tins. If the coals are a good brand, and its local and you don;t have to pay shipping i would consider it, but kwikwi has a point in that you could just get one from somebody like John at CH and know you are getting a good deal.

BTW, can you post the link from CL? So we can see if this guy is the real deal or not :P

NVM found it:

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/clt/915742844.html

to tell the truth, I don't even think its rare. I've seen a good number of people with that hookah. He probably knows the average buyer wouldn't know off of craigslist.

If he really bought it for that money...geez he was soooo ripped off lol O nvm hes also throwing in other stuff so maybe that would explain why.

Ask him the real price without those thins

$240 for a hookah in Egypt? That guys is an EPIC liar. No rig here would ever cost anything beyond $40 .... Let alone $240.

Exactly, just saying that if he says he wants half what he paid for it. That would put it around the 240 mark. So highly suspect.

ok... after reading the post, i would jump on that. The guy may be an epic liar on the original price, but it has 2 tins of starbuzz and coals plus the hookah.

also, the dude only lives like an hour away from me! haha.

NO WAY get one off of a dealer from the site we get discounts so you will strike a much better deal on a new one
