Wanted: Working Time Machine

I'm drafting a Craigslist ad that will help me go back in time and purchase this vintage Swedish couples tablecloth before it sold from my friend's vintage store, Lucitebox. Here's what I've got so far:

Want to Buy/Rent: Time Machine - $250 (Chicago )

Date: 2011-06-07, 12:00PM CDT

Want to buy or rent time machine for the weekend of  June 11-12. Will consider any machine in reasonable working order. Need to travel back in time to correct very minor shopping error; no major events in history (i.e., having to do with Lincoln, Hitler, general elections, etc.) should be affected.
  • Location: Chicago area
  • it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
Fortunately, Lucitebox has a great selection of other items both cute and fancy, including this daisy print top (just $10!) and vintage apple print sun dress ($68), both on sale. They're not my size, but they might be yours!

Holy coincidence. I was just 30 minutes ago browsing Holly's site and looking longingly at the same tablecloth. I wondered who got it, how/if they are using it, and WHY OH WHY I didn't see it and snatch it up before they did. I also vowed that if I ever see anything like it I will buy it no matter what.

Amy--thank you so much for the clever blog entry featuring my website. I love it!

To make your time travels easier, you need to set the machine to April 23, 2009. I think that's also the day that the band Roxette (of Joyride fame) performed a reunion show. I bet we could find some fans of really bad '80s pop music to fund the time machine rental fees. (Just an idea.)
