I got this mixer for my wedding and I am IN LOVE with it!!!
I doubt my dad got this good of a deal but YOU can.
Head over to Amazon HERE and pick this KitchenAid K45SS Classic 250-Watt 4-1/2-Quart Stand Mixer
They retail for about $275.
It will ship for FREE with Super Saver shipping and as always with Amazon - no sales tax!!!
I really love mine, it is one of the few items I actually have out on my counter.
I have used it so much.
