It shouldn't bother you, there is nothing terribly wrong with his sale. Some things are a little overpriced... For instance the power cables have over a 160% mark up on the price from directcanada, which is only around $1.85 (not sure exactly on the coversion rate of USD-CDN)... but still, it should be lower.

2) Two power cables
-Connects an outlet to a computer, monitor, printer, etc...
-3-pin Shroud Female(IEC-320-C13) to 3-prong Grounded Plug Male(NEMA 5-15-P)
-Both like new, unused
Asking price: $5 USD each

I'm assuming it's 6 Ft.. and if so, at DC it is $3.22 CN

However for something like the Hard drive, because it is such a rare item, he can esentially charge whatever he wants since you can't buy it elsewhere and if you did collect old hard drives, or you did need it for some reason then $50 wouldn't be a lot to pay for it. Same with the Floppy Drive... and really the other items are a good price if you bought more then one thing from him and he let you combine shipping.

However, prices aside, I don't think it is stated in the rules that you have to sell in Canadian currency... but it is misleading and doesn't make sense to sell in USD when we live in Canada. I think it should be added to the rules that you must sell in your local currency, or Canadian currency. So if someone lived in Japan they would be allowed to sell in YEN, however for those of us selling from Canada would have to sell in CDN Dollars.
