I want to buy a widget in Fayette, AL
in the next few days. I am not there, don't know anyone there, and can't get there. Am I out of luck?

So, weird situation right? Basically, I need a proxy buyer who is A) trustworthy, B) available, C) affordable, D) able to act/reason, at least somewhat, autonomously, and E) trusts that I'm not a Nigerian scammer [I'm not].
Finding that sort of person seems like a long-shot but askme has came through in the past, and never fails to educate/entertain, so I figured why not ask.
There is nothing illegal about said transaction. There will be receipts, bills of sale, and all that. They will be expected to pack and ship it, at my expense of course, as well. The widget is smaller than a breadbox and 100% innocuous.
Anyone have family/friends out there? /longshot
