Kendall Gardner agreed to buy from B& C Shavings, a specially built shaving mill to produce wood shavings for poultry processors. B& C faxed an invoice to Gardner reflecting a purchase price of $ 86,200, with a 30 percent down payment and the “balance due before shipment.” Gardner paid the down payment. B& C finished the mill and wrote Gardner a letter telling him to “pay the balance due or you will lose the down payment.” By then, Gardner had lost his customers for the wood shavings, could not pay the balance due, and asked for the return of his down payment. Did these parties have an enforceable contract under the Statute of Frauds? Explain.
