well shops only have a certain amount of money (caps) to trade, it should be displayed how many they have

so she doesnt have enough money to cover the sell

Just wait a few days they will have more caps or you could just go to several shop owners

another thing you can do is barter, just keep selecting stuff they have(ammo, mini nukes ect) until you are even or the seller has caps available

Yep. Do this, as well as have them repair your items. Caps you give them to repair your items go toward the money they have to buy your stuff.

You can see how many caps the vendor has at the top right of the menu that lists all her items.

If you pay attention to this from the very beginning, it's usually not a problem for the vendor to run out of money, as the time you spend questing is usually quite long enough for them to respawn some caps. For me, they run out of ammo for me to buy before they run out of caps to give me.


And there's no point in wasting your time trying to become Fallout 3 rich. At a certain point, you just have far more caps than you could ever spend in the game, so, as I said, just get the vendor to repair your items and continuously buy out all their ammo and stimpaks.
