Upon Rita's suggestion I purchased a Canon Sure Shot 130 ISO.
I am totally happy with it.
I got it here on eBay for about 75/80 USD
There is an excellent photo and html discussion board...good place to get good information..

Generally, any digital camera in your price range that has a "macro" lens or "macro" setting will give you good results for close-ups.

Also, try to avoid using a flash. Use as much diffused or natural light as you can.
