Could Have,would Have,should Have
 
Could have had this whole pick-up load of CI....if I would have been a few hours earlier......I guess I should have checked Craig's List earlier.
Just so happens I know the guy that got this stash. He has a booth at the local swap meet I go to. He said he was going to "cherry pick" the pieces and probably put the remaining pieces up for sale. Just looking there were well over 200 pieces along with an electrolysis set up complete with battery charger.

That sucks that you missed out, but maybe youll find some of it at the flea market.

The lady that had it up for sale was asking $1000 for all of it but he said there was another person trying to buy it so I'm not sure what he paid. Apparently she just wanted to sell it all because her husband passed away and it was his collection. There were several boxes that had the WW marked glass lids made by Pyrex and two others that were CI skillet and DO lids. Think it was worth more than $1000 from what I could see.

Maybe you can help "cherry pick" the pieces! Good luck.

Keep 100 pieces, sell remainder at $10 each. 100 pieces for FREE!

At $5 a piece, it was worth it. You could have kept what you wanted and sold the rest for $5-10 each easily, granted that their weren't many that had cracks or rocked badly.
