Thumbs up Flea Finds Today

https://imgur.com/a/T2OcP2A

I thought I had a good morning today. I stopped at a local flea market at dawn on my way to work. I was rewarded with a lot of cast iron to choose from. I actually passed on several other pieces as I was only dealing with what limited funds I had on hand and about an hour to play with. Here is what I found:

1. Griswold #7 "Erie" Slant Logo w/ heat ring
2. Griswold #8 Large block logo E.P.U
3. Vollrath Ware logo #7
4. Sidney hollow Ware #7
5. Favorite Piqua Ware "smiley" logo #8 and #5
6. P&B Enterprise toy spider

I was a happy camper!

I'm trying to post pics for the first time.... Here goes!

Those are some great finds! Do they sit flat? Care to share what you paid for them?

Yes,
I bartered with the gentleman who was selling but I am a regular customer of his so he did cut me a bit of a break. He knew the Griswolds had value but was not so sure about the others. He was asking $35/ea for the Griswold pans and 25 for the Sidney and 20 for the others. I offered $130 for all 6 and a toy spider from P&B. He accepted. Funny how I always feel like I could have bartered a better deal but I wanted them and I had to get to work so paid the man!

Everything was flat and rang like a bell but I obviously will not know until I get them cleaned up. I have a load in the lye tank now but this load will go in next. I will post pics when all is reseasoned.

You did great! If you've done business with the guy before it doesn't hurt to give a little more. It will most likely come back to you.
