Smile Recent Finds

I thought I would share some of my recent cast iron finds with everyone. My wife and I really try to stick to the $20 dollar or less rule if we can. As some of you already know, it's not always that easy. Nothing that we found is worth very much, but we had a lot of fun hunting it all down. Sorry if it's a little pic. heavy but hey, who doesn't like pictures?

Some great finds! How often do you find under $20 (how long did it take you to get those pieces). I have only had this hobby for about 6 months but it seems like I only have found items under $20 twice in that time.

Hi James, it took about three months to gather this stuff up. I'll go through the local resale shops about twice a week, and average 1-2 auctions a month.
In my short time collecting, I've come to realize that a lot of this game is just blind luck.

Wow, nice Chuck! That raised #5 on the handle skillet looks like one I picked up not long ago. What's the bottom look like?

Chuck,

An interesting group of pans. I'm sure you will have a good time cleaning them.

I second your response to James. It is pretty much blind luck wrt what you find. The price is also impacted by the need/willingness of the seller to sell.
