Doing my best to grow the hobby.....

Saw a guy posted on facebook looking for Olympia items.
Said he was looking for signs, cans, etc. He was starting from zero on a collection.
Thought I had a good chance to grow the hobby AND clear out some garage I offered to send him about 40 different Olympia cans (flat, zip, tabs, aluminum, different sizes), and a stubbie bottle if he just paid the postage. He readily agreed. After messaging back and forth, I ended up selling him several test cans (after explaining what they were), and a large inflatable Olympia can. I also threw in for free an uber-common Olympia tray that I have a stack of. FURTHER hooked him up with the info for the Cascade Oktoberfest Swap Meet next week in Portland, the Rusty Bunch website (explained it's usefulness), and the BCCA. He is coming to the show next weekend now looking for neons and more Olympia bling.
Mission accomplished.
Doing my best to grow the hobby and create a can facebook poster at a time!
