I need a fix... (or, All In for the Winter Shows)


Post by menke » Fri Jan 10, 2020 6:31 pm

I keep setting the price on cans I want at auction (always a #2 bidder, never a winner) getting snaked on stuff or forgetting to bid, flat out missing killer BIN's, and being priced out of the nicest stuff I want in the dealer auctions. I'm getting nothing. I have bare shelves here, people.

So I'm all in for B/G, Spring Thaw, and any seedy location I can occupy to put my hands on cold, hard, steel cans. I'll be working all my stagnant leads, hitting the fleas, discounting all the non-beer crap I have on eBay, and hustling any way I can to raise funds (scrap wire, anyone?). Will you all bring me some cans to buy?????

Better to drive 950 miles and kick asz than go a thousand miles and get nothing.

While you are at, buy a couple lotto tickets. Then, maybe you can come to Frankenmuth for Winterfest on January 18.

I hope things go well for you at Blue Gray.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

2019 Shows Attended

* Michigan Chapter Winterfest, January 18, Frankenmuth Michigan
* Beer Can's 85th Birthday, January 24, Online show

I will have more totes than ever at Blue-Gray since I did a major thinning out of my non-core collection stuff and I am sorting that collection I bought. . MarkB
