If you would like some pics I'd be happy to send them to you or post them on here. As for price if you buy them by the "keg" (about 25 lbs for 1/4 keg) it is a LOT cheeper!! also you can find ferriers(horse shoers) that will give you old ones.
    please post them , I find a local farreier to get old ones from

    That's one thing good in living in a populated area! Housing and other things stink, 'cause prices are sky high, but other venues, like different places to sell stuff, are pretty easy to come by...But there is SO much competition, it's a buyer's choice! That's why work has to be good quality! Oh, I take that back, the rich people are still buying c*ap from Ross's and Wallmart

    couple grand: that's normal...We have different expos here at the convention center and other places...Runs between $500 to a $1,500 for a weekend per booth, depending on location. You have a few thousand people walking past your stuff, vs 50 people at the farmer's market

    yeah we was just joking around haha
