Default For Sale - South NH Craigslist "deal"???

I tried to get this guy to sell me a few pieces...no deal...perhaps one of you HBT folks are shopping for a big batch of stuff...I've seen other threads where folks here wish they'd have a shot at good CL deals...good luck..
I have nothing to do with this guy. BUT if you buy it and have too many chillers...perhaps you'd be willing to reward me with a super deal.

bottles are worth $20 a case

car boys $25-$40

Wow one of the most vague ads ever. And a crappy reply to your email too.

What else were you looking for out of that stuff other than a chiller? I have some stuff I am about to sell that I got from a big buy near me.

My parents live about an hour south of Falmouth in ME so I go up that direction once or twice a month usually.

Without further information as to brands/styles of the items I would say these prices sound like full retail and in some cases much more. For whats listed there I would offer somewhere around $400 -500

For instance Bottles go for about $12 and Grinders about $130-$200 depending on what it is.

I agree. Extremely vague. And the response implies that he does not care much about making a sale.

I have a wimpy IC so I want a good one (prefer 50' of 3/8...stainless would be extra cool). Missed one on CL up here a month ago. Also, I want to start aerating my wort. Even just an aquarium pump/hepa filter/stainless difuser. I also want to go to 10 gallon batches eventually. To do so I need a 15 G boil kettle with valve (prefer not a keggle). Maybe MLT l though I have a lot of copper tube to make a manifold from and a "spare" 60 qt rectangular coleman. Above all I am looking for real bargains...as my profile says I am "temporarily retired"...therefore no income! Oh yea, auto siphon and long stainless racking cane are small items I'd like to find as well. Always on the lookout for more 1.5 liter grolsch bottles. I was going to pm this to zeekage...but you never know who else may be reading. I do have easy access to Allagash Brewery and could pick up some of their limited releases (no retail distribution) to barter...if that intrigues anyone. Thanks

I received the exact same response from him yesterday and barely resisted the urge to reply with a sarcastic "good luck with that".

CO2 $100-$150
Keg Taps $40
