Way ahead of you....i replied to that same ad wondering if she'd sell just the bottles....she wants $30 for them......which works out to about .45 each....bit overpriced IMO but still cheaper than buying them new from a LHBS......i buy mine for .25 each..$3 bucks a dozen..
Another thing to consider is with these being used for homebrew, you don't know the condition the gaskets are in, as they may have been used for many batches and have lots of wear on them....so buying new gaskets would be an option if they're in bad shape....and they are not all that cheap from what i've come to find out...but the more you buy, the cheaper they can get..
There was a guy that had about 180 of these bottles for sale on kijiji....msg'd him a few times with no reply back....
What bottles are you using now? These are alot easier to use for sure...Fischer bottles are nice too as they're brown and bigger(500ml)..
