The guy I get them from gets them for free from bottling plants but it costs about $5 each to ship them here (trailer full). He then sends most of them overseas. He always had a lot full of them but not so much any more. Last time I talked to him he said there were less then 150,000 left in North America and most are in Canada.
* Sure wish they were as plentiful here in the midwest... Obviously, $15 is much better than $45.
* it's the classic love story - supply meets demand. The price, including your deals, will only get more expensive.
* Can't be mad at those guys, they are just putting food on their table. I do the same thing with different products.
