    Pretty wild. I got tired just thinking about moving the snowflakes at 30 pounds each.

    I am not convinced that there's deal here. But others please chime in .. At $475 opening bid, they are already about twice what I think they are worth. Because on top of that you would need a large truck, extra muscle, and a ton of work to refinish them .. to make decent wireframes of them. Pretty soon you have a lot invested. If the gave them away, the labor to make them nice would be extensive. Those are usually incandescent when they are 20 years old.
    Thanks,

    Yeah, I figured at this price, it would probably be cheaper to make them.

    For 125 Snowflakes at (currently) $3.80 each is a steal! However, I don't need 125. I could use maybe 10 at most lol

    The cost of getting them here would probably double that price. Unless someone would volunteer. I would buy 3 or 4. Getting 125 sold might be tricky.

    I agree it's a great deal for the quick buyers. But tough for the person who has to go get them. If any volunteers, I'll buy my 4.

    Default Snowflakes anyone?

    Well they were pretty cool. Old school lights, history, and 6' high. I don't have a display that would work with that though. HappyLand, yours, Annie & Joel's, and a few others these would be AWESOME.

    Barely at my new place. Maybe in the backyard. I wonder if someone on DIYC is parting them out for a profit ? Seems like a tough way to make a profit at 6' tall and weighing 30 pounds !
