Default 104 Glass at $1.00 per pound...WOW!!! at Frantz Art Glass

Each day at Frantz Art Glass we take 22 pound bundles of Effetre (mostly) and Vetrofond and cut them on a diamond saw into 13 inch lengths for our customers.

During this process lots of rods get broken, some may be 4 inches and up to 10 inches and they are tossed into a 50 gallon container.

Well, we have almost 3 containers full of scrap glass (sometimes wet) but always dirty with frit on them and we need to remove this glass and make room for more.

Presently I have no desire to wash and pack this glass. When we do we just put the 10-13" lengths into a bundle and sell it for about $4.00 per pound in our retail store in Shelton. But there is no time for us to do this and if you come to our store at Frantz Art Glass we will sell you a full 50 gallon container full of colorful glass, for only a buck a pound.

Yes there will be common colors and handpulled colors, it is a plethora of glass.

If you would like to come and pick through the glass, well, the price would go up, we just want to sell it all or by the barrel.

Satisfaction is a promise!

This is a great deal for somebody looking for lots of glass at a tiny price.

Any takers? Please let me know with a PM on LE or email me at

I'd be interested in the same amount, especially if it could be packed/shipped in a flat-rate USPS box

Ok Mike, here's what you do....
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.


Line up a bunch of large flat rate boxes (the 12" x 12" x 5-1/2" size) and dump all that dirty, dirty glass in them until they're packed full. Then slap a mailing label on them and mail them all out to your wonderful customers who have requested one - like me!

Costs you about $16 per box shipping - so charge a flat $20 shipping fee (to include your time of throwing it all together). If I lived closer, I'd volunteer to help you do it!

Brilliant!

Since I live in Virginia, I can't come and buy the glass from you in person, but would be happy to buy a 30lb box of that unwashed glass if you could just send dump it into a flat rate box and charge the $20 flat rate for the postage and your labor just as Michelle mentioned. I'm sure lots of folks who are not close to your warehouse would love that and it would make us regular customers very very happy. Lydia

Is the location in Shelton the retail store? Is that where the glass would be picked up?

Sounds like the start of a potential bulk buy! Anyone live close enough willing to take that on? They would have to promise to be fair and not pick through it first...
To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.


You could even charge $1.50/lb. to cover your labor & expenses. Don't know how many pounds a large flat rate box holds, but if it's 20lbs, charge $30 + $20 shipping. For $50, we could each get 20lbs of glass, and you'd make $10 for each box! If it can hold 30lbs, it'd be $65 per box and $15 for the kind soul who did this...

Just a though (scheme?)

if someone goes through the trouble of doing that, they should get more than .50 per lb they handle. They have to put up money upfront for this, transport, unpack and repack, print out labels and ship...just saying. Hope you guys can work something out.

I'm good with that too - just throwing the idea out there. If someone decides they want to do it, they'd have to set whatever price makes it worth it to them. I guess I just work cheap -

. I'd love to do it if I were closer - but I love to organize stuff, so I'm afraid I'd want to sort it out so everyone got the same mix. When I was making jewelry I'd buy bead assortments just to sort them out... Ya, I'm a little twisted like that...

It may not even be relevant - someone may have already driven there and bought it all...

Norma - this is their address:
Frantz Art Glass
130 West Corporate Road
Shelton WA 98584 USA

I'm guessing they would be cutting glass fairly close to where they sell it. But I've been wrong before...

I am following this thread to see what comes. I would love to be able to take advantage of such a deal, but sadly also can't stop by the store.

Hello Mr. Mikey??
Where are you??
You got us all hot and bothered......
Remember we are a lot of irrational people who drool on ourselves when we just HEAR the word glass..........
Sorry I started this, but damn--you have a pile of "wanters and buyers"now!!!

Default 3 barrels of FUN

We have three barrels, we should have the 90 pound trash can sold this week. We still have two trash cans, one weighs 240 and the other weighs 280 pounds.

So we have a $240 and $280 barrel. So just hang on and in a week or two I will see if I can make a "Mike's Scrap USPS Assortment". In the meantime we are getting 4 new Messy Colors.

I'm in West Virginia and between work and school, there is no way I could get out to Washington, or I'd be there in a heartbeat! I'd be interested in a bulk buy/flat rate box packed full of dirty glass.

Default buck a pound, nothing ground

Finally after finding enough interest in a few customers buying the scrap I decided to see what was towards the bottom of the trash can. As I washed the glass, the frit fell further down the trash can, and then a tree frog came out and we had to transplant him away from the glass.

I found out that washing the glass will remove the frit, but does nothing for the film that needs to be cleaned off of each rod (which I am not doing), but I am going through the cans sorting out the frit and tiny pieces.

I also realized that packing so much glass into even a larger Effetre box needs to have some organization. And that I can put about 10-12 pounds into a smaller box and fill up a larger Effetre box.

Once I have all my boxes filled and fill the larger trash can orders, anything left will be offered by the 10 pound box, but if that does not happen this time, I have a new system to rescue broken glass and offer it at cheap prices.

Mike
