Haven't these people heard of competitive pricing?
I make maple syrup, and I need some food grade 55 gallon drums for collecting sap.

I go to Craigslist, and everybody is charging the same thing $16 per barrel.

Now I know these people work at places where the get the drums for free, or nearly so.

So what the livid fuck???

You're not going to move many that way. I priced my syrup over 5 years ago under the grocery store prices - and have not raised prices since. I undercut other people's prices , and I sell out every year. They don't sell out.

And how dumb to price the same as everyone else on Craigslist - where people GO to comparison shop.....

Must be the new math, as applied to economics...

Got a bottling company of any kind nearby? We found one that sold used FOOD GRADE barrels for less than $10. We made rain barrels from a couple.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

The only place around that sells barrels to the public only has barrels that had soy sauce or vinegar in them. No good. Too much residual taste.

Fake economics. Wink

I'll ask my brother for info. He's a brewer and knows more about food grade items. There are some food grade items at local agriculture and tractor suppliers.
