Madison: Nut Coal & Appliance

Madison: Nut Coal & Appliance

PostBy: coaledsweat On: Sat Mar 08, 2014 7:10 pm

I'm doing my good deed for a merit badge here. A widow in Madison has 118 bags (2.36 tons as near as I can figure) of nut coal and a stove to get rid of. The coal is Blaschak in 40# bags. The stove is a Gibraltar CFS and looks OK. Probably could use some new door gaskets and it has two ash pans. Both the coal and stove are close to the cellar door which you can drive your truck right up to. She wants $450 (my abacus is showing around $190 a ton here) for the coal and $100 for the stove. Any locals around that want to help this poor woman out?

PM me for details.

She called me Tuesday and is anxious to sell this stuff. She took a deposit on the house. Any offers?

I have a email out to a friend to see if he is interested.
He burms wood and may want to switch to coal.
I will let you know as soon as he replies
