hi there. i am looking for some tumbled crack off type glass. i wire wrap it to use as elements in ornaments and suncatchers and such. i might also buy this as untumbled so my i 'want' a tumbler (or cement mixer) can upscale to an i 'need' a tumbler. thanks. rosanna

I can ship you a box. I usually sell it to a guy who does concrete counter tops for $1 a pound.

I throw it away 50 lbs at a time. I guess I should start thinking about selling it to someone.....

I have about 250 pounds you can have if you pay shipping. I like to go through uship.com on this kind of stuff. Can get good shipping rates as the bids start flying.

Sorry Rosanna.

I read that as I would like untumbled stuff as well so she has a reason to upgrade.

contact Variety Glass in Cambridge, OH. They make it by the ton and will tumble it and if you buy enough, will make whatever color you want. They are supplying several companies with what is sold as "beach glass". They can make a lot of it.
