    I tied up some 6 pieces of 18” bundles and have them for sale at a nearby thrift store. Don’t have any pics of the bundles. I ordered some twine from Amazon and failed to read the details. Turns out I got 350’ of tiny craft twine, so my inaugural batch of bundles is wrapped 100x with tiny twine. Looks sloppy, but waiting to see if I get any bites before picking up life size twine.

    Good luck.:yes:

    Add "Organic Firewood" to your firewood sales sign to rope in a few more potential buyers. Heck, if you add "Gluten Free" to your sign you may have a hard time staying ahead. :whistle:

    If advertised as free range you should be able to double your price.

    Sure, I was thinking “Chuds Private Stock” no live trees were injured while making this premium free range firewood. Ethically harvested from the most exclusive forest east of the Mississippi. This naturally seasoned firewood burns 7% hotter than imported grocery store wood.

    Works great at roping in the flatlanders from the south and the hippies from the west!

    It’s 80deg today and I just saw a La Niña headline, so it may be a slow year for firewood sales in NC.
    I did sell a load to some thespian transplants from NJ. Maybe that will lead to a bunch of sales to the thespian market.
