Yay! We recently acquired 70+ gorgeous pieces of Griswold cast iron cookware. Anna, Linda, and I are working pretty much ’round the clock to get the pieces cleaned, seasoned, photographed, and listed so that the inventory is available well in advance of the 2016 holiday gift-giving season. I know you don’t even want to think about the holiday season yet, but as a retailer, we start planning months in advance.
Although we never know until the pieces are cleaned and seasoned, I believe that many if not most of the pieces will be near-mint or better. That belief has been borne out by the ~10 pans from the lot that we have cleaned and seasoned so far.
We will be putting the pieces up as they are completed. A few from this lot have already been posted and more will be posted this weekend (in fact, in the past week we have posted 31 new listings..but who’s counting?) We hope to have many if not most of these beautiful pieces on the site before November 1.
Watch the site for the new inventory in the coming weeks. In addition to other sizes and types, we have many Griswold large block and slant logo number 8 and 9 skillets, a few number 12s, and loads of (my favorite!) Iron Mountain (by Griswold) pans, including some wonderful chicken pans. As you know, every piece is one of a kind. Our minty and near-mint Griswold pans typically sell almost as soon as they are listed. If you see one you like, you’re well-advised to snap it up!
Happy shopping, Griswold hunters!
