Posted Thu Jun 24, 2010, 7:49am Subject: FS - various Illy cup collections - as of 8/10/2010 - updated w/ prices lowered
Longtime member, not around much lately, but I figured I would see if there is any interest in the coffeegeek community before going elsewhere. Great chance to start a collection or fill in the gaps of your existing collection!
I'm in San Diego and moving (thus the sale) - obviously local sales would be nice to avoid the hassle/cost of shipping, but I can pack carefully and ship if need be. I could sell collections separately, but would be open to a combined sale.
***I'll add more if there are more, and I'll add details later. I've added asking prices, if you are interested, email me (we can exchange phone numbers over email if you want to talk - person to person). I will start taking pictures of the collections, for those interested, but all the Collection cups are in unused, new condition. Fair offers please***

Hi Andrew, looks like quite the collection. Where in SD are you? I'd love to come look at the collection and grab a set or two from you. PM me or email email@example.com and we'll set something up!

I'm in San Diego as well; work in Hillcrest and live in Carlsbad. I'm interested in the coppola espresso cups, Norma Jeane cappuccino cups, marina abramovic espresso cups and David Byrne cups. Please let me know what you want for them. Thanks, Mike

I've updated the original post with asking prices. Offers are welcome as long as they are fair. I've also added email contact info. Send me an email if you would like pics (and I can also look up cup numbers for the "Illy collection" cups).
