    My pecans are really falling nicely and I am offering shelled pecans for $8.00 a pound plus shipping. I use flat rate usps boxes as much as possible. I don't want any money sent until I message you saying your order is ready to ship. So basically, if you are interested, I'll put you on a list of first come first served basis. Once I get your order ready to ship, I will message you to send the money via PayPal.

    I am very fortunate to have made a nice trade for my pecans I needed for my baking or I would have right in line. Your price is excellent for shelled pecans. A store on the mainland that sells them bulk charges $20 a lb. What a deal, it is hard work to gather, dry and shell pecans. I used to help my Grandma with her walnuts......hard work indeed. I hope you sell a lot for the holiday baking! I so love butter pecan cookies, do have some recipes to post? I bet you bake quite wonderful pecan pies!

    Thanks romysbaskets.....funny thing is, I can't bake a pecan pie to save my life so I leave that up to my mother....they are wonderful. I do however cook a delicious fresh apple cake with pecans and tons of other things with the pecans.

    How much can you fit in each of the flat rate priority boxes?

    Shelled pecans, yum. We're in!! Probably for a couple of pounds. Perhaps 3 depending on what shipping will be.

    Please put me on the list, for 3 lbs for sure ! The drought here really messed up our pecan crop. If you can get 4 lbs in the box I'd sure take them.
    thanks, P.J.

    Hi, I'd like a quote for shipping five pounds to 60518, if you have them available.

    I'm getting the crust ready now for my pecan pie. ;)

    Oh my! Only three dollars more in shipping for twice as much?

    Could I change my order to ten pounds? Then I'll give up walnuts for the winter. ;)

    And how much do you fit in a small flat rate box?? I don't think I could go through 5 pounds of pecans... without guilt anyway. LOL...
