    Anyone know how I might try to re-market a bunch of brand new Loewen wood windows? Construction project has gone T.U. and I think I'll cry if I have to look at these much longer. There's probably somebody out there who would be interested in snagging them for a more than fair price. Just not sure where to go, besides Barter Board. Ideas?

    These sell in our Bulletin Board newspaper regularly under "Construction Supplies". Advertise them. Even our newspaper has cheap ads for self-sales. Call Habitat for Humanity and offer them a good deal to take all of them.

    Around here (Maine) there's surplus places that sell building materials/millwork, etc. that are "2nds" or discontinued/obsolete. IF there's a place like that around your parts, they may take all of them at once. Though, I bet you wouldn't get cost out of them doing it that way; but they'd be out of your hair at least.
