I have a friend who gave me over 100 of these thermo bricks. Are they worth any value? She said they are older then she is, and she is 74. They came from a old building in Mt. Pleasant TX. When i googled, I couldnt find one brick with the word thermo ingraved in it. Please let me know anyone!!
Doing a Google image search for "antique Thermo brick" brought up a couple of results from eBay where the bricks were going for ~$5 a pop (e.g) but there were very few listings and eBay being eBay I can't be sure if those are legit bids on the bricks or robots trying to build their feedback score. I think with 100 bricks you'd significantly move the supply/demand curve on eBay even if they were legit bids.

I found out that they were made at a thermo brick factory in Sulfer Springs TX which opened in 1901. Im not sure how old these are but I got a few. I sold 10 the other day for 30, he was a brick collector.
Hi Darryl: $3.00 each ! That's great, you beat my estimates! If you sold 10 then the other 90 just need a new home as well!
Maybe an add on Craigs list? Farmers market / craft fair ?
Or use them yourself! I know your in Texas, so you probably don't need a rocket mass heater... But maybe a nice outdoor cob oven ? For those hot summer days?
