Default Anvils in Texas

I ran across a guy wanting to buy my anvil who lives in or near San Antonio. Shipping is outrageous, but apparently there are not that many anvils for sale in Texas. If any of you Texans are interested in selling an anvil to this guy PM me and Ill see if I can't get you to swap e-mails or something.
BTW I did not post this in the F/S section as I am not selling anything, nor am I brokering or making anything from this. If I am in the wrong I apologize.

I don't have one to sell, but I wouldn't know why anvils would be any scarcer in Texas than any other state. If he wants your's bad enough tell him to come pick it up.

Walker, you friend might poke around over at http://www.iforgeiron.com/.
I think they pride themselves on guiding new recruits to smithing into good startup equipment.
They should know where to look & who to contact in his area to find stuff and how avoid the not so good deals.

Cutter, I do frequent Iforgeiron.com but apparently there is a dearth of anvils for sale in Texas and the prices are higher. I will sell him mine but I was hoping to avoid shipping it as it is heavy, and I'd have to build some sort of crate, etc. I just thought if there was anyone closer I'd save him the shipping costs, then just sell mine locally.
