Here are some carboys and a demijohn for sale in Ohio. The carboys are reasonable, the demijohn seems expensive (Old purchasing maxim: "You don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.")

It may be $100 but that's a cool old demijohn.

I've seen old pyrex ones that are close to $500!

The old stuff you can still use is cool. It just is. I guess that's why my Land Cruiser daily driver is 30 years old.

But I want one of those old Pyrex demijohns. Even though 15.5 gallon kegs are better in every measurable way.
