Default Skateboard decks

This is a complete longshot I'm sure, but you never know.

Whats the chance anyone on here seeing this has a friend/family/hookup in the skate shop business? I'm trying to pick up 12-24 decks for a reasonable price. No blanks, but no old school $200 decks either. Looking for some enjoi, birdhouse, hook-ups, flip, girl, element, etc type decks.

I'm finishing the basement and around the bar area I want to line the walls with decks. I was going to use all my old ones but they all have road rash and look like ****. New decks are needed for the look I'm going for.

I found a seller on ebay with good prices and gave them a list of 12 decks I wanted, all decks ranged from $20-$35 a deck. I came out with a total price of $316 for just the decks. I figured deck on top of deck shipping couldn't be more than $25-30 right. Guy told me $400 total. Not sure how he got that number, but its out of the ballpark. So I doubt I'll be doing business with him unless he drops the price.

If any of you guys know someone that gets decks at wholesale prices and can hook me up that would be sweet. My local skate shop that I was tight with went under years ago, so I have no connects here. Any help is appreciated!

Depending on the price he can offer I would be interested in the Darkstar Chet Thomas, the Heath Kirchart, and the Mike Vallely. If you see him ask him what he wants for the 3 shipped to CT. Thanks man!

I'm trying to get around 20ish decks or so to work with. I have alot of space to **** with and I want to do it right, not just 3 or 4 boards. Just sucks cause every shop charges $50 or so for a deck. I'm in the works right now with another seller off ebay to try and work something out. I have one small section where I'll mount my 4 remaining intact boards from over the years. All the rest are years ago gone.

I don't know what level of skating you guys were at, but with stairs and rails I would never trust a blank deck. Every blank I bought when I was younger to save money snapped. Not a one lasted very long out of the maybe 2-3 I've had. I have a long history with Hook-ups and Girl decks and always love them. Where as decks like Alien workshop weigh 20lbs and have no pop. I def came to have favorite companies over the years. Like shoes without a doubt is DC.
