974 retro tiles, too nice to discard

We have just torn out a bathroom with lovely sea-foam and white speckled tile from head to toe. It's a shame the previous owners didn't correct the termite and mold problems, because the tile colors in the bathrooms really suit me. I'm not able to re-use these, and I'm wondering if any of you can point me to a place that might want them. There are 974 4" tiles, plus a soap holder.
When I remodeled the other bath in this house, I was able to remove and reinstall the lavender tiles. I removed the matching vanities and toilet, and I'm wondering where I could sell those? Or give them to a good home? I'm in Wichita KS.

You might put them on ebay. Or look for a midcentury modern website in your state. We have a site in phoenix modernphoenix.net where people post things like this for sale. That is a lot of tiles. I bet there is someone out there who would like them for their mid century remodel.

They wouldn't happen to look like this would they? (The speckledy one)

Here's what mine look like.
I think the picture came out a little "greener" than the tiles, though.

Habitat Restores will take those tiles and I believe they will pick them up too. Hopefully you have one close by. Here in Colorado, we have a lot of recycle places that will resell them. Also try Craigslist - either for free or for sale.

Put them on the classified list at Retrorenovation.com! Numerous folks haunt that site for exactly such tile finds, so it's a large market/audience. Good luck.
