Thank you, John...  I'm so impatient and itchy about the whole thing, that I will call them tomorrow morning.  The not-knowing part is killing me.

I would feel the same way if I was selling it....

I think I was the winning bidder on the item I was interested in but until I actually receive an invoice for it I won't know for sure. Assuming that I was successful I will need to drive to the auction house this week to collect it. It's a two hour drive from here and I think I will visit Broadfield House glass museum while I am in the general area. :)

Oh, I do hope you have the winning bid on the item you were interested in...  Fieldings sent me their catalogue and there were so many beautiful things up for auction -- not only the glass.

A few weeks ago, I went to Stourbridge to deliver my vase in person...  I planned on visiting Broadfield House, and even had a fancy google-thing map all printed out.  Unfortunately, I'm hopeless when it comes to reading maps and have absolutely no sense of direction.  The only reason why I ever made it to Fieldings from the bus station was because the bus-driver took pity on me and walked me there himself.   :thud:

I gave up on the Broadfield House glass museum idea...   :cry:

Awww Anik, that sounds just like me! I have no sense of direction either.  :kissy:

But if you'd let one of us know you'd be in the UK I'm sure we could've arranged to get you there safely. :rah: 

Next time, OK....?  :thup:

Anik! Noooo.... :cry: I was so sure it'd do well for you. What a disappointment for you. :hug:

Will it go into another sale?

Oh, it's alright, Anne.   :)

I still might have a buyer for it -- I'm just waiting for confirmation from Fieldings  ;D.

... and if not, then not all is lost.  A dear friend called Fieldings for me and found out that my vase may stay with them (at no extra cost to me) until the next specialist-glass auction.  Things will be alright.  :)
