No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

the reason i started this post was because years ago when i first saw this thing i assumed that i could not afford to buy one
and now that im wealthier and the newness of it had worn out i figured i could buy one if i could locate a retailer

so when i found that web article i posted above i got excited, then after more research i found this
