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"

Thank you Anne for posting this info here too.

I hope one keeps us informed on this story to see just how far her Angels are, and the story behind them (like the article) is asking people to write about.  Hope there is more info down the road.
