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.

Not a bad seller, Frank.  :-*
It's your audience that's the problem. They aren't appreciating the significance of the pieces and collecting such items yet. I do appreciate their significance, but I'm afraid they're not my sort of collecting thing.  :-[
Cheers, Sue (M)

How many views will my thread get though  :D although the more significant items that I did sell last week did OK. But I have updated the research on the Strathearn weights... which I also have to copy over to SG site too.

Perhaps Sue, you just collect the wrong things  :-*

53 views of this thread in less than a day... compares well to less than 10 views of some lots on eBay in a week.

Seems to me that there might even be a higher chance of selling by advertising here! Or perhaps by using scandal hinting titles for auctions ;-)
