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.

One of Perthshire's big problems was that due to eBay, Perthshire was ultimately competiting against it's own products and creations. Does one buy online a Caithness (or as it was - a Perthshire) at below market prices or does one buy a new Caithness at retail? EBay is going to turn out to be an interesting conundrum in the future of mid-range paperweights. High-end weights will always have their adherents.
