With a concerted effort could paperweight dealers and collectors make a bid?

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.

I whole heartedly agree!
