These comments would have equal relevance, and perhaps even more so, if you removed the word "paperweights". Many of the issues identified apply just as much to general glass as paperweights. Surely the reason for discussing them in the cafe forum is that there is likely to be more comment, not less?
One thing is clear, whatever decision is made, it is entirely inappropriate to carry on this discussion under the heading Caithness in Receivership.
aa, I agree that a new thread should be started for this topic.
The reason for the inclusion of the word 'Paperweights' is that we all either make, collect, trade, or sell them, hence the specificity of 'Paperweights'.
This makes the topic relevant here.
That being said, right you are that the 'ebay effect' applies to all collectable glass or collectable anything, for that matter.
Where I am coming from is how we, 'Paperweight' makers, dealers, collecters, et al, think about it and feel about it, etc...
