For starters, thanks for all the responses, I appreciate it a lot that more experienced people are prepared to take time to respond to a beginner. THANKS!
I will try to respond to each response â€¦ if that makes sense:Cathy B:
They appealâ€¦ but a Millifior is just is so much better. But one cant buy one regularly without seriously running out of beer money Lustrousstone:
â€¦.about buying onlineâ€¦and eBay particularly I am posting a separate topicâ€¦hopefully I donâ€™t get ditched for posting to much!
I understand what you say about the real world. I am lucky enough to live about 2 streets away from one of the best â€śflea marketsâ€ť in Europe, held every Saturday. If you love glass and you are ever in this neck of the woods (Vienna, Austria) please let me know I will be glad to take anybody there!!! There is nothing like seeing something 2 tables away and getting closer and closer and then realizing it is/or isnâ€™t what you thought it was. (And even worseâ€¦then buying it and later realizing it is junk!!! Thatâ€™s why I have an unidentified weigh (dated 1908) sitting right next to a piece that I believe may be a mass manufactured weight that looks like a troll
â€¦ and I am insulting trolls!)Leni:
I have done a search and had a look at both JD and PM weights and they are really good value. True they may not be an â€śinvestmentâ€ť but if you want one of those you should be buying stocks and bonds or short selling oil. Who knows maybe one day my daughter may say that I made a shrewd investment with that paperweight with the thistle in the centre!
Sorry for the long post
