Wish I could find things like that a jumble sale. Very very nice buys. Congratulations.
No retreat, No surrender.

That's the one I got pop-up bombed at Anne!  Probably harmless (you'd know, not me  :() but one of them was some kind of drive cleaner thing that I just couldn't shake off.  She didn't use to have them on there, did she?

Hi Max,  OooooerrrrI didn't see those as I run under Linux with javascripts off by default, but you are right, there is something nasty there. Allowing the scripts to run I find it's a link to Winfixer which is a bad news type of program (but harmless to my Linux box), so I'll remove the active link from my and your replies above and email Tiina to let her know there's a problem with her hosting. She's probably totally unaware of it.  :-\

The pop-ups have been there for a couple of months or more - I stopped refering to the site when I first encountered them.  >:(

Hi Pat,
You really have to get there virtually as the doors open as the bargains always disappear early. In saying that you still have a chance with some pieces of glass. Everyone seems to be selling on Ebay these days so the named ceramic items are snapped up in a flash.  Then it's exactly as Pip discribed.
Did anyone see the Sun Sea and Bargains BBC TV programme yesterday all the way from Turin in Italy when a Whitefriars Cinnemon drunken bricklayer vase was snapped up in a flea market for just 25 euros and then sold back in the UK for £250. Brilliant!  8)
Back to the matter in hand, isn't the aforementioned Tiina's website the same as listed under Scandinavian on the Glassoholic website? I assume it is so we had better give that a wide berth too.
Cheers,
Bryn(not Brian)

Bryn - the bricklayer buyer was Pinky!  See the thread on www.whitefriars.com forum, I thought she did brilliantly!   :D

Hi Bryn, yes Tiina was listed on Glasslinks but it's now been removed until I am certain the site is clean again. Glasslinks itself *is* clean - it's on my server and I know it intimately!   ;D

Hey yes, Pinky really knows her Whitefriars and the export stamp would automatically make it more desirable. She was generous but she did get an item I would love to own but you know me , I would have to lean more towards the 25 euros price than the £250. I'm a poor retired man you know. >:D

Ooh, is this your middle one:

There's an attribution to A. Okkolin, Riihimäen Lasi, Circa 1970, and it's apparently known as a Chimney Vase.

I'm surprised he didn't think it was Murano...
