Due to extreme family medical and financial issues, I have decided I must part with my I Dream of Jeannie bottle collection. I have several beautiful painted bottles that will be listed in the coming weeks from artists Brian Fetzer, Daryl James, and Michelle Edewaard. I will also be selling several plain Jim Beam bottles in excellent condition, as well as two of my terrible attempts at painting. I try to accurately describe all of my items. Please ask any questions that you may have.
My listing these bottles should not be looked as a reflection of the artist's work. My reason for selling my collection is strictly financial. As many people in the Jeannie community know, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005 and brain cancer in 2006. She has continued to work as much as she can, but the last few rounds of chemotheraphy have taken a lot out of her and she is only working an average of one day a week. Our household income has been cut down to 1/3 of what it originally was. I would like to thank everyone for their support through all of this. Despite the bitterness between certain members of the Jeannie community, it seems everyone can be sympathetic and supportive when times get tough. Parting with my collection was not an easy decision, but it is something I find necessary to do now. I have faith that one day I'll be able to start collecting again.About the bottle up for auction -- Artist: Brian Fetzer - Brian's Genie Bottles
