A bidder wrote to ask me if I would accept payment of an âeoeE-cheque via PayPalâe. (Hey, sheâe(tm)s Canadian! They spell funny up t (I should talkâe¦Iâe(tm)m originally from VERY northern Minnesota & we TALK funny!))

Iâe(tm)m not very good at this EBay thing (see photos!) and I was burned once accepting a personal check and shipping his winnings offâe¦never to be seen or heard from againâe¦plus another $25 I was out for the bad check he wrote to me. This is not a business for me. We really are just trying to eliminate some of our treasures as we just donâe(tm)t have room Also, I had the misfortune to have an uninsured heart attack last May; it was mild, but still expensive, so any funds are really going to my cardiologist.

Also, âe(tm)s a link to a similar warning:


Anyhow, yes, I will accept e-cheques, e-checks, and personal checks but until the funds are absolutely verified that they are irrevocably deposited into my meager account, I will have to retain possession. So donâe(tm)t badmouth me for delayed shipping. You pay, I ship.

I want ME to be as satisfied with every aspect of my transactions as 100% of my winners have been. Thanks for understanding, KRK.

As you may have read in our other auctions, we are trying to pare down our possessions. Last year I sold off my beloved collection of beer steins. Now my wife is sacrificing her small collections of Bradford Exchange plates and ornaments. We no longer have the wall or floor space to display all of our prizes.

Unfortunately, two of our sets are now inexplicably incomplete. We had a break-in at our off-site storage garage in Las Vegas in âe(tm)02 but I thought only tools, 2 old guitars, and my collection of 500+ virgin rock âe~n roll LPs from the late 60s and early 70s were missing. We are not even sure if we had these plate collections in storage then. Perhaps something was misplaced during our move in 2005.

Regardless, is a partial set (six of eight issues) of the Lena Liu âeoeBasket Bouquetsâe collection of 1992 and 1993. Since this is not a complete production, the initial bid represents a true bargain price!

The plates no longer in our possession are Issue #2 âeoePansiesâe and Issue #4 âeoeIrisesâe.

As always, each perfect plate is in its original container and includes its Certificate of Authenticity . Please forgive my lack of photographic skills. Some photos have an unusual blue tinge to them & others look pink. I took them outside on a cold (22 o) grey day. These photos hardly represent the detail and brilliance of the artist.

And please look for our auction for the first five issues of the eight set edition of Lena Liuâe(tm)s âeoe Flower Fairies âe collection.
