The past twelve months have been the most successful ever since we are on eBay. Last December we even received the POWERSELLER OF THE YEAR 2006 award. However, we feel that now is the right time for us to take a break from our daily eBay business, and start working on other challenging projects such as building up our online sale results archive. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers and friends for 9 years of loyalty and confidence. Over the next couple of weeks we will be selling our entire store inventory of more than 800 fine antiques and collectibles with NO RESERVE! Please all 114 STORE ITEMS that are up for auction right now. This is an exquisite 14 Karat yellow gold foldable lorgnette dating back to Austria in the 19th century.
