  9. glass marbles with animal figurines

    I love animals in marbles. Yes I admit to my obsession Please don't call the ASPCA, they will label me a hoarder. I promise none of my animals have been mistreated but they are kept in captivity.
  10. On Barnes and Noble - Its really a book

    Nice comparison Al. I look forward to hearing what you think about the content.
  11. I was the same way. I would try to get things as cheap as I could then try to snipe the snipers. I have given up on doing that. I concentrate on just a few things and when I do bid, it is the amount I am willing to pay at the most. Let the snipers have their shot. it has probably cost me some money because I have been sniped up to a dollar on some items which I believe is the seller jacking the price to get more money.
  12. It is exciting to see a book be born! https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-kings-of-the-rings-scott-rice-mcbride/1127747561?ean=9781641149631
