  1. crows will do that....or is that a wives tale?
  2. Pretty funny story! http://www.kpax.com/news/marble-stealing-squirrel-caught-in-the-act/#!prettyPhoto/0/
  3. thats what marble collecting is all about anyway - so why degrade the book
  4. I found this artist at the Portland farmers market - she makes some really nice marbles! http://www.ejhotglass.com/ Her artistic talents transfer around to the other side of the glass too - which is unusual for this type of marble....most artists just create the flower or the scene facing you and leave the back side blank or worse - EJ creates a decent pattern to see on the opposite side so that when you turn the marble it is just as beautiful.
  5. Ebay / now Paypal should be sued for monopoly purposes. They now own Paypal and force sellers to used Paypal for every transaction. So the owners now not only get paid once from Ebay fees - but paid again for Paypal transaction fees (which are the same) DOUBLE DIPPING!!!! They are too big for their own good and have gone over the line on transaction fees - pissing off many sellers including myself. The only problem is that they still get you the biggest viewing audience around. Can't sell the same items in a local paper or on Amazon - the lure of getting a deal on an auction just keeps buyers sniffing around....been like that for centuries now.

  7. can't be a 2 pontil handmade cane cut slag - those don't exist.
  8. After multiple attempts to sell this baby - I finally quit caring and put it in a group of marbles up for auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330533446826&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT get it cheap. others will be coming this weekend -I will be selling my big 1" MKs and my set of character marbles soon too.
  9. This is the last of these that I have: http://stores.ebay.com/Collectible-marbles thanks for the ride!
  10. Large flat rate boxes can hold up to 75 lbs - but the acrylic boxes will not fit - so the best rate is Parcel Post - even better than UPS. If someone does not want the acrylic cases I can probably fit them into 3 separate flat rate boxes. Its workable. I will ship the best rate possible.

  12. Boy I don't know 'nuff about stone marbles to talk much = but that set I have up at auction now has several marbles similar to those of a variety of colors too....so maybe they are dyed...I didn't even know stones could accept a dyeing process until earlier in another thread.
  13. uhhhh yeah - what David said. My collecting days are over - so if you want to check out some great bargains - look over my auctions - and if you have any questions - I have helped several new collectors by donating to them a small ID set to help get you started. Bill
