There is a difference between a trader and a collector. I guess I am a collector and don't feel impelled to go out and sell anything from my collection. I worked for some years in the art business. People have to realize that the current drought of vacpots is just part of the cycle. You see these cycles in the art world if you live long enough. The next cycle may be some years away, but the prices these things will bring in the ensuing years will be pretty spectacular if you can just be patient. Of course, I am talking about the extraordinary examples. We have been a little lucky and a little spoiled by the relatively low prices paid for wonderful pots on Ebay over the past decade. We were those lucky people who got in on something special when there were really not a lot of other people aware of what was going on. If you can be patient, you will be rewarded or perhaps you children or grandchildren will if they inherit your collection. Very well rewarded.

> Hi all...long time no post. Our collecting of vac pots is long over and now we are faced with what to do with them. We may have bought most of them on eBay but I'm not too excited with the idea of selling them back on eBay. Before anyone gets too excited, no, the ruby and the polka dot glasbake will not be up for grabs BUT the rest of them...maybe 150-200 are. If there is a pot out there that you just have to have, there is a pretty good chance we have it or a part...make an offer and we'll see what we can come up with. ...and if anyone is traveling through VT anytime this year, you are more than welcome to stop by and pick what you want.....make a special trip and I'm sure I can make you a real good deal!! I'm serious...there are maybe 10-20 vac pots that we just may want to hold on to (and I'm really not sure that Greg and I actually agree on which ones they are) but we really need to start getting rid of them.
