Yeah, amazing how much stuff Jeannie and Mike have. My wife
and I have offered to help them sell any of the stuff that
we dont buy <smile>, so we could help by shipping stuff to
other members on the mainland. They do have a ton of stuff
and there will be more than enough to go around, (although
we have already put dibs on the maroon HF set).
If you and any other members are serious about coming out
here in May, just let me know, I can help with good cheap
places to stay, things to do, etc. Also, my wife and I
would love to host a dinner party or reception type
gathering at our home if anyone comes out. It would be great
to share our collections with other serious DB/Hawaiiana
fans and we would be happy to set something up.
Also, the Honolulu Academy of Arts is having a huge show to
kick off a new collectors book that will be definitive for
Hawaiian stuff and which has a bunch of my blanding and
tepco and wallace stuff in it. I will find out dates
because I think they will overlap. In addition, they are
interested in doing a whole Blanding show so perhaps we can
all work together to put something great on (more after I
have chatted with their people about the size, scope, etc.).
All the best, Michael

I would be delighted to photograph any and all of Jeannie's collection
with my digital camera and put a web-album on my website. I am
only about 12 miles from Honolulu (when I'm not traveling for work).
It would be good to start collecting high quality photos of DB pieces
and eventually compile a CD which could be distributed to the group.
