Re: We've created a monster....
- Most of the major purchases have been me, per usual. My ultimate goal
is to gift much of the stuff that I have amassed to a museum (perhaps
MOCAD) when I can afford to do so. In the meantime, I was recently
offered $20,000 for my set of blue Coral Reef (the only "complete" set
I am aware of in the world). Prices are indeed getting crazy!
Sorry I wasnt getting emails, yahoo had the wrong old email for me.

I knew I would use it and enjoy it. And so I have. However, when I
saw the escalating prices recently I e-mailed my sister as she is an
eBay freak as am I. She sadly told me she'd broken the teapot some
years ago by accident. Washed it and was holding it over the sink by
the "loopy" handle and lost her soapy grip on it. Too bad, so sad.
She does use the sugar and creamer though. We are pleased to see the
escalating prices as we both have some Blanding odds and ends we
picked up for nuttin' back in our garage and estate sale-ing days in
the early '70s. You guys don't want to know what we paid for those
things back then. *heh heh* All plates, however, nothing special.
