Londonbus1: The strength of Cinderellas is rising. The bargains are not there anymore and the middle to better items are going for way above normal. Interesting. Apr 23, 2015 7:00:51 GMT
Admin: Just a thought, with the cost of modern postage stamps, maybe many collectors are finding Cinderella's more appealling Apr 23, 2015 17:24:10 GMT
Admin: I have also notice many members here are now also cindy collectors, maybe all your excellent posts as turned them :) Apr 23, 2015 17:39:33 GMT
firstfrog2013: Well they are fewer however as proven by my give-aways there are bargains out there.(the last set was less than $15)Gotta look in other ebays as well as the U.S. one. Apr 23, 2015 23:30:57 GMT
Londonbus1: I am looking at other ebays as well as Delcampe and others. The general trend is upward with better/classic items hard to find at even market price Apr 24, 2015 5:09:14 GMT
Londonbus1: All good fun though, we need to search harder ! Apr 24, 2015 5:09:42 GMT
firstfrog2013: I agree.Prices seem on real rise over all.Many of the things I got years ago now command two or three times my purchase price.CINDY POWER !!! (:)) Apr 24, 2015 12:42:38 GMT
firstfrog2013: Jack any idea of next auction date?? Our big spring job starts Monday hope my body holds up.Prints stamped and blasting to happen in week or so.Should be a fun job over all. Apr 25, 2015 23:04:29 GMT
Admin: Frog I thinking of letting auctions rest over the summer, maybe in the fall when most will have the stamp bug back Apr 26, 2015 0:29:07 GMT
Admin: But if enough members want a mid summer Auction I sure something could be arranged Apr 26, 2015 0:29:51 GMT

firstfrog2013: Got to stay alert on this one.It calls for pressurized waste system so glue is mandatory on every fitting.Also elevations are unforgiving can't waste a bit of pitch anywhere.I know it's gobblely goop sounding but that's my job. Apr 26, 2015 1:04:20 GMT
Andy Pastuszak: Selling off some extra Ukraine I have lying around. Apr 26, 2015 3:31:48 GMT
firstfrog2013: The walk went well.I was the pace setter for most of the lot and had a GREAT time.My voice and banter could be heard all the way to the back I'm told.Team Ruby Echo raised over $5000 and had forty walkers.One of the largest teams there. Apr 26, 2015 22:42:01 GMT
firstfrog2013: Our team included some of the roller derby girls. I had to urge them to keep up with me.I guess the old guy still moves pretty good. Apr 26, 2015 22:45:15 GMT
