Dear Collectors,I have been so overwhelmed with things around here that I completely forgot that the Creede show dates were changed shortly after I re-signed up for it at the end of last year's show. It is actually August 6-8th, not this weekend (thankfully, I am completely unprepared for a show this weekend. Linda is still not recovered enough from her recent surgery to come along and help if it were this weekend, so I would be on my own - though Mike Martinez, who is visiting right now, was willing to extend his vacation and come along to help if need be).Any way, this offering is probably the simplest I have ever had. I usually like to have some kind of description with each specimen (not really sure if that helps or is just clutter to potential buyers though). Mike typed these in to the computer for me while I worked on other things yesterday and I never got the chance to add any comments since. So - feel free to contact me and ask if you need further details on any specimen you are interested in.
