And to think some people don't like letter enclosures.
scottpel3 - thanks for getting back about the Arbor Day letter. I wonder how the recipients were determined? I have not received my lot yet. I will try to get some info from the APRL
Some comments about my auctions closing last night, those were extras from a 20-year search and study of the FECB, Foreign Exchange Control Board of Canada, a currency control censorship directed primarily at the US.
Way back in 1995 or 1996 I got a national level vermeil for 7 frames, which qualified me for Capex in 1997. It was accepted in a 5-frame version and won a Large Silver with Felicitations. I am told Harry Lussey (rip) liked it. Just last year I reworked it into a 10 frame exhibit, hope to show it at Texpex in Dallas this spring.
In listing the lots I took some advice that Richard F passed on here, when listing something, make an impact with the subject. It has worked well for me many times since.
One thing I did this time was to start 7-day listings on Sunday, then more 5-day on Tuesday, and more 3-day on Thursday. It was interesting to monitor WATCHES in my eBay, I could tell it was going to be an active couple of hours when the lots fell.
Something sellers might want to consider. Or maybe not.
