FYI, two years ago I got 2 Itoya Evolution Profolios from Penwa and not once did a 18x24 print not fit into those. Hyatts.com has them for $18.56 btw.

I checked them out, but $73 was not a good deal for one. $48 for postage of one item

No, got a couple of offers yesterday. But at the prices I was given I could get that set that I spoke to you about. Shame, but I'm not paying over the odds. I found that guy in US that had/has one at a great price but won't ship to the UK (it's the same post office!) and have a man in US that I could have had him ship to instead, then get it relaid to me but seemed too much hassle

How's it going with you?

Actually I watched the LotR films over the last few days - made me want that Horkey variant even more!

Kinda quiet - just in the middle of gutting my work room to accommodate the plan chest I got last week. Seems to have instigated a complete renovation - new carpet, redecoration, general clean out of years of accumulated 'stuff'. I'll also have to resite all the AV equipment. Oh yes - puts the Syrian crisis into perspective when you're faced with having dust off all your Alien model kits!

On the plus side my eBay auctions are going well so I should have the money to sort out Poster Mountain and get that Creature print sent over... if they ever give me the exact figure I owe them.

Well the offer still stands, I've been looking all over but can't find a reg at a reg price or a set people are willing to split

That's a bit shoddy of them, when did you last hear from them?

Sounds like a job and a half...I feel your pain, our cupboard in a hall needs sorting but it looks very unstable in there, not sure I've got the right amount of courage yet...best give it a few more days!

My eBay auction isn't particularly applicable to this place but they are collectible posters... set of 4AD promo posters released in 1986 by my favourite designer Vaughan Oliver.

May daughter has just made me a set of poster weights. Dried chickpea filling! Yum!

Nice, really nice. If there were any of his Pixies pieces, I would have been all over that.
