Just before Christmas I loaded up a couple of my notice boards on Ebay France and they sold to my delight! On the delivery information of one of them was a name I recognised - surname, but not first name. It is an unusual name and belongs to a big family. After all the business side was dealt with and the item sent off and received I sent her an email asking if she was related by any chance to X. The reply came back quickly that they are and they see them fairly often.
I wonder how many other coincidences like this occur on ebay? We all have our favourite sellers and may get to know people that way but this was a totally independant and anonymous sale.
This is the notice board she bought, plus a couple of others I still have in stock. They are for sale and if anyone is interested please leave a comment. I will then contact you to let you know how to go about it.
The stripey one above has a heavy string to put your pictures behind with "antique" studs.
This pink one is a Cath Kidston fabric with pink ribbon and gold coloured studs to hold it in place.
This is a wonderful zebra patterned velour - black ribbon and again the gold coloured studs.
All my notice boards come with a ring on the back for hanging on the wall.
And now it's time to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May 2008 bring you all good health and happiness.
