Don't want to use up a lot of John's valuable band width, but have had a few people see my recent auctions and ask what's up...
Unfortunately, the old addage of keeping your friendships and business separate did me in. In the space of a two weeks, my partnership dissolved, lost the shop space and some of the machinary in it (legal stuff now...), and had one heck of a row with the Mrs. due to all the stress.
Regardless, I have to raise some quick cash to salvage what's left, so a lot of my cheerished vintage stuff had to go to the chopping block. What's on Ebay now is round one, more to come next week
A bit of advice...business with friends is fine if you don't mind losing both, otherwise, stay true to your own vision and persevere.
