I wanted to take a moment and respond to a comment that was left by one of you. What you wrote made me really think about my feelings in regard to collecting vintage items. This is what anonymous wrote....
Just to clarify some things, I have never written that I didn't want him to be able to resell what he bought. I have also never stated that it's bad to buy something, resell it and make a profit on it. I linked to his auction because I'm amazed at what he wanted for his opening bid! Will someone come along and pay that much for a chair?? Probably! But it won't be me! It sounds like you might be taking things personally due to reasons that have nothing to do with me? You can disagree with me in regards to my opinion all you want but get the facts right about what I said before you respond to me.
Now, in regards to the EHD. I call him that simply because, if it's an advertised auction that has heywake listed for sale, my evil nemesis (An opponent that cannot be beaten or overcome)
the heywake dealer will be there. Meaning there will be less of an opportunity for me to be able to afford a piece of furniture... as I am cheap and don't have the money like he does. But what can I say, that is life and it seems that in regard to material things, who ever has the most money usually wins! When the EHD is not around I get heywake pieces at this price
. Do I know if this guy is evil in real life?? No! But in regards to my heywake auction world, he will always be the evil heywake dealer.
Now, in regards to me as a person....do I buy from dealers? Yup! Do I try to promote other people's businesses so that more people can buy from them and they stay around? Yup! Do I believe in selling items for profit? Yup! Have I done it myself? Yup!
As for the comments by others left on my blog.... I have taken them in an empathetic, funny way and not meant as actually something mean or with the intention to do harm!
Perhaps Anonymous, you need to lighten up?
