Re: Selling Vams - Heritage Dec. 3rd 1878-1885

:popcorn: Not sure Dec is a good month for selling or any major hollidays time. Also the no premium vams dont sell well attributed. heritage makes 20% while the consignor takes what they can get, which lends to a huge screwing.=IMHO its gotton much worse this last yr or so.
