We have a new catalog coming out next week, featuring books on folk art,

* * * *  ENDING SHORTLY ON EBAY  * * * *

We have a number of interesting books ending on Ebay this weekend. Bids on 
a number of items ending Saturday night and Sunday night are still very 
reasonable, so if anything here interests you, please check it out. 
Remember- all our auctions are run with low starting bids, and no reserves, 
so if you are the highest bidder, you will win, no matter how low the price.
