chiquita ... all

as someone who buys and sells mccoy ... the repros just make me sick.  I
know one of the members of this list has a pamphlet out about the repro
cookie jars ... but seeing that red riding hood at private auction on
Ebay just really makes me angry.

what else can we do?  there are always repros on good pottery items but
it would seem this situation is more agressive than most ... even with
the Roseville repros ... one rarely sees such agressive marketing on
Ebay.

would a group letter, signed by all of us and directed to the
appropriate ebay department help?  I don't like sitting here and just
getting angry.  my name on it wouldn't help but yours, and some of the
other people who've collected McCoy for years would ... what do you
think??
