    I sold antique chairs & secondhand chairs ( one & the same thing realy) for 30 years in this city, the number of houses i cleared i cant remember.
    Point is if its secondhand chairs by chippendale or paintings by piccaso in the trade its all just so much secondhand tat with a price on its head & hype just fuels the flames & profit rules supream.

    Because we dont coment here dosent mean were not interested, I read all the posting here, & great food for thought they are. When i feel i have something constructive to add to a topic, then i post.

    Ebay is a fantastic marketplace for anything & everything, i think people are just having a rest from the inflated prices & having a little protest with their wallets, but when that one article appears for sale that everyone wants then watch the bidding take off, am allways on the look out for a bargain myself & trawl ebay endlessly

    However not to put to fine a point on it the painter has entered the marketplace with a price on his head, as have all the greats & if we have to have wallpaper hanging on our walls then much better that it increases in value & gives pleasure at the same time.

    I would suggest that like any auction the buyer fixes a price in his head & sticks to it.
    I paid Bookfayre a total of £770 for the Mary notebook & print through Ebay& am more than happy with my purchase at that price.

    Bidding up an item can never be stopped same as ringing an auction where known to each other buyers collude in bidding to keep the price down.
    Let the buyer beware!

    Account suspended, no reason given by ebay.
    I was the high bidder, i had bought the previous Mary notebook from Bookfayre & had no problems at all, all went smoothly.

    Why does it seem all are against Chris parsonage!

    He is a very pleasant charming man, the work he does is well planned & executed & a credit to the city.
    Yes he is in business to make money but then so is every gallery owner & every artist wants paying for his work also i havent yet met one art collector yet who dosent have an eye on his collections financial value.

    If and when Mr parsonages mural restoration takes place am sure it will be to a high standard as are all his projects.

    I see general discussion on this subject or any other as healthy & informative, but these personal attacks on each other here help no one.

    Please be nice people.

    I dont see people queing up to restore the mural!

    Surely any restoration is better than leaving it in the decaying state its in, if Chris parsonage is willing to fund the restoration then good for him, and if he manages to earn a few shillings into the bargain then doubly good for him.

    This way it ends up being a win win situation & after all business is business.
    Good for the Mural, good for the barbican & good for him.

    Yes i believe Plymouth needs Lenkiewicz here in the city & the city is being short sighted in not embracing the artist & his works, not often does such an oppotunity come along.
    Robert made Plymouth his home & brought colour & chracter to the city, the world needs chracters to brighten up our hum drum lives & he certainly did that. It would be all our loss if he was lost to the city.
    Plymouth city needs to wake up to what is happening & not allow this opportunity to slip away, the artist & the man are allready acknowledged on the world stage & will be there with the greats in time, if he isnt allready!

    The lock of hair issue must be easy to authenticate through DNA & if found to be genuine then its in the public domain & free to be traded like any other item. It must be in the owners interest to have it tested to clarify the point of genuine or not, & to stop any other dubious bits & pieces turning up, as they will do if not checked.
