Hi everyone,

I have enough daffodil show properties to put on a show of up to 1,500 to 2,000 stems.  Our show is permanently canceled and Fran and I are in the process of moving to New Jersey if we can get everything sold down here.

I made all these blocks myself except the glass used in the test tubes and three stems.  I want to give them away.  If you are within the area where I go to shows, I can most likely deliver them.  If not I would have to ask for shipping money.

I don’t want to piece mill them, but would like to give them in their entirety, or in lots.  Not a little of this and a little of that.

I will make the final judgement as to where they go.  If I can’t give them away, I am not moving them and they will probably end up in the dump
