Wants & Wishes Bulletin Board
(A Public Service For Shell Collectors Worldwide!)
NOTE: This Bulletin
Board will be only as good as you
I will keep it reasonably neat and orderly, but you must make
your wants known if it is to work at all. What can you loose? If
you are looking for something,
it never hurts to
Post your wants
link: include all info you deem relevant!!.
Requests and info will be posted regularly!!)
Wants Finder (So you don't have
to search forever to find what you want!!)
OUR Wants (What we at Schooner.. are looking for!!)
Notes: 1): I will "link"
each poster's name, to make it easy to contact them: When you click on
the name, an e-mail window to them will open up!!
...........2): Each posting will be listed
exactly as written (if your e-mail program lets you do colors, underlines,
etc, that is what will be posted. (exceptions will be a) anything not shell-related,
b) anything that dances, wiggles, or otherwise moves, and c) any letter
size too large.)
...........3): Postings will be acknowledged
when recieved, and posted at each list update (every Friday is the plan,
except when i am away)
...........4): If you wish to change or modify
your wants, no problem- i will do this!!
...........5): The rest, i leave up to you:
.....This section is included for all
who don't wish to scroll through miles (eventually!) of entries just to
find what they are looking for! Click on the initials in each category
to get to approriate postings (New categories will be added as they are
needed, so don't panic if you don't see yours!!), and use the frequent
"finder" links to get back here for the next one. Postings AND initials
will be arranged according to WHEN they arrive, so
get yours in early!! Good luck, and good hunting.
