    All the signs say it's going to be a winner. Thanks RLK, for once again saving me from an ebay purchase

    Montecristi in a box


    Won this one yesterday. Not sure what will arrive, but planning a future Optimo Optimo if it works out.
    For $11.02 it seemed a reasonable gamble. Any one heard of the Ecuadorian seller Ramon L. Zambrand?

    I cleared out 14 hats last week and I've already acquired 4 more. It may be time for an intervention.

    I wonder if "Mad Men" has helped create this new heightened interest?
    Oh, I don't know about that...

    People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.

    Nice one...As soon as it came up I tried to BIN.The seller said there was already a lot of interest so turned me down.I would have paid more than that .
    Don't ask me how I know.....

    After a series of heart-breaking losses, I finally got this one:

    Now we'll see what the seller means by "tiny divits"...

    Yeah, tell me about it! I have found one 6-7/8 and one 7-1/4, both stingies and neither particularly nice or desirable...and I have been haunting several area Goodwills for a few months now!
    Always keep your clothes and weapons where you can find them in the dark.

    Oh, so you got that one. I bid on it early, then watched it go. Congratulations & here's hoping that the "tiny divits" really are tiny.
