I will touch on this, seeing that no one else wants to. My collection is mine for a short time, as others have rightly pointed out previously; that we are only temporary caretakers/custodians of these material goods.

Reputations will stand the test of time and we will be remembered via that reputation. Sometimes, it not our actions that we are judged by, but rather the actions of those that we associate with. I for one wouldn't want to be seen in a public setting with her even if it was for a purchase. Others will judge you based on their perception of your actions, only you know your true intentions.

I wouldn't purchase anything from her, even if it was an item I had wanted for many years. The financial gain would not be worth the philosophical moral loss/price of doing business with her. My good reputation, integrity and karma are worth more then anything she could sell me.

We all know how she sells. Is she a better buyer? Who knows, what lies she has told, or who she has defrauded to buy the items she is selling. What kind of karma is attached to those items? I feel people like her are not worth the risk. I can see no good coming out of any association with the likes of her.

Talk is much cheaper then action. I can assure, in no uncertain terms...that I walk the walk on this. I have written off people in past based on my assessment of their character.

We all define and understand life through our own eyes and experience. Our sense of right and wrong is forged and tempered by our assessment and interpretation of that experience. One can clearly draw from this that your sense of right and wrong can be totally different then mine and neither one of us would be wrong.

Thanks Dave, you touched on some views that I never thought about. Kind of changed my views on where my pieces come from and who you deal with.
I have to admit that I paid more for a large Porcelain Ok sign a few years back because it came from the family dealership that had hung it up many years ago and they provided me with a written story of the business and sign which is now taped to the back for the caretaker!!


Thanks
Mike

Enough talk ! I say we handle this the old fashion southern way. We'll drag her behind the pickup for a while through the pasture trying not too miss the "cow pies" and fire ant mounds while playing some Skynerd on the radio or...we could just don't do business with her any more and sleep well at night. There are "Little Shannos" in every hobby where a quick buck can be made. Communication is the key and you guys are "Mass Communicating" ! LOL Her days are numbered. Dave

CataulaDave I like your southern style. If you throw in a little Molly Hatchet I call shotgun.
Seems like another person on ebay to add to my list of not to buy
from . So far its a pretty good size list.

Dave ,well put Qoute .It's not our actions that we are judged by, but rather the actions of those that we associate with.

Good post Dave.Around here we have a saying..."you are known by the company you keep"... try to keep thought in mind.












Good post Dave.Around here we have a saying..."you are known by the company you keep"...I try to keep that thought in mind.I do think that people tend to surround themselves with others who have similar morals and values to find their own "comport zone"and then pretty much stay in that zone.I know I try to do that.

I could not and would not buy a sign from her even if it was something I really really wanted.
I guess like most of you my collection makes me happy and if I bought a sign from her every time I looked at the sign I would be reminded of all the people she has screwed over the years and it wouldn't make me happy.
I like to be proud of the things I have collected and I certainly couldn't be proud of that.

Dave & Bob have pretty well echoed my sentiments on the subject! I "would not" buy the holy grail from them, even at bargain prices! I have only ever hit the "delete button" when a piece of his ends up in my watch file.
Some of you keep referring to "her" and it is a man & woman team and the man in the picture is obviously the one in charge and doing the buying and selling, with the woman running signs back and forth to the truck. I don't know his name yet but they are both guilty by association.
I hope he reads this thread and wakes up to the damage he's caused to himself and the hobby too.

I am pretty much with K.W. on this one. His name is Dennis Berline, and pretty much hits all the central Illinois, auctions. For many years he dealt mostly in General store items, and branched out into petroleum items about 5 or 6 years ago. I have not bought anything from him because he is usually way to high for me.A lot of the things he buys at auction, are authentic and he moves them right on out, along with the fake stuff.

I do not know them but looking at their ebay listings I see some stuff that was my brothers that he sold at Peotone. Finished auctions I see some things that I sold at Columbia Missouri. I probably would not recognize them if I passed them on the street. Did anyone actually every ask them at a show why they are cheating people out of their money by selling fake stuff? I wonder if people would actually call them on their actions to their face if they would change? One of the signs they got from me was a Texaco and they did make money on it. Two other two they lost money on. Overall they did come out ahead on the things they bought from me. It looks like they list items with no reserve and let the auctions run?
