Drena West was representing her mother Doreen Sinnett who lives in Oregon. Her site is do you know it?

I had also seen the work of Bluette Maloney.

The work of Ferenc Albert looked wonderful, but hard to see the details on the others, bigger pictures please? :-)

And I also hope you will share what you bought, was there much modern things there too?
