I'm helping to liquidate the collection of a friend of mine that was really into turtles and tortoises. The proceeds will go towards building a library in his name. This is one of the ads for his things; other ads will be posted over the next several months.

If this ad is still up, the item is available; please do not contact me just to ask that.

If you are interested, either call or email (no texts). I usually check my computer a few times each day, or you can often reach me quicker by calling the house phone between 7am and 8pm. (click ‘reply’, then ‘show phone number’)
