Gin-For's Odditiques
                    with Forrest, Berlioz, and West German Pottery

(Cats and batteries not included.)

I'm trying to update the site to make Google happy and avoid soft redirects, mobile unfriendly pages, and assorted things that now result in penalties in the search results. So this essay has been moved into the News and Views blog, which is hosted on Wordpress but tied to the Gin-For's Odditiques site. Hope I'm not confusing you, but along with explaining, I have to include enough text to keep Google from thinking that this is too much like other pages I'm doing to deal with other essays.

I'd do an automatic redirect, but Google gets a bit upset by those. You'll have to go ahead and click HERE to whip on over to the new location. Sorry for the trouble, but once you get there, you'll find a lot more information and a more mobile-friendly design. Hope you enjoy it and visit often. In addition to this essay, you'll find numerous entries about W. German pottery, Bodo Mans, fat lava, Ruscha, Scheurich, Ceramano, and much more....with even more to come sooner or later. Ummmm, and don't overlook the links to the items we have for sale.

Buying, Paying, and Such Things

You may notice that we don't have a checkout where you can just click for your goodies without so much as saying hello. Well, we want people to say hello, ask questions, even hope for a better deal. Long ago, I told stories for 7 hours (free refills on coffee), so "impersonal" just isn't my style. Click on one of those "E-mail" buttons. I can't handle as much coffee as I used to, so the stories will be fewer.

These days, Paypal is about the easiest payment method around, but we still take checks, even cash. No Monopoly money, nothing printed up in your basement, no chickens, etc., but otherwise we're fairly flexible. If we can put it in the bank without anyone getting in a tizzy, we'll probably take it.

Please take time to stroll through the site. Sorry we can't offer you a cup of coffee or tea while you're looking, but maybe you can take care of that yourself. Just don't spill it on the keyboard. Hmmm, I seem to be talking about coffee a lot, but talking is one thing I'm still good at. If you run into any questions along the way, there should be an e-mail link on every page, so just click and ask.

Hope you'll enjoy our "sing the body eclectic" approach (with apologies to Walt Whitman). As always, proceeds go to support our creditors, my spouse, our cats, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
