I finally found one of my long sought-after Silkstones on Ebay. Naturally, when she was offered everywhere at give-away prices, I kept thinking I’d get around to buying her someday. Then, recently, I happened to see a photo of her and realized that I still thought she was gorgeous. Time to get serious! I checked around on Ebay and was amazed at how her price had skyrocketed over time and, coupled with Ebay’s new shipping policy of charging import duties, she was definitely now out of my price comfort zone. But, luckily, I found one for sale right here in my own country (no import duties) and here she is!
