Puzzles for Sale 2023
Our 2023 Fall Sale began on November 3 and ended 9 pm, EST, November 12, 2023. If you have signed up or emailed us to receive notification, or been notified and participated in past sales, you should have been notified on November 3rd. If you have any doubts, just email us so we can recheck our mailing list for future sales.
All puzzles were sold with most going by overbids. Many new bidders joined in and won puzzles. We need your addresses to draft bills and mail out puzzles (unless you bought from us before). I have checked the bidding and what you see on the screen is final. However, if you think there is an error, please contact me ASAP. We listen! Puzzles are shipped only after we receive your check. For customers living close to Worcester you are invited to drive to my cottage, view my workshop and puzzles, and "talk puzzles". Personal checks are fine; no charging accepted. PayPal allowed for sales abroad with the buyer paying all fees. While bills have a charge for insurance added, you may delete it and "self insure". Drafting and sending out bills has proved very challenging for me at age 87. Emperor Joseph II of Austria after listening to a short piano piece written and played by Mozart said, " simply too many notes, that's all.". Well, I say, "Simply too many screens, that's all"! Son Conrad is returning from a long weekend in Vermont and will take over (hopefully).
Regardless of how you learned of our sale, you can participate in future sales through this website page, using email to place bids. We also urge you to read the "About the 2023 Sale and Instructions" to get a feel of how the sale works. We welcome all serious bidders from around the world (although it is more expensive for a foreign buyer because of currency exchange, PayPal charges, insurance and overseas shipment).
