Fellow Citizens, 

Having once been at the forefront of all things coiffeuse, I have decided, after years of fretful deliberation, to pass the tools of the trade on to hose who hold more of an interest for the art. 


The following, though they might not seem like much, have been my fellows on many a journey, and it is my hope to find them homes that will treat them as the coveted instruments they have always been. 


I would like to start the bidding for the entire lot at 1,200 florins, and move forward from there. If you are interested, I beg that you post your bidding offers here, both as a form of courtesy to others whom also might have interest, and so that we might have a record of our dealings should we need a reference in the future. 


 Until such time that it is decided that this form of selling will not work, I will be selling the items altogether as an entire set. 


~ Lidia Avarsch

Thank you for bidding so far!

I'm pleasantly surprised, and grateful for the amazing support that has been shown thus far. 


I'll leave this open for three more days, [Let's say until December 4th, @ midnight, EST] at which point, we will have a final winner.
