I only ask because most of his/her prices seemed to be fair and, despite searching, I cannot find these 2 booklets listed on the Emporium website. That being the case, it is unfair to use the term 'ripoff' since they are not obviously available. It may well be that the fine folk at the Emporium are very reluctant to scrap such nicely produced and constructed items. This isn't my listing but I might bid on one or two of the other items.

They often take an item off the list when stocks get low.
Contact Reb and ask her to reserve one for you for your next order.

Me neither! Is this 'official' and why do the Emporium know about it?

That's now half price!! It's been listed several times now over the last couple of months, with no takers. When they first listed it was on for something like £10,995!! :shock:

Total fake though. Compare the picture in https://www.theguardian.com/money/2016/ ... amp-495000 to the one for sale.
