    Bay Area sale and meet *PICS*

    Feel free to add pics if you got them...I was too fascinated I really didn't get enough XD.

    The display table with a nice N. aristo X ventricosa

    For years I've wanted one of these.. N. veitchi " candy striped".. I asked the owner about it and it turns out he has eight of them as big as this so hopefully they'll flower soon.

    anyways thats all I got from it... I would have taken some pics of the auction table items but everyone wanted a look at the items. If I can remember correctly the adrian slack went for 70, the reptilian rose for 40, and the three baby Edwardsianas went for 210 all together (from a anonymous BA vendor).

    If you went please let me know so I can put some faces on the people I saw ( I was the one in the jacket bidding up the eddies next to my dad). Overall it was pretty great and I came home with a nice specimen of N. (veitchi X lowii)X boschiana which certainly makes a great Bday present!

    Post pics if ya got em!

    I only stayed for about fifteen minutes. The crowd was un-navigable, and several times I had someone cut in front of me, mid conversation! (Not a CP peep, just random visitors)

    what I saw was NICE, and I envy the lucky bloke that got the eddies.

    I was the gal in the green knit cap and BRIGHT tie dye handbag.

    Lance: Thanks for the effort posting some pic at the show. That veitchii is pretty awesome. It caused me to stop breathing for awhile when i saw it.

    Lil Stinkpot: I am really sorry that people cut in like that. I hope we would have better spacing next year, and less rude visitors.

    We can go for days without food, but we can't pass 5 minutes without air. REMEMBER TO BREATH!!!

    Trouble breathing? Let me know.
