The other day I watched an auction end where an 8" Seabreeze went for 76 or 78 dollars. I know we have all speculated on the reasons for such things. I just wish the people that in the hobby for money would go somewhere else. I wish there was somewhere for a group of people to buy fans that you had to be a collector and you could get a good deal on a fan.
There is no reason for a fan to cost as much as some do. In the end it is still a pile of metals that God will eventually reclaim.
Sure, I'd like to own a Feathervane, but my fans are just as nice to me. Plus they didn't cost near as much.
Just a little rant.
