Just wondering how many got this email too?
Will be interesting to see if it's a good alternative to ebay as people are getting tired of the fees.

Forgive me for being so forward with this, I'm trying to get the word out about a new site, Would you mind passing this along to your members? Thank you in advance, Mike

It's been advertised a bit. I've seen it. Ebay has its knocks, but it's got a huge audience. It's always hard to compete with that.

Many years ago there used to be an orchid auction site. It didn't last long, but for a while I was getting some decent plants.

I got it too, to an email address I rarely use online, so I too wonder who they are and how they got my address. As to whether it'll fly, I doubt it. Kinda hard to compete with eBay.

Yes! That was bid4orchids.com, what a cool site is was. It actually worked as a real auction; item did not close until activity stopped. No last second sneaky bids. Oh please, bring back bid4! :sob:
