    Default FS Elymwold forks

    So, I am slowly rehoming my collection as I have cut my hair due to sensitive scalp and inability to wear it up. It pains me to do this as I have carefully curated my collection since 2012 but there is no need to have some really nice things sitting while others would love and use them...so here goes.

    As usual, paypal only. Please provide payment within 24 hours. Priority within the US 7.00, 14.00 international without tracking. Please pay fee or as friends and family if comfortable doing so.

    My intention is to keep the sets together. I will not spit them. If someone wants to buy and split later that is fine. It is just that they are really special as a set and I would like to keep them as Nigel intended.

    I am sadly lacking links. I have them as sold links but I cannot favorite them for some reason for the link so not sure what to do with that. Ideas would be helpful. Will copy and paste verbage from sold page. PM with interest or any questions.

    Thank you so much!! Its really hard to part with them! All of the items I have I put a lot of time and patience in to stalking and collecting. They mean a lot to me. I am sure especially some of the long time collectors can sympathize. I've been looking at them and not wearing them for longer than I would like to admit. Its time they get used and loved as they were intended, especially the ones that are no longer produced!

    I have long admired your taste in hairtoys. Sadly, the ones that I would have grabbed or gone.

    Ah, thank you! I'm sorry you missed what you wanted I hate that. Nice to see your name by the way. I just am not around much anymore but I do lurk. I guess I am on hair autopilot.
