Thanks for your response. I understand it was rather an unusual question.
Fans have been my passion for over twenty years. I have purchased many from ebay and etsy and am well aware of what is available and of the different fan associations.
My designs are bold and different and I will continue to have more made but I hope I will be a little wiser next time.
I suppose I was more interested in the potential of those collectors who buy and trade in the rare and very limited edition items whatever they may be. The collector in me thinks I have such an item.
Only time will tell!!!
Thank you again for you time.
