Copy provided upon request. My ebay user ID stems from my love of flowers, the Vanda cristata is a species of orchid found in the Himalayas and I see wandering through a Himalayan orchid filled lane as a beautiful vision. Thereupon Vandalane was born. My name is Alison and I am that person who has passion for various areas of antiques. My love started with Australian Colonial furniture which led me to Georgian sterling and jewelery, both offering me unique opportunities that I am ever grateful for, some pieces now housed in world leading Museums and collections. Many people ask me this and my response is that collecting is a hunt, we all love antique fairs and auctions - ebay offers the hunt. You will find me selling a combination of Auction & Buy it now(with offer), if I can secure an item for a good price I will always try and pass on the saving as I firmly believe an item is worth what someone is willing to pay. More so I actually enjoy ebay, all the wonderful people I've come to know through here and the art of listing items - it is a creative process that I thoroughly enjoy. While the internet is a fine source of information I cannot recommend highly enough the importance of actual reference books.
