Goodbye Old Friend (West Coast)

I sold my old Kelsey this past weekend. I placed an ad on Briar Press and Craigslist. I also looked up some wanted ads on Briar, and emailed a few people. I remember when I was looking desperately for a press how hard it was to find one without feeling completely gouged for the price. I charged what I paid for it. I got a good deal on my new one, and felt I wanted to help out a fellow letterpress person starting out. It was a nice transaction. I know it went to a good home. It was sad to see it go since I really learned to print on it. But at the same time, it is nice to have the elbow room for my new bigger press. I have a large spot on my work table to spread out when I print. It will be nice to finish up my plate and send it out. I have been working on some new designs for the past few weeks. It is hard to find the solid time to complete them. Hopefully in the next few days I will have them ready to send off for plates.

Oh, and congrats on the quick and easy sale. :)
