Philabaum sale

So, My old Friend Tom Philabaum is closing down his glassworks after fifty years. Tom has retired from blowing and will continue to make fused work and will paint. Currently, a schedule is being set for the sale of tools and color. We will hopefully be able to list that sale here. It will be short and fast. I will list details as we work on them.

I have not received anything from Tom and I believe the sale starts Wed the 13th-16th 10-4 . It is being held in Tucson. I don't know what is or isn't available.

It'd be really great if Tom wouldn't mind putting out a list with pricing. I have some friends with a timeshare in Tucson right now and I'd ask them to pick some things up for me but I'd be hesitant to ask them to go over there and waste their time if there's nothing of interest to me. I know this is out of your hands Pete, but maybe a nudge from you could convince him to list the offerings?

I have tried a number of times and have had no success.

You could always go to Nogales, not far away at all and see the horror of Caravans in the sonoran desert. Visit some wall, see concertina wire in triple loops. See our military. Wave at children in cages. As time allows, visit Yuma , see the same thing. Or, head east to El Paso. See the same thing. It will swell you with nationalistic pride.

Email them and they’ll send you a list with prices.

My friends who were visiting did stop by for me but they arrived a bit later than the opening bell and sounds like a lot of the bar colors were already scooped up by the other glass blowers in Tucson I suppose. Hopefully it was a successful sale for him. The prices were quite good on the bars I saw listed..
