It appears that our economy is attempting to expand
and thus, Belleek appears to be ‘falling out of the sky’
currently ?? I’ve assembled four major sources for
Belleek that will all be offering for Auction within the
next month, some VERY QUALITY items you may be
interested in acquiring for your Collection !! Everyone
should clearly understand eBay’s format for Bidding
on their Auctions and each of the other three have
all their specific rules for registration, viewing of
lots On-Line, absentee and On-Line bidding,
purchasers premiums, etc., clearly explained on
their Sites !!

I’ve listed the eBay Auction first, as it is ongoing,
followed by the other three Auctions listed in order

Sales Room by Pat Hennessey,
          Empire Chapter BCIS

I always find that one of the highlights of the
convention is the Sales Room. To see so much
Belleek in one place is a treat, to be able to go
home with some of it makes it even better. Another
plus is to have the opportunity to chat with the
individuals who deal in Belleek and have such a depth
of knowledge about it. This convention's sales room
has an outstanding group of participants. Olga Clarke,
Kathleen Mitchell and Eileen O'Neill are planning to
take part as they have in past conventions. There
will also be participants selling selected Belleek from
family collections including those of the late Honoree
Fred Gary and the late Father Will Griffin. It will be
a rare opportunity to see these items and obtain a
remembrance from these and other collections.

If you are looking for any particular piece of Belleek,
please let me know at :


I will share your request with those in the sales
room in hopes that your chances of finding your
heart's desire is increased. This was done at a past
convention and vendors were able to bring many of
those pieces with good results for all.

Looking forward to seeing you at the convention and
in the sales room!

Let's party while we can.
All good things must come to an end.
This will be our LAST
Belleek International Convention.
It’s one not to be missed!
Our chapters are unable to host future conventions,
but, our sincere thanks go out to all those chapters
who played host to us at past conventions.
They were all great ones!
This last convention is being hosted by the members,
who have hosted earlier ones,
we couldn’t do it without them.
So, let’s go out in style! Belleek Style!
Special things planned,
we hope you can make it!!!!

**-- I Need A Parrot --**

A man went into the pet shop, "I am playing Long John
Silver in the local amateur dramatic societies version
of Treasure Island and need a parrot to sit on my
shoulder," he said.

"I don't have any parrots at the moment, but you
wouldn't want a real parrot for that. It would squawk
in all the wrong places, poop on your shoulder and
generally be a nuisance. What you need is a stuffed
parrot. Just as realistic and easily controlled."

"I'm not sure a stuffed parrot would be okay," said
the customer. "I do want this performance to be as
realistic as possible."

"I am sure a stuffed parrot would be fine," said the
pet shop owner. "I have one at home. I'll bring it in
and if you come back on Thursday you can have it."

"Sorry," said the customer, "I can't make it on
Thursday. That's the day I'm having my leg cut off."


I really do intend to begin this series, BUT I was
pressed into getting this Newslettre out in a timely
fashion due to the dates of the upcoming Auctions !!
THANKS for your understanding ??
