I was checking out your web site & saw the fishing float story. I have been collecting floats for a few years now I have about 50. Last year I bought a cool purple pumpkin float at the Canyonville show. I love all the unusual ones with crudity, swirls and odd shapes. The smaller ones I display on top of bottles in the window. My son brought me the most bizarre one I have. It’s called a trinary float. While doing research, I found one that sold for $1,400 in 2009 on Worthpoint. Someday I might put a pix on our web site so people can check it out. I thought I would share a couple pix with you. You are welcome to use them on your site if you want. You’ve done a great job on your site and it’s real nice. Hope to see you & Elizabeth at our Downieville show (see information below).
So what is Leisalu To Leeceelou? That is Leisa and Lou Lambert’s eBay handle. Mine and Elizabeth’s is Leeceelou. Always thought that was interesting. Elizabeth’s father called her Leecee. When I met her I called her Leeceelou. She answered me by calling me Hootus so I stopped.
