Here's a turtle tagua carving that deserves an explanation. Back in the 1990's the artists started dipping white tagua carvings in the dyes their wives and sisters made for dyeing chunga fiber for their baskets. What we have here is a tagua carving that was dipped in a dye made by boiling cocobolo wood chips. Unfortunately the artists don't do this much anymore. I always liked the effect.

This is an old carving as well. Our son recently moved across town and since he does much of the shipping we moved the inventory. In the process we recognized that about 1000 carvings had dropped out of the Traderbrock system. So I am loading them back with some in Molamagic, Traderbrock's sister eBay store and the Traderbrock website.

The good news is our inventory value is higher than we thought. The bad news is I am 73 and may be packing for heaven before I get the job done. Why don't you just buy our whole business and let me retire?
