Flag Dude was represented at FI by his able spouse Amanda.

As a matter of fact I had a special order that I put in with her and Rick contacted me when he got back from Crisis.
That reminds me… I need to send him a check!

Flag Dude was represented at FI by his able spouse Amanda.

And Amanda is a lovely person. I'll order from either Rick or Amanda. I have a better rapport with Rick.

Maybe we ought to do a poll of the 5 Historicon vendors whose loss we most lament. This could include vendors who have closed down and ones still in operation that don't come much/at all anymore.
