It was supposed to be up with a new auction tonight. I subscribed even. So far, nothing is up. Is Martinka defunct or?

Why would you make an inflammatory remark about a well-known business, asking if it's "defunct," just because auctions might be starting a few hours, or a day, late?

Ted often starts a bit late and slow and it's absolutely nothing to be concerned about. I've both bought and sold on Martinka and always found Ted to be a stand-up guy.

David is right I have bought several items from them throughout the years. It will probably be up later this afternoon and you can always find some pretty outstanding stuff.

Had contact with Ted yesterday, 19 January 2008 on a personal matter and there is absolutely nothing wrong at Martinka, Inc.
It's not about the magic; it's about the daily box office gross.

Whatever the cause of the slight delay, you can bet it will be worth the wait.
