We have gathered a nice assortment of apparatus, books, posters and more for our June auction. In addition, David Haversat is selecting a nice assortment of items from the Christopher collection that will also be included.

For more details, please visit www.martinka.com . Updates will be sent to all registered users.

Hi Ted,

I've sent a couple emails, but no reply. Did you get them?

I have the same issue. No reply to my email. The communication is very difficult, near impossible. I think, like many other people I know I'll stop to bid on these auctions.

Likewise: I still have to receive the books I bought at the Christopher's auction and my emails are seldom replied to. I'm not impressed...

I, too, am awaiting a reply. Some years ago when this happened it was because of the filters Martinka have on their mail, I was told. Reason now is probably work pressure although my e-mail was sent well before the Christopher auction.

Anthony,

Ted replied to one of my emails, but not to others. His promises to "check" the whereabouts of my books did not materialize with a shipment or a follow-up email...

I'm afraid I will have to open a complaint with PayPal... :(

Marco,

Noted. Sad because I got to know Ted personally because he bought the name and business from my old friend Jackie Flosso.

I had the same results, i.e., telephone messages unanswered,
email...no response.

After my posts on this board yesterday, I've been informed that my package has been shipped by Martinka - which I appreciate.

Better late than never :)

Hi Marco,

Per the email we sent you last week, we were looking into the problem. As you know, Gabe Fajuri had bought these books on your behalf, and there was an error in how the order was processed. I apologize for the delay. Your items are now on there way to you.

Ken and Anthony,

I checked our system and do not show that you won any auction items in the last few sales. I also did not find any emails from you.

Please call us at 201-444-7576 and we'll do what we can to help you.

Ted,

I e-mailed you some time ago about a Soo poster I have for sale.

Best
Anthony
